Solid Wood Chair by Hans J. Wegner

When it comes to furniture, the classics are always something to be inspired by but also to look forward to for your creation. There are many impressive figures that have become legends. One of them is Hans J. Wegner, the undisputed master of Danish chair design. He designed pieces such as the Wishbone Chair, the Wegner Wing Chair or Shell Chair. The CH33 Chair is another one of his beautiful creations.

This chair is a classic. It has been originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1956 and has become an inspiration for many other creations even since. Recently it has been reborn and has begun to be produced once again. It is currently manufactured under license in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son. The chair has a very simple but very chic design. It impresses with its sturdy and yet so delicate shape and design.

Ingenious wood poufs

Norway and Scandinavia in general, has almost all of the territory covered in forests. With such an environment it is very easy to adapt your way of life according to the terrain, because there isn’t much of a choice.People living in those areas learned with the years how to make the most of their natural environment and how to live in harmony with it. They have beautiful houses made from the wood that grows in abundance everywhere and very often you will find houses that are up to 90% percent wood.

If you are not that lucky to live around thick vegetation and you are a nature lover and want to bring it as much as possible closer to you, you can’t. But there is a more comfortable alternative: how would you like to see in your living room something that looks perfectly like a tree log but isn’t a real tree log?

A company from Norway thought of making “wooden” poufs that can be used as a sitting stool, coffee table, side table or as a ottoman. This ingenious method of making replicas after real natural things is possible with modern technologies and some recycled polyester. After the shape is completed everything is covered up with a photo wood stump print. It is kind of fun to have something like that in your living room and also very easy to maintain and clean because the pouf cover can be very easily taken off through a zipper and washed.The company produces these poufs in two models: one taller in tall slender birch and one lower and a bit larger in pine.Available for 260$.

Vintage Leather Abbott Sofa

If you want a vintage décor for your living room the easiest way is to start with the sofa. It’s the most important piece of furniture from the room, followed by the wall unit and the coffee table. A vintage sofa can set the tone for the whole décor. There are many beautiful models to choose from and one of them is the Abbott Sofa.

The Abbott Sofa features a strong and sturdy construction. It’s crafted with a wooden frame that is entirely hidden under the upholstery. It has a chestnut finish and the only visible parts are the feet, which are small and short. The sofa is upholstered in cigar leather and has vintage details with antique brass nail heads that give it an even more persistent vintage charm. The overall dimensions of the sofa are 84″W x 34″D x 28″H. the seat height is 17.5’’, seat depth is 24’’ and arm height is 28’’.

And since the style is vintage, this means that the more you use the sofa, the more beautiful and vintage the leather will look. However, there are some things to consider. For example, keep the sofa out of direct sunlight because it will damage the upholstery. Also, avoid using detergents, polishes or saddle soap for the same reasons. You can keep it clean by using a soft cloth dampened with distilled water or you can simply vacuum it.Available for 3,160$.

The Orbit Stool With Storage by Snapp

The design team from Snapp has created a stool like no other. When you look at it from a certain angle it’s not that special. But it has a design that hides several secrets. One of them is the slim vertical compartment on the side. It’s a features designed for storing magazines or books. It’ a very nice detail, considering that many of us enjoy reading either a book or a magazine while relaxing but have a hard time finding a good place to store it when something else comes up.

But the side compartment is not the only interesting detail about this stool. The name of the stool actually gives us a hint related to the other original feature. It has something to do with the base. The Orbit stool features a slightly pointed cork base which allows it to rotate on its spinning axis and allows the user to wiggle the stool as he wants. It’s an interesting detail. It came as a response to the tic we all seem to have, that of moving back and forth or any other direction when sitting on a stool or chair.

The Multifunctional Tre Stool

One way of making a piece of furniture versatile is to give it a simple, neutral design. This works all the time. But there’s also another way. This option involves the creation of a multifunctional piece of furniture that could allow it to be useful in several different situations and environments. One such example is this tre stool.The stool can be used both as a desk and a bar stool. It’s just as useful in both situations.

Usually, desk stools, mainly those used in offices, have a design that doesn’t really allow them to be sued anywhere else. But this time the designer of this stool managed to combine some of the characteristics of a desk stool with those of a bar stool and this was the result. The style chosen for it is a mix of vintage and industrial.
