BKLYN Designs: Vexell

This Sunday, I attended BKLYN Designs in the Dumbo Neighborhood of Brooklyn and was impressed with the level of craft by the offerings. Over the next few days, I hope to feature a few of the most exciting small companies I observed. Today, I’d like to mention Vexell. Vexell’s furniture, as was the case of [...]

Doc System Furniture a Genius Idea for Small Spaces

This has to be one of the most useful pieces of furniture I’ve seen in a long while. It’s called the Doc System, and it folds from a sofa into a bunk bed. I’m, of course, being heavily biased because of the recent arrival of my first child. Here’s the deal, my wife and I [...]

Blow Lounge Chair by Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen

The first time I saw the Blow Lounge Chair by Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen for HAY, I thought they called it the Blow Lounge Chair because this chair was so sexy that brothels would be ordering this for certain lude acts implied in the name. Of course, my dirty mind completely overlooked that this chair, in [...]

This Table Will Self-Destruct from Studio 1a.m.

"This table will self-destruct. The top of the table is structured as a grid of concrete pixels. Each time a new table is produced, one pixel is removed from the design. Following these rules of self-destruction, the shape becomes more intricate as it diminishes. This project converges elements of mass production and handmade craftsmanship, resulting [...]

Loft Changer by Netto Collection: The Killer App For New Parents

From time to time, I like to feature some products from my sponsors, and 2Modern’s stuff is just so good to resist. I’ve personally focused on browsing the awesome selection of baby furniture and accessories because my wife and I are weeks away from having our first child. And what could be more perfect than [...]

The Symphony Bench by OFS

OFS is a stodgy, boring, but also very capable furniture manufacturer based in the heart of the U.S., Huntingburg Indiana. It’s like one of those companies that is probably a Bershire Hathaway company. It’s deeply seeded in it’s all bread and butter, go to church on Sundays, have a night out at the movies with [...]

Gandia Blasco Day Bed

The day bed by Gandia Blasco is something that I dream is owned by billionaire sultans with good taste. It reflects a lifestyle of year round beach weather on breezy North African coast. Inhabiting this furniture are sexy young things in white linen pants and skirts drinking mojitos to cool themselves off while the thump [...]

Oragami Table by Anthony Dickens and Tony Wilson

The Oragami Table is a pretty amazing piece of design and quite possibly the only table I’ve written about that I really, really want to own. Each table consists of three legs that interlock together to form the structure. The glass table top is put into place, and there you are. Assembly of this table [...]

The Maku Limited Edition Lounge Chair

Let me start by saying that we’ve been getting a lot of submissions for the site. Please, keep them coming! I don’t put everything up, but some of the design that people send me is pretty darn cool.  Kind of like the LE Lounge Chair by Maku. I could not get quite the picture I [...]

Gyanze Amp and Speakers

I now issue the challenge for today: if you know any possible way to buy these mythical iPod speakers, then let me know. I honestly doubt that these speakers exist. I’ve even read about them in magazines (our print friend who supposedly checks facts) and still I can’t find these speakers anywhere. So what’s the [...]
