Furniture on Hello Pretty

Looking for new furniture? Do a little online shopping on Hello Pretty, I’ve found some great buys that are modern and exclusive.

I fell in love with this half-moon table in copper and gilt from reMake upcycled furniture store when I saw it.  With it’s beautiful green leather top it looks like a vintage piece, which I’m obsessed with. This will look perfect in any entrance hall or bedroom.

I love this fun and non-symmetrical Frama bookshelf from Simpli Décor. It doesn’t just have to be a bookshelf, but can house anything you want. A little tip from the sellers; the bookshelf makes a great room divider too.

The soft grey stool from Leg Studios is modern and I think these would look great around a dinner table for something a little different. The seat cover is made from felt and the different shapes accentuate the uniqueness of these furniture pieces.

Another must have from Leg Studios are these brass plated steel side tables. These will definitely give your living room or bedroom a fun and edgy look.

The four-drawer TV cabinet from The Pallet Collection is great because it’s made from upcycled wood and you can choose from a variety of stains. I love that it’s a solid piece with enough space for you TV, DSTV, DVD player and anything else you might need to put there.

Superfront- Making The Ordinary, Extraordinary.

If you have ever been in an Ikea, you’ll know how wonderful it is to get lost in there. Wouldn’t it be great to get that piece of furniture you wanted and to jazz it up a bit? Superfront has you covered!

The Swedish company designs and manufactures a range of products that fit Ikea’s common cabinets. This includes; legs, handles, fronts, tops and sides. They make their products from materials like marble, leather, copper, brass and birch.

Superfront has a great colour palette from which you can choose your new front. They also have really cool colour names like Lime Pie Yellow and Grannie Pink, so what’s not to like?

Their products, which can be used throughout the house, are really beautiful. Superfront gives you the opportunity to create your own unique furniture and brings out the designer in you.

An awesome Mingo Lamberti / Raw Studios collaboration

It’s always an exciting thing when you see a local designer you love popping up in an international publication. Fans of South African Mingo Lamberti will be used to seeing this strong brand appearing all over the place.

According to the article I just read on DesignWorkLife, Mingo Lamberti was commissioned to come up with some graphic designs to apply to a furniture range for Raw Studios (also in South Africa). I absolutely love the result (and especially the colours used) - an amazingly well done job.

Furniture from 31 & Change

A little while ago I found 31 & Change and I’m smitten. They’re doing something I’ve always wanted to do: bringing old furniture back to life with some sandpaper, some love and some colour (which, in my opinion, they have selected impeccably). Their site describes themselves as “a Brooklyn-based furniture company that designs with a twist, a wink and a smile in mind.”

Please click through to their awesome little site and look at some of their other incredible one-of-a-kind pieces.

Unrelated… last Monday in April, hm. How in the heck… ?
