A Homegrown Chair

(If by home you mean a lab, and if by grown you mean 3D-printed.) After the designers at Budmen Industries created their own 3D printer, dubbed the Budmen Builder, they decided to have a little fun. The result is a chair that balances form and function, fabrication and furniture. The result is Resolute.Developed using CAD software, the Resolute chair is adapted for aesthetics yet sturdy enough to support a person weighing more than 250 lbs. Modern in composition yet organic in shape, the design ...

Hands-On With Schumacher Fabrics

Why everything we thought we knew about reupholstering was wrong What happens when you combine hand-me-down furniture and traditional fabrics with one of NYC’s best-loved designers? The answer is two reinvented chairs that stay true to their roots. The pleasantly surprising path to these old-meets-new results started with a practical and common enough scenario: furniture that badly needed reupholstering. Like many who undertake their own home …

Top 25 Furniture Designs from 2018

Furniture hasn’t radically changed much in the last decade, leave alone the year. It’s one of those essentials that’s more or less untouched by technology… so furniture design doesn’t “advance”, per se. However, there’s always a new idea, material, aesthetic, or scenario waiting around the corner. From seating designed to make you healthier, to facades that also integrate plants into them, to furniture from repurposed car parts, to probably the very definition of innovation and creativity, Nick ...

A Rollable Desk for The Ever-Changing Workplace!

This pure porcelain side-table gives the illusion of fabric

A Gold Winner of the German Design Award this year, the Plisago side tables by Studio Besau-Marguerre showcase an unusual choice of material coupled with an aesthetic that isn’t common to the material either. It’s a confusingly attractive combination that makes your eyes question what they’re seeing before your hands touch them to confirm your guess, while you, all along, admire its strange beauty. The Plisago side tables come made from porcelain, a material that’s completely alien to the domain...

A Table That Gives Sculptures A Run for Their Money!

We think that the Pinji table is closer to being an item of fine art than a side table, and would be even more suited in a gallery than it is within the home… and that’s why we love it! The off-centered base provides the design with a wonderful sense of unbalance, creating an aspect of suspense that makes the design an attention-stealer! And we know what you’re thinking, ‘That it just makes it easier to knock over’, right? Wrong. That has been considered and the center of gravity has been moved ...

Rethinking the Coat Rack

It might seem a bit silly at first glance, but once you’re aware of its functionality, the Brush coat rack makes perfect, simple sense. Crafted from raw wood and boar’s hair, the design works much in the same way as a traditional coat rack or clothes hanger you’d see in any entryway. What sets it apart, however, is the removable “branches” with a brush features that can be used to clean and dust clothes. They’ll gently remove water, snow, leaves, and other debris so you’re favorite jackets and c...

South Africa’s Southern Guild at NYC’s The Salon Art + Design

Cape Town‘s Southern Guild was the only African design representative at NYC’s high-end showcase, The Salon Art + Design in mid-November. And, as Lynsey Chutel points out for Quartz, the gallery presented furniture that “punctured the outdated image the west has of an African aesthetic.” Southern Guild makes clear that it’s important African design maintains attention—and a competitive edge—on a fickle global design stage. Further, the …

Furniture for Furballs

The latest in a trend of feline-inspired furnishings, the “THEN” side table set doubles as a cozy place your cat will love.

A built-in opening at the top allows cats to perch up and keep an eye on things or interact with their owner who’s lounging nearby. It’s also great for small spaces that don’t have the real estate for a large cat dome.Designer: RuiQiong...

When Concrete and Glass Created an Ocean

New Zealander Ben Young’s forte is hand sculpting clear sheets of float glass and different solid materials like concrete and steel. His works are inspired by oceans and seas; and their relationship to land.Each of Young’s sculptural works are hand drawn, hand cut and handcrafted from clear sheet float glass, then laminated layer upon layer to create the final form. He constructs models, draws templates, makes custom jigs and then cuts the layers with a glazier’s hand-tool. The complexity comes ...

Le mobilier brassé par Franck Grossel

Un plaisir de retrouver ce matin le jeune designer français Franck Grossel, remarqué pour ses projets Five et Oneshot. En véritable touche à tout, il présente une nouvelle collection de mobilier original baptisé Mobilier brassé. Un adjectif qui fera certainement lever quelques oreilles !
