I walked by a furniture store in San Francisco yesterday and this giant green thing caught my eye. I walked in and simply asked “What is this?” “A lounge chair, the lady replied, very matter of fact!” Ah! Kyle who was traveling with me, immediately proceeded to fall into it. Can’t remember the last time a piece of furniture made me laugh this much. Pratone was designed in 1971 and is sold by Gufram.
This modular furniture system is beautiful. It’s also light and eco-friendly. What’s not to love?
The length of the Roll-Out Table can be adjusted by sliding the end out and letting the tabletop follow, while the steel crank on the side is used to retract the length. Totally wish listing this one!
The Ollie Chair unfurls with a flourish and retracts instantly with the pull of a string. It’s a versatile seat for homes and businesses, inside and outdoors. Absolutely beautiful!
Wow! Finally an height adjustable standing desk that is actually beautiful to look at when at its lowest position.
Update: The desk is no longer on West Elm’s website.
Sticotti is a beautiful, modular wooden bookshelf, sustainably made in Argentina. I love everything about this Kickstarter project.
I love the flexibility and playfulness that comes with modular furniture. This sofa, called Box Hyperactive caught my eye. My kids would totally approve and constantly rearrange our living room. Love the fact that Hannabi sofas are unique so the width and depth of each is tailored to the customer. Every element fits together but can be separated so they can form many different arrangements.
This Leaning Wooden Bench by Studio Izabela Boloz made me look. Always fond of everyday objects that playfully challenge gravity.
Liking this new sliding door cabinet by IKEA. (I’d totally change the color of the sliding doors, but loving the shape)
This beautiful paper screen by Yasutoshi Mifune can be changed to various shapes and sizes depending on how you assemble the modular pieces of paper.
This is the kids room of my dreams. Minimal and functional and with a cozy cave-like-bed-area. YES!
Absolutely loving this minimal media console by Los Angeles based furniture designer, Ben Hopkins. Two swissmiss thumbs up!
Italian designer Paolo Cappello created this modern music cabinet called ‘Caruso‘. Reminds me of the old TVs from back in the days…
The Sacrificial Chair is designed to replace ‘that chair’ in your bedroom that is constantly covered in clothes. Made me smile.
I get very excited when furniture is multi functional: The Flop chair looks comfortable and spacious, and it can be easily turned into a functional twin bed. And as a bonus feature, all the guest bed paraphernalia (pillows, comforters, and sheets) can be stored right inside the chair. So good!
Table for Two is a clever desk/dining table design by Daniel Liss.
