Joe Joe Built It

I'm always on the lookout for great modern furniture built by small shop in the USA. The latest to hit my radar is Joe Joe Built It. They've got all sorts of FSC certified modern wood goodies, all at very reasonable prices considering what goes into making them.  Speaking of which, check out the video by LetsMakeMedia after the jump that shows a little of the process.

Joseph Walsh Furniture

prism round tableMy friend on Facebook recently brought the work of Joseph Walsh to my attention. Much of his work is very organic and perhaps a bit too ornate looking for my taste, but the repeating geometric patterns of this Prism Round dining table appealed to my cold hard modernist heart. Not only is the design absolutely gorgeous, I have a huge amount of respect for the skill that went into pulling those joints off. I've recently been working on a project that has a similar leg design, and I can tell you it's not easy.

Emmerson Dining Table

emmerson table and benchWhy yes, I am still obsessing over farmhouse tables in modern settings. Thanks you for noticing. Last night while flipping though the new West Elm catalogue I spotted this fantastic Emmerson table made from reclaimed shipping pallets. First off, I would love to get my hands on some of those pallets, second this is a fabulous table for the money. I love that it just has a simple wax finish on it too.

Simple Modern Dining :: West Elm

I know, I know. Another West Elm post! But I'm telling you, this new catalog is blowing my mind. For realz. Just today, I was flipping through it and noticed this gorgeous dining set (which had somehow escaped my attention the 50 other times I looked through the catalog). Anyhow, I was struck by the simplified look and the throwback MCM-ness of it all. It's very on-trend for all the rustic/Scandinavian modern lovers, yet still has an air of vintage-y charm about it. What do you think?

Scandinavian Dining Spaces


Let's start this week off with a big helping of Scandinavian dining spaces, shall we? Because, really. These are some of the most inspiring interiors I've seen in a long time and it would be an utter shame not to share them with you. I spotted them over the weekend on Emma's Design Blog, a great source of enlightenment for lovers of the Scandi Modern style. The images come from RUM, a Danish design site.
