Whoa, this sofa used to be $3000, now it’s at $1000…talk about a sale.

…the Parcel Collection (2006) expresses the designers’ belief that our furniture should reflect a state of casualness, relaxation and rejuvenation…Bernett and Dodziuk designed the Parcel Sofa to be roomy enough to stretch out on, with deep seats that encourage nesting, even for the tallest user. The Sofa has a slightly angled back and wide soft armrests. Place the Ottoman snuggly against either the Sofa or Chair to instantly create a chaise.

Osorom Bench/Table

This would require a bit more money out of the bank than most other coffee tables, but it’s amazing, so it makes sense that it has a higher price point.

“This incredible design from Grcic features a lozenge-shaped object in white Hirek technopolymer; the cut outs create a magnificent spatial dimension and lightness with the piece. Perfect as a bench or a large surface like a coffee table – and, it can be used outdoors!”

Stack Stool by Ruby Metzner and Sather Duke

This is perhaps one of the more expensive stools we’ve ever seen, but it’s such a great combination of colors that it’s easy to forget the price tag.

Seven simple silhouette turnings are stacked in alternating woods and colors to create elements that are both different and alike in each possible configuration.”

Materials: Scrap American Black Walnut, Oak, Poplar. Water-based low-VOC finish.
