The comfortable black leather upholstery is in contrast to the hard exterior. The chair is designed as a focal point in a contemporary interior. The colors and materials are based on pure indulgence and luxury for the consumer. The P38 chair design by Owen Edwards is available for $6,340.
The colors used and the neutral black and white. White on the exterior and black on the interior. A very nice and elegant combination. The curved shape is also very interesting and different. It would perfectly integrate in a contemporary home or even in a very modern office. It’s a very successful combination of looks and comfort. A piece that won’t get away unnoticed. Hopefully there will be more furniture pieces like this one, because it’s not that easy to match this chair with anything else that is not designed in the same style or colors or that doesn’t incorporate the same shapes and forms.
Modern sofas come in many types. People choose sofas depending on their designs, materials, and even prices. The ‘Capsule Collection’ has been exclusively designed for Deadgood by the company‘s directors Ziglam & Brook.
The Capsule Collection consists of a single or two-person sofa and a kick stool (- Chair: 685(h) x 1050(w) x 900(d);- 2 Seater Sofa: 685(h) x 1800(w) x 900(d); – 3 Seater Sofa: 685(h) x 2400(w) x 900(d).).

The Ebano collection by designer Marco Pisati, for the Italian Il Bagno BandiniThe Ebano is composed only from furniture and accessories for bathroom with wood effect. I say wood effect, because all components are actually made of stone called Rainwood stone and as the Bandini site reveals Ebano is, “a washbasin with linear and squared external forms; internally the soft curvature of the hole is designed to enhance the wonderful vein of the stone that recalls for color and form the essence of wood.”
It’s a good thing they are not actually made of wood because it would have been a disaster in the bathroom. However a lot of people appreciate wood pieces and they like to include them as much as possible in their homes. So when it comes to bathroom furniture they get disappointed because they have to choose something else, more appropriate.
Now they don’t have to, thanks to this ingenious collection. The wood effect would make the owner happy and the stone used in the fabrication will ensure a resilient and water-resistant piece.
