If you're in the market for a classic chair - now is the time. DWR is having their Knoll sale with 15% off and free shipping.

These are nice and come in varying sizes (depending on the vastness of your wine collection).
"Modern Cellar was formed in 2005 by an emerging wine enthusiast and an expert craftsman, Tim Krablin who discovered modern wine furnishings for wine enthusiasts were not easily found."
I love these handmade poufs and they are currently on sale at DWR. Still pricey, but if you're in the market for an ottoman or side table or floor cushion...
Oh, look at me with my sensational, ambiguous headline. It's the classic Saarinen Womb Chair now 15% off at DWR. As the name suggests, this is a very comfy, snuggly chair.
Nice items available through the Heal's Furniture (UK).
E15 was founded
in 1995 in London by architect Philipp Mainzer and product designer
Florian Asche. Today the company has its headquarters in Germany,
Oberursel near Frankfurt. Love their modern, simple wood furniture.
Every home needs a stool. For the desk, the kitchen, as an ottoman or side table. Very versatile. Below is the draftsman stool, twisted stool, and vintage stool from Wisteria.
I am drooling over this Libreria Prologo with detachable bookshelves in walnut. Stainless steel parts and accessories with leather by Jaime Tresserra. Showrooms in Barcelona and Paris (a little ways away from me), but the website has more info if you need it.
A Life's Design pointed out today how many industrial antiques are being used in interior design now. The best place I've seen for these types of items is 1st dibs (beware: you will spend your entire day perusing this site). Below are some photos from the above posting, plus a cool industrial cart and nightstands/cabinets from 1st dibs.
Danny Kuo's StairCASE is designed for the average height person. Can't reach the top? Pull our the bottom bookshelves and they become a stepping stool.
Dave Seoane's handmade custom furniture and fixtures are built with three things: wood, steel and color. His studio and small and controlled and his pieces are build well so they can be enjoyed not only now, but for generations to come. Based in Portland, Dave works with large and small residential and collaborative commercial projects.
I hope my little collector never sees this one...available for a very hefty price tag at Vivre, this amethyst table lamp has already appeared in not one, but two decor magazines. Very chic.
Yes, the name is funny, but the table is pretty cool and would be perfect in a small space. This ash wood table has 4 hidden chairs and the table itself can broken down to a total of 6 pieces so it can fit through smallish doors. The designer, Brian Lee, hails from Minneapolis.
In this age of penny pinching and plunging stock prices, I think it's appropriate to check out this little gem. A little while ago IKEA presented a 1700 square foot dream home at the California Home & Garden Show in Anaheim. It's 100% all IKEA products and cost a little under $50,000 to outfit the entire home. The price tag also included all large appliances such as refrigerator, oven, etc. Pretty amazing. Gotta love IKEA.
I love to browse on Hudson Furniture's website. I drool over all the beautiful pieces. Here are some of their end tables including the birch pedestal, walnut stick, manhattan end table, nesting tables and the organic teak cube.
This gorgeous french walnut sofa from Hudson Furniture has plenty of room for you to stretch out (94.5") and can be fully customized. Love this. So pretty.
Found a bookshelf blog called...well, Bookshelf. Lots of great photos of every conceivable type of bookshelf! A good resource if you're in the market for some spaces to store your books. Here are a few photos from the site:
I know a few people who would love this. Designed by Spazio Rossana Orlandi and debuted in Milan in 2006.
Created by French designer Stephanie Marin and available in both indoor and outdoor versions. Very unusual...like a modern beanbag.
I've always liked the look of Hudson Furniture. From their website:
"None of the woods we use are harvested from old growth forests. Our wood slabs are domestically sourced from either salvaged trees or wind/storm damaged trees. The trees have an average life span of 250-300 years. When these trees die, they gradually do so from the crest to the roots. The farmers or the tree owners thus have to remove these trees as they might cause damage to houses, other trees or outlying areas. We integrate various wood species into our designs to produce unique works of art."
A really smart and affordable way to organize all those magazines that pile up! This would be great for a doctor's office. The solid wood table is designed by Satina Turner for $158 and available here.
Flocks Pouf, available at DWR is pretty cool. Could be a fun ottoman or funky side table.
Using extra-large knitting needles produced specifically for her enterprise, Christien Meindertsma's Flocks Pouf (2006) is hand knit using strong wool from New Zealand crossbred sheep. The pouf is available in two sizes (medium: light grey, large: dark grey) to accommodate use as a seat, occasional table, ottoman or even as a purely organic sculpture. As a testament to Mother Nature (who we know can't be rushed) and the few craftspeople who know how to knit at this scale, the Flocks Pouf will not be in stock until early January, 2008. However, a Flocks gift card and wool swatch will be sent in the meantime for each order. Hand knit in the Netherlands.
