WF Magazine Side Table

For our October issue we're celebrating the best in American design, so we recently got on the phone with Parsons-trained furniture and lighting designer Joshua Howe who spoke to us from his Hudson, New York, workshop about the new WF Magazine Side Table. "The idea is a simple geometric structure with pieces that can be added to it," he says of the steel-framed table. The modular system includes options for both a concrete slab to sit or store things on and a magazine rack. The tables sell for $2,300 and can be purchased through the Culture and Commerce Project in Hudson. Read on for a breakdown of how Howe brings the WF Magazine Table to life.

Capitol Butter Dish from ODLCO

With the Democratic and Republican conventions now over, what we've all known for months now is finally official. It's Mitt vs. Barack, impressive hair vs. impressive ears, Harvard lawyer vs. Harvard lawyer in an escalating, autumn-consuming death match for the White House/free world/future of all mankind. Feeling patriotic? Feeling cynical? Feeling like a piece of buttery toast? Should that last one appeal, Republicans and Democrats alike should consider keeping that delicious, fatty spread in Morgan Carter's hilarious new Capitol Butter Dish for ODLCO. Made from porcelain in Chicago (ODLCO and POTUS's home), this clever riff on the architectural tchotchkes they sell in DC by the boatload should swiftly become a bread-and-butter addition to any design-minded table. And at just $50 apiece, you can afford to pass them out to all the fellas in your Super PAC.

Catenary Stool by Token

Catenary Stool by Token

Brooklyn design studio Token cites rigging equipment, bridges, and the classic director's chair as inspiration behind their new Catenary stool, recently debuted at ICFF. You might recall that another new furniture design we featured—Cassina's reissue of Franco Albini's Veliero shelving unit—also references civil engineering and nautical influences. Is there a micro trend in the works?

Furniture Fresh from South Central L.A.

In our October 2011 issue we're spotlighting all of our favorite American-made design. To lend a hand, we've asked Michael and Ruth Storc of the great site Design Patriot to share their top Made in the USA finds with us. This week, they spotlight Cisco Home, a sustanable furniture company based in South Central Los Angeles.   When he was in his early twenties, Cisco Pinedo began making custom furniture for his neighbors out of his home garage in South Central Los Angeles. As his business grew, he started buying abandoned buildings on an industrial strip of Western Avenue in the downtrodden neighborhood where he started. Cisco Home still makes all their upholstered goods, case goods, and their welded and hand-blown glass lighting in Los Angeles (under the name Cisco Brothers), employing over 100 workers in their factories alone. Every item in the huge range of stylish pieces is made with an eye on sustainability and green practices.

Made in America: Wolverine Boots

Inspired by our "Made in the U.S.A"-themed October issue, which is chockablock with awesome American designs, I've been looking out for great-looking heritage products that are domestically produced. My recent online rambles have turned up Wolverine Boots, made in the US for the past 125 years. Last year they introduced a new limited-edition cordovan boot, the dapper 1000 Mile 721LTD.
