The Around Table by Muuto; Available in 6 colors !

Around has a modern and unique identity, but the materials and craftsmanship express traditional Scandinavian design values. The shape and frame make the Around tables functional and elegant, and simultaneously give the table a warm and welcoming appearance. Both coffee tables work well on their own or in groups of two, three or more.

So beautiful and unique… another great design straight from Scandinavia!

In Light of the Holiday…

picturesHappy St. Patricks Day! We hope that you are all out enjoying green beer/participating in various St. Patty’s day events. Here are some of our favorite green designs, some from us and some from companies we don’t know yet (but hopefully will, one-of-these-days).

1. Bulb Pendent by Ameico Lighting ($175). Yes, yes, the first product on the list is the only one we carry in this picture. They’re pretty great though, so it seems justified. I’d group these together in a line over the coffee table. Simple enough. But the outer glass shell adds a unique twist, and it comes in a Mega Bulb ($285), too.

2. Urbio. These ones are hard to price, they start at $75 for a small package, or you can buy all of the pieces separately and kind of make shift your own. The coolest part about these? You can buy larger planters, small planters, all in various sizes and shapes, and they can be moved around on the magnetic pallets. So add tons of plants (or dont), but they look pretty cool on a large wall. I myself have some on my roof, and I love em.

3. TeleTable Glass Occasional Tables by Umbra ($70). Cheap, and will definitely modern-up your space a bit. We love this with the slab coffee table and modern decor.

4. Acacia Slab Coffee Table ($1000). Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of information about this table, but it’s beautiful, and really ties this design together.   

5. &  6. We layered these rugs together to bring a little pattern and texture in. The Contempo Trellis Rug by Nuloom brings in some pattern, while the Flokati Rug by Safavieh is a shag-style rug made entirely of leather strips. The color in the Flokati rug is similar to the beige color in the Trellis rug, keeping the layered effect from being too jarring.

     7. Teak Chairs/Bench by Robert Tiffany. What we (really, really) love about these chairs are the variations available. Put a pair of them on one side and a bench on the other, just a few chairs, just a bench, whatever.

8. Last but not least, the Light Green Sofa by Cassina. We chose a down-filled sofa for a comfier loft-type feel. The great thing about these cushy sofas is they can easily be moderned-up or moderned-down (if you will), and are so versatile, they’ll fit in anywhere. Maybe this green one wont, but you get what I mean.

Urban Living is up and running. And be sure to check back with us frequently, as we have countless new products being added by the hour!

My Friday Favorite

I’ve been referring back to this picture so much over the last few weeks, this is the perfect example of what I would want in my place. The tufted leather chair has a classic beauty that coincides perfectly with the gray shag rug and hanging glass bulb. The wood nesting tables, vintage frames, and natural light add warmth to this space… so beautiful and inviting, who wouldn’t want this in their home?
