Breeze Cabinet

First, I apologize for posting something pretty pricy. Second, how great is this thing?

And now I have a Haiku for you. Well, it’s not exactly a Haiku, but if a product description ever sounded like a Haiku without actually being one, then this would be it:

“A little wave moved by a light breeze. A little wave that implies the handle of a fold down door. The shape is pure – not a technical component in sight. Behind the door: three open sections, seperated by vertical dividers. Made in MDF, door in plywood. Two widths, two heights. Aluminum base comes in two heights. The white cabinet has a blue inside panel behind the handle, all other versions have a white one.”

Cabinet dimensions without feet: 14.5″H x 22-24″D

Bent Plywood Single Feeder

I really like this pet dish. You’ve seen the dual dish before but they’ve just recently released the single feeder which is a slightly more economical choice for those of us with discerning tastes who are also on a budget.

“The Bent Plywood Feeders hold dishwasher-safe stainless steel bowls in a platform that’s raised, which encourages digestive health benefits believed to be associated with elevated feeders. Each layer of plywood is bonded electronically in a high-pressure mold with water- and temperature-resistant resins. Three heights are available to fit animals of different sizes.”

Semplice Bed

If you’ve been looking for a simple platform bed, but haven’t fell in love with anything yet, take a second look at this one. It has excellent proportions (just the right amount of thickness around the edges) and a lovely semi-subtle grain. I’ve got a hunch it might be of better quality than some of the other platform beds in the same price range kicking around out there…

“Veneered in either wenge-stained oak or in Ovangkol, a West African hardwood with a moderately course grain, the rich colors of this bed coordinates with a variety of other woods. All sides are finished and the frame stands 12″ off the ground, higher than many platform beds, for a visually bolder profile. The recessed legs each have a metal plate at the bottom to further the floating look that’s become a trademark of Novati’s designs. The deck is constructed of wood slats woven together with nylon strips for a combination of assured suppleness and enduring strength. ”

Ovangkol veneer or wenge-stained oak veneer; MDF; aluminum.

Jellyfish Chair and Ottoman

This is not a bad price for outdoor furniture, especially to have the chair and ottoman included in one price.

“Architect Wiel Arets calls Jellyfish (2005) a ‘modern reclining lounger’ because of how its gently shaped base gives it a relaxing, subtle movement. The result is a dynamic seating experience in which the sitter, chair and environment all interact. This was the goal of the designer, who wanted a lounge chair that encouraged active use, while also bringing a clean, straightforward aesthetic to its surroundings. A handy sidekick to the chair is the Jellyfish Ottoman that can be used as a footrest or for holding drinks. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, Jellyfish is UV stable and has a weight resistance of 350lbs.”

Anna Loveseat

I thought this was noteworthy because it is extremely affordable. Also, the upholstery is felted wool and not some of the cheaper upholstery you might expect on an economical choice such as the Anna Loveseat.

“Anna is an enigma, part dramatic, part pragmatic yet fully sophisticated. Sleek, urban design features a low profile that surrounds you with dense foam cushions and soft felted wool. Attached cushions. Durable hardwood frames with chrome legs.”
