Leif.designpark's Lin chair represents another stellar collaboration between the Japanese design studio and De La Espada. Choose between sturdy wood frames of black oak or American white walnut and cotton or wool upholstery to match your color scheme, and we can definitely see this piece becoming the best seat in the house.
A bounty of salvaged fir provided inspiration for the Whitaker Collection, a stellar collaboration between Semigood's Thom Jones and (Dwell's very own senior designer!) Brendan Callahan, and Seattle steel worker Dave Whitaker. The unique colors and grains of the upcycled timber pieces—which also include a bench, desk, and side table—offer perfect contrast to the sturdy 100% post-consumer recycled steel legs.
We've long been big fans of Xenia Taler's folksy decorative tiles, and a recent quick browse through her site has only fueled our adoration. Xenia's designs are hand-colored on her partner Steven Koblinsky's custom clay and unique glazes, and the substantial pieces—most are 4"x4" or bigger—would look great on a wall on their own, or set in with a series of field tiles. This polka beetle is from the night garden collection.
