Solid Wood Stools by Karim Rashid for Riva1920

Riva 1920 is passionate about working with solid wood – so it’s no wonder that the Fiore and Delta stools designed by Karim Rashid were quickly swept up by the brand. Both stools are fun and unconventional with loads of personality. Both are made from solid cedar wood. Fiore clearly resembles a flower, each outer unit reminding us of a petal. Delta can remind us of many things, one being change due to its random shape, another could it be its vague reference to triangles or maybe a split of some kind, if we’re considering its name, that is. Either way, these stools boast highly original designs. They make great accent pieces that are not only good for sitting on, but that could also warm a space and instill intrigue. Find out more at Riva1920.

Colorful Renovation Of An Old Folding Chair

Old things shouldn’t be wasted and thrown away if you can give them a second life. To renovate a usual folding chair you’ll need a screwdriver, drop cloth, spray paint (2 cans per chair), fabric, scissors, a staple gun and staples. Remove the seat and place chair on drop cloth and wipe down with damp towel. Apply two coats of spray paint and let it dry overnight. Lay out new fabric and place seat cushion face down. Trace fabric along the cushion, cut and attach it using your staple gun. As the chair dries, put the new cushion and begin using!

Eco Friendly Furniture by Flohr Design

 

Flohr Design makes some stylish furniture and interior products using a unique eco friendly material. It all started when Christian Reder planted some Sakhalin knotweed in his yard. The stuff grows like weeds, with tall shoots with luscious leaves. In order to keep it from soon taking over the whole yard, he had to cut a lot of it away but felt terrible about burning the tubular shoots, which happened to be very light but incredibly strong. Some experimentation led him to develop a unique material. He embedded the shoots into a mixture of cold glue and wood flour and now calls it Flohr. Looking closely at the furniture, you can see the cross sectioned material, which reveals an interesting perforated texture and pattern – giving the pieces a very unique look. And since the material has such a short regrowth period, it makes it a perfectly sustainable and eco friendly solution for furniture and other interior products. Fun stuff!

Quirky Chair Design by 56th Studio

 

Wether you like this quirky chair design by 56th Studio or not, you can’t deny that it stirs some sort of emotional reaction. In that sense, they could be equated to art that can be sat upon. 56th Studio is a multidisciplinary design studio, involved in graphic, product, prop and set design, to name a few. They describe their style as “luxe-personified yet kitschy, neo-ethnic, eclectically bold and youthful”. We like these chair designs because they are surprising and different. Given that most of the chairs seem to have somewhat of a face, it seems they have their own personalities. The goal at 56th Studio is to create designs that are not only functional but that also communicate something. What are these chairs saying to you? Visit 56th Studio for more fun.
