1. Handwoven Swing Chair
Like the idea of snuggling up in a suspended seat with a book and a nice, hot cuppa on weekends? Make your dreams come true with this swing chair that’s handwoven from natural hemp by Indian craftsmen.
2. ‘Winsor’ Bohemian White Oak Bed
Taking inspiration from the classic Windsor chair, this white oak bedframe comes with the same iconic comb-like back, giving it a unique appearance that stands out from your typical berth.
3. ‘Note’ Multipurpose Clothing Rack with Mirror
If you prefer loose furnishings over custom built-ins, this multipurpose clothing rack from Mu Lin Home is something you’ll love. Aside from a nifty pull-out mirror, the ‘Note’ rack also features a pair of hanging rods (for your hats and threads) and even a cork board which you can pin keys and post-it notes on.
4. Natural Wood Circular Coffee Tables
What’s better than a single coffee table? A pair, of course. With their natural finish and pleasing forms, these rustic tables from Hancock Home will make a fine addition to any living room that’s in need of an organic accent piece or two.
5. ‘Miller’ Three-Seater Chaise Sofa
Featuring a minimal design that incorporates gentle curves and (ever-classic) thin pencil legs, the ‘Miller’ chaise deserves a place in any modernist’s living room. Depending on your preference, the accompanying lounge seat can also be configured to be placed on the left or right of the sofa.
6. ‘Sugar Cube’ Corner Cabinet with Shelves
Inspired by the cutesy, boxy forms of sugar cubes, this corner cabinet has a three-tiered shelf that’s perfect for storing magazines, notebooks and even your iPad. Meanwhile, tiny details, such as built-in wire clips and raised shelf edges (that keep your items from falling off), make this cabinet a thoughtfully sweet piece of furniture.
7. ‘Wave’ Cherry Wood Dining Chair
Blending natural beauty and craftsmanship, the ‘Wave’ dining chair brings something different to the dining room (or area) with its curved back that’s reminiscent of the rolling tide. Made by steam bending black cherry wood, this unique feature is designed with both style and comfort in mind.
8. ‘Charles’ Italian TV Console
Furniture retailer Coconordic places a strong focus on ‘beautiful practicality’ for all of its offerings, of which includes the ‘Charles’ TV console that features solid wood with an overlay of natural black cherry veneers. In a nutshell? Check out this classically handsome piece, even if you aren’t a fan of the mid-century modern look!
9. ‘Crema’ Minimalist Bedside Table
In need of some extra storage for your bedroom, but don’t have enough space for another built-in? The ‘Crema’ bedside table could just be the solution to your woes. This stylish add-on features a pair of shelves, dual drawers, and a (surprisingly cutesy) compact form that doesn’t chew up too much square footage.
10. Minimalist Series Platform Bed
Platform beds are great for compact homes because their low-to-the-ground design creates the illusion of a higher bedroom ceiling – and this one from Coconordic’s Minimalist series is no different. Pair it with the ‘Crema’ bedside table (as featured above) and you’ll get the perfect set-up for a small but mighty boudoir.
