13 Made-to-Last Pieces by a North Carolina Furniture Company You Should Know

Here on the Remodelista team, we’re often lamenting the rise of disposable furniture. In a time of mass production and throwaway culture, it’s hard to know how furniture is made, and whether a sofa will hold up over decades of sitting or whether it’ll start to sag—or, worse, collapse—after just a few years. Fortunately there are companies like Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams making furniture with a focus on superior craftsmanship and quality. Founded in the US in 1989 and based on 70 acres in Taylo...

DIY plywood chair with book storage

Laura Kampf made this cool looking plywood chair with a storage space for books. She says she'll upload plans for making one of your own soon. If you like videos of people making things, I highly recommend Laura's YouTube channel. She makes a new thing every week, such as a cargo bike, a bike trailer for her dog, and a solar food dehydrator. I don't know how she does it! Image: YouTube

Phillipe Starck’s Broom – A sustainable chair that swept away industrial waste like magic

Here is some food for thought – what if our leftovers could be turned to functional furniture that looked food? I mean good, that looked good! Phillipe Starck is a French designer which means he eats really good food and has managed to turn the leftovers into some really good chairs called the Broom for Emeco. Global food waste (aka leftovers) is twice as high as predicted reports CNN but leftovers don’t necessarily mean just food – it is any waste that ends up in the trash and the solution to...

This sustainable crib was made without using a single drop of fossil fuel

The challenge with designing the Fossil Free Crib wasn’t so much in the design, but was in researching the materials the crib would require. Almost every material available to designers today involves a fraction of fossil fuel… whether it’s crude oil used to make plastic or something as basic as the gasoline used in chainsaws that cut down trees. Ultimately, materials are transported from source to factory to consumer using petrol. Designing a crib is easy… designing a crib without using a sin...

2Merge Table by Prismatique

Prismatique’s stunning 2Merge table is named for the familiar traffic sign that suggests we play nice when driving on the highway. The table’s base is the reason for the name, as the angled Y of the legs recalls the trajectory described by the merge iconography. 2Merge’s stainless steel base is indeed unorthodox. It has a slightly off-kilter aesthetic that works wonders for stability. It’s also offset nicely by Prismatique’s line of ultra-thin tabletops. Top options in...

This maki roll-inspired chair is as fancy as the sushi you crave!

Nothing beats a plate of sushi, dipped in some soy with a pop of wasabi, according to me. It’s my all-time favorite food, and it’s quite exciting to see designers drawing inspiration from it!

Factory Visit: Italy’s Beloved Flexform Furniture

A glimpse at how the multi-generational, family-owned brand makes their sophisticated, strong yet supple pieces Flexform‘s furniture is angled but flexile, strong but supple, robust but comfortable, tenacious but delicate. These seemingly opposing traits work in perfect harmony through the Italian brand’s many creations. In fact, their philosophy—to combine comfort with sophisticated aesthetics—is within the name Flexform itself: a portmanteau of “flexible” and “form.” Founded …

This pill-shaped wardrobe comes with an mirror to give you instant escapism!

When you tell a child to draw a wardrobe, he will always make it in the shape of a rectangle. Even as an adult when I go out shopping for room furniture, I can say about 99% of the closets I see are rectangular. Orior made a simple switch to the shape and it’s got everyone thinking “Wow! I never imagined a pill-shaped wardrobe” which just goes to show how conditioned we are to live within the walls (or doors) or what we know. But Orior decided to shatter the notions of regular expectations by ad...
