Heavy Guy Chandelier XL

Update: TouchOfModern has this big guy on sale for $188 for a limited time. The smaller version of this chandelier has always stood out for its elegance and affordability, but man-oh-man, the extra large version is even better. It's almost 5 feet across! This is a prime example of getting one heck of a bang for a few bucks. Heavy Guy Chandelier XL: 59" D x 30" H (from ceiling to lowest section), reg. $240.00, ...Read more

Aalto stool 60, Rings

Another anniversary stool? Sure, let's have it. Alvar Aalto's three legged Stool 60 turns 80 this year, and we've already seen a few other versions that piqued our collective interest. Nao Tamura's version is decorated with the growth rings of a tree, 80 rings to be exact, and the size of the rings are never the same. Unfortunately, it appears that no US retailer carries it. Sad for those of us here in ...Read more

Loll’s Containers

So, with the nice weather here it might be time to add a few plants around your home. And, sure, your local plant nursery probably has plenty of decent pots and planters, but wouldn't it be nice to have something a little better than decent? Perhaps something that hits the modern/minimal spot? Take a look at Loll's containers and tell me if they're not better than these guys. Each ...Read more

Tilt Stool

An earlier iteration of this stool by Justin Gologorsky had a foam covering and was more than twice the current price, so I'd say this updated version is worth a look or two. The Tilt Stool has a gentle curve to its base, allowing you to keep your core muscles engaged by rocking back and forth. Turn it on its side and it becomes a stable seat or side table. ...Read more

Mass Book Stand

So, does the ubiquity of the Sapien Bookcase have you down? Are you sick of seeing it in some of the modern interiors magazines, and you want to spend at least $2,500 more on something a bit more out of reach, maybe by a successful designer? After all, those piles of cash aren't going to spend themselves. Seriously though, this chunky book stand by Mr. Tom Dixon is mightily impressive. At ...Read more

Also available in red and green/avocado. Designers: Helen T. Miller / Jordan Murphy...Read more

Elder Chair, Design by Conran

So, if you peruse the decor magazines, you might have seen the ads for the Design by Conran collection at JC Penny. Have you had a chance to take a look? Yea/nay? Of what I think are the winners, first up is the Elder Chair, and despite its shape reminding me a little of Chairy or some other kid's show chair, I like the classic proportions and generous size. ...Read more
