Halo Chair

What’s not to love about this vibrant, colorful, innovative chair? The Halo Chair, designed by Michael Sodeau, has so many amazing attributes. First, it’s playful. From the back, all that’s revealed is a convex circle with three thin tubular legs. As you walk around, the concave seat invites you to relax, cradled by comfort, and supported by the stability of the legs that form a triangle. Two diagonal tube braces connect the concave side of the back to the seat. The curvaceous surfaces toy with light and add to the chair’s dynamics. Continue reading

Ayers Cork

I’m obsessed with every quality of natural cork. Its malleability, texture, softness, history, and sustainability make it very desirable. Add to that its luxurious feel, durability, and natural ability to resist mold and fire and sustain ancient cork forests and the workers that maintain them, and I dare you not to covet cork. In every form from flooring to counters, its benefits have been proven as timeless, practical, and beautiful. Yet Albertina Oliveira has elevated cork to a previously unattained height.
