Modern Furniture, Lighting, and Home Accessories

Always Authentic


  • With Spring Comes Patio

    Now is the time to start thinking about patio furniture. Ok, in some climates, all the time is the time to think about patio furniture... but we can't all be that lucky. Victoria has been sporting some cold temperatures during spring so far, but this weekend the sun has come out and summer looks close by.

    For mid-century modern lovers, bring your Eames and Nelson classics outdoors this season! Love them inside, love them out ... thanks to Herman Miller, these pieces are now available in finishes to take on the sun, wind and rain.




    The move to outdoor is actually a return to roots for the Eames Aluminum Group series. It was originally developed for outdoor use - designed specifically for the famous J. Irwin Miller's mid-century home. The outdoor weave fabric on the chairs come in four different tones, all perfectly chosen to compliment the graphite and white frame choices. As always with Herman Miller, these pieces are environmentally friendly, composed of 64% recycled materials and is 95% recyclable itself.



    The Nelson Pedestal Table comes in various sizes - two heights and two diameters to choose from. Much like the interior version, this makes it easy to exactly the table configuration that you need.

  • Eight Iconic Chairs That Help You Sit With Style - from Esquire Magazine

    Esquire Magazine's "The Big Black Book, Spring/Summer 2011" issue" boasts itself as "The Style Manual for Successful Men". Reading this, I was immediately reminded of the recent lighting and home design collaboration between Foscarini and Diesel fashion label, coined "Successful Living" (read our blog post on this collection, here). It seems that success is highly dependent on style - or so the fashion and design houses would suggest. In our business of some of the most iconic, stylish furniture and home accessories in the history of modern design... who are we to argue? ;)




    The magazine issue's index, after 9 pages of glossy dapper men sporting Gucci watches, Ascot Chang suits, and Hermes blousons lists "The Portfolios - How to put yourself together for wherever life takes you." Under Portfolio No. 2: "The Anti-Suit", is a one page article on selecting a stylish man chair. Titled "Take a Seat - Eight iconic chairs that help you sit with style", this article is reminiscent of a product page. I was pleased as punch to see that we offer every single one of the 8 chairs that Esquire features.
