• East Meets West, A Flying Carpet Sofa

    East Meets West, A Flying Carpet Sofa

    Sure, the East Meets West isn’t really a flying carpet.  Styled to accommodate seating for multiple people, however, this sofa’s flowing design sure evokes that feeling. Created by Tonio de Roover, the piece is one part living room furniture and one part sculptural object.  The actual seat area looks too protruded for its own good, so it looks more suited to lying down for a nap than sitting down to watch TV.  As a whimsical flying carpet in your living [...]

  • Steelcase Node Updates The Classroom Chair

    Steelcase Node Updates The Classroom Chair

    Modern classrooms need modern chairs.  That seems to be the motivation behind the Steelcase Node, which updates the classic school furnishing with a number of very useful additions. Forget Steelcase’s pitch about multiple modes of learning.  The design can, pretty much, speak for itself – a classroom chair with generous desk space, wheels and under-the-seat storage should easily make sitting through sleepy lectures leagues more tolerable. While compact enough for in-class use, the Steelcase Node doesn’t scrimp on the things [...]

  • Hollandia iCon Is An iPad-Friendly Luxury Bed

    Hollandia iCon Is An iPad-Friendly Luxury Bed

    As far as luxury beds go, the Hollandia iCon is only half-ridiculous.  Sure, the multimedia headboard with dual iPad docks border on the excessive, but the actual sleeping area looks swank. Made by Hollandia International and American mattress brand Therapedic, the bed uses Dual-Core 3D mattress technology, which allows either side of the bed to be adjusted separately.  The split mattress is made from Vita Talalay Latex, which is soft on the top and firm on the bottom, allowing you [...]

  • Throw Dirty Clothes Here: The Sacrificial Chair

    Throw Dirty Clothes Here: The Sacrificial Chair

    Clothes you take off but intend to wear later can’t go into the laundry bin because stuff there’s too dirty.  They can’t go back to the closet either, because you don’t want half-dirty stuff mixed up with the fresh items.  A spare chair usually plays the unofficial clothes rack for such in-betweens, and the Sacrificial Chair embraces that spirit completely. Created by Punga & Smith as an exhibition piece, it’s actually a rack clad in the shape of a chair.  [...]

    Pushcarts Can Be Mobile Offices Too: The Het Kruikantoor

    We’ve seen mobile offices dumped on the back of vans  before.  If you don’t have a spare vehicle to equip with a work area, however, a push-along office like the Het Kruikantoor just might do the trick. Created by designer Tim Vinke, the setup is essentially a desk, shelves and two chairs clad in the form of a modular wheelbarrow.  Slap them together like Lego blocks and you’ll end up with a pushcart (yes it has wheels on one corner) [...]

    HECMEC’s Eco-Furniture Uses Modular Paper Tubes

    How do you make children’s furniture eco-friendly?

Yes, they’ll remain useful even as your kids grow taller. Endowed with a modular design, the furniture can quickly be reconfigured for different heights by simply swapping out the tubes that make up the frame. For the chairs, you simply replace an outgrown tube with [...]

    Coney Island Line Of Furniture Uses Wood From Demolished Boardwalk

    Coney Island may no longer be the center of amusement attractions it once was. Regardless, it holds a special place in many of New Yorker’s hearts (including myself) and furniture company Uhuru is paying tribute by unveiling their Coney Island Line, a series of limited edition pieces inspired by the historic Brooklyn spot. More than adopting the former resort as basis for the design of the pieces, the company decided to use actual Ipe wood that’s been reclaimed from the [...]
