I was fishing around on the internet and came across this amazing sideboard made in Canada by Treco which led me to the blog of Pedro Silmon. I landed on a page full of amazing auction photos and listings. I have seen some of these pieces before but some of them were completely new to me. That first picture and credenza is amazing, like Raymond Loewy meets Danish. I think I need one of those.

I recently came across the site of Sign Tokyo and was very impressed with their Jean Prouvé exhibits. I know some people absolutely love the work of Prouvé, I myself like quite a bit of his work but “love” might be stretch for me. Some of the pieces seen here are pretty fantastic. I actually really enjoy some of the architectural elements that Prouvé designed. The doors with the port holes are stunning. No doubt museum quality exhibits found here.
These artistic furnishings by McCollin Bryan make use of some really nice materials. My favorite has to be the Lunar Table (first and third pic), the brass combined with the dark blue resin is an amazing combination not only in color but materials as well. At first I thought these resin tops were glass but they are a high polished resin. The combination of colors and base materials could be limitless. Some of his concrete work caught my attention as well. I believe that most of these pieces are in limited editions which make them very unique pieces of art.
The Jalousie sideboard by Hekla is one amazing looking pieces of furniture. I love the sliding brass doors on this. I would imagine it would be perfect for electronics, not only for the remotes but airflow and cooling. The scale of the piece is nice but of course I would have to have it in walnut with brass doors. Hekla has some other nice projects including other furniture designs.
While looking through the work of Noon Studio there were two modern tables that stood out to me. The Impact table has the amazing white sculpted concrete top with a crater like element for keeping things in place. The table has such a great sculptured quality to it. The other table has an opposite feel as it seems to be more constructed. The Tripod Side Table is supported with a cantilevering tripod leg system. I love the idea that the pieces of the table work together without any convention glueing or nailing.
I was very taken back with this minimal shelving system by Amuneal. Taken back in a good way, this shelving system is absolutely stunning in every way. The materials chosen are perfect. The beauty is in the details. The minimal approach to the design is so nice, I would almost be nervous to put too much on them as I would loose the beauty with clutter. LOVE!
