Five Modern Favorites

I’ve got some favorites on my wish list that I’ve just got to share. A few modern chairs, a new bed, and a trio of metallic pendants, here are five modern furniture favorites that I can’t stop thinking about:

HAL Armchair Wood from Vitra

I am dying to add a few of these modern chairs in white and red to my dining table. I really want to build up the mix and match vibe in my dining room and I think these beauties would work so well with the molded plastic chairs I already have.

Beetle Lounge Chair from GUBI

For the rare moments of quiet I do get, I want nothing more than to lounge in a Beetle Lounge Chair. It’s gorgeous, iconic and comfy. I seriously question if I would ever want to get up.

Cherner Stool from Cherner

Okay, so it seems like all I want are new modern chairs, which is sort of true. I just think that the Cherner Stool is a truly iconic piece that would happen to look great in my kitchen is all. They’re gorgeous and durable, and something I’m convinced my kids can’t destroy.

Motion Bed, Queen from Huppe

Now I think my master bedroom is in need of an upgrade. While the room is on the smaller side and we don’t have much space, I can’t help but feel like the Motion Bed was made for my space. It has a small foot print so it won’t take up a ton of room, and it still has beautiful design details. Who says you can’t have it all?

Precious FL/Y Suspension Lamp from Kartell

I’ve got to ask: what about these isn’t cool? On a serious note, I don’t know if I could settle on one finish. There’s something about copper, silver, and gold that I love and they really do look best together. Maybe a mix of all three together– new dining table lighting?
