Since it’s been almost a year since we bought new furniture for our apartment, I thought I’d finally get around to shopping for the miscellaneous pieces we still need — a coffee table and an accent chair or two. This time instead of hitting the huge department stores, I thought I’d start out looking for something made by a real person. I still haven’t decided on anything, but I thought I’d share the shops that are at the top of my list:
Framework Design's "coffee" table (photo courtesy of Framework Design)
This stunning modern coffee table from Framework Design is as clever as it is beautiful. The indented squares spell out”coffee!” in braille.
- Lunar Lounge Design
Lunar Lounge Design, while mostly out of my price range, has a fantastic collection of mid-century modern tables and seating that owners Colin and Jonathan make to order. Love their innovative designs and fab color choices.
On the other end of the spectrum are these gorgeous natural wood tables from Michael Arras
. Each one is completely unique and custom made of organic oval discs finished with your choice of stain.
Revival Home Goods' Petite Paisley Chair
I’m also loving the fab recovered chairs over at Revival Home Goods
. Joan is an avid antique store shopper who finds pieces with great bones and gives them an update. I’m a sucker for all things paisly so this black chair is definately on the short list!
dust*furniture Crook and Cranny cabinet
Last but absolutely not least: dust*furniture
. Their complete disregard for the way furniture “should” be results in gorgeous pieces worthy of Dr. Seuss himself!
