10 Easy Pieces: The Perfect High-End Luxury Sofa

At Remodelista, we often feature sofa designs that are economical to mid-range in price, but for readers in search of a truly luxury sofa, we decided to cover our bases (plus, one can dream). There are sofas past and present that are priced upward of $60K, but in our book, expense alone does not merit quality. This roundup includes our most-dreamed-of luxury sofas, and while none of them are $60K, all tend to ring in above the $8K mark. Above: New York City atelier Dimitry & Co. designs some ...

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 ...

Design Miami 2018: Dommus Suite by Joseph Walsh

The Dommus Suite of sculptural furniture by Joseph Walsh is now on view at Design Miami 2018 at the Sarah Myerscough Gallery booth. Joseph Walsh, who is a self-taught designer from County Cork, Ireland, focuses on one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces. To call his work furniture is reductive at best. Although Walsh’s pieces offer functionality and attention to craft, they are more akin to works of art. With spellbinding sinuous lines and captivating areas of empty space, Dommus Suite transce...

Designer Profile: Patrick Norguet

Discussion of acclaimed designer Patrick Norguet necessarily begins with the Rainbow Chair. This multi-colored celebration of acrylic resin was not only Norguet’s entree into notoriety, but also a nice embodiment of his obsession with drawing and graphical representation. As he states in his bio, “Since childhood, I have preferred sketchbooks to textbooks, filling them up with sketches and drawings.” Norguet’s “hands-on” approach doubtless led to the inspiration for Rainbow, which is made of acr...

YD Talks: The Making of SPUN, the most exhilarating chair in the world

I remember the very first time I walked into a Herman Miller outlet. I walked right past the Aeron chair, Yves Behar’s SAYL chair, and even probably the most iconic thing in the room… the Eames Lounge Chair. I walked past all these hallmarks of great industrial design, because I had my eyes affixed on the most interesting object in the room. I say object because you couldn’t really call it a chair. It was an experience. It was the Spun.“There was no intention to design a chair”, says Thomas He...

The SHO is two chairs made of two parts

Practically a hallmark of simplicity and effectiveness, the Sho is made of literally two parts. A frame and a mattress. However, it can exist in three states. As a bed (with the mattress used as-is), as a comfortable chair, and as a reclining lounge chair.The SHO works well as instant furniture, be it in low-cost apartments, or at disaster relief sites. The metal framework is foldable, and when opened out, allows you to tuck the mattress into it, turning it either into a comfortable chair with a...

Building a custom kitchen banquette and table

Jo and I recently completed an amazing kitchen renovation for her parents, and as part of it, we built them new custom banquette seating and a variation on a farmhouse table. The transformation from their old eating area to the new was astounding. I mean, just look at what they had before! Building the banquette was a custom job all the way. Because every space is different, and every family has different seating needs, I’m not going to be able to give you complete step-by-step banquette b...

Wood and Wool Winsomeness

After daydreaming about the idea for over a year and even more time spent in 3D shape exploration, designer Magnus Skogsfjord has finally landed on the sleek seating design you see today. Its lines and dimensions take inspiration from a standing diamond with a ratio of 6:5 which is precisely how it has earned the namesake Adamantem (Latin for diamond).The resulting aesthetic is at once complex and coherent, with its various elements each telling a different story while coming together as one. F...

Anxiety Vs. Aesthetics

When I’m putting together my own place, I have a few rules I tend to stick by, and one of those is to avoid any furniture designs or placements that might cause anxiety. For instance, I don’t hang any artwork above my bed because I believe it causes subconscious fear that it might fall during sleep (call me crazy, but I do live in an earthquake prone area!). Another example is no glass coffee tables because I like to avoid the stress of slamming anything down too hard or, heaven forbid, taking a...
