This week’s Field Guide is a collection of stools.

We are moving in to our new space at the end of the month, and we are mentally organizing furniture. We’ve never had a bar in our kitchen before, so we have been thinking about purchasing some stools. During my search, I saw stools not only as bar chairs, but as desk chairs, dining room chairs, and plant stands. All great ideas. Here is some inspiration; I am really liking the Monarchy rocking stool, it would be great by the door to put on shoes.

Good Goods: Keating Woodworks

Good Goods
Geoffrey Keating was destined to work with wood although he got there in a roundabout way. After a series of jobs and degrees he found his way to woodworking, becoming a fifth generation furniture maker. His collection of spindleback chairs is incredible, and I couldn’t choose a favorite. He has so many more beautiful pieces, and they are all worth checking out.

Good Goods: Georg Bench

Good Goods
The Georg series for Skagerak was designed by Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm. Made with function in mind these key pieces make life easier, in a beautiful way. The bench is my favorite of the series. The pad fastens to the bench in a very smart way; I’ve never seen anything like it before.

This week’s Field Guide is all about cork.

Cork has a great texture, is versatile, and is unexpected. To top it off, if you harvest it correctly you don’t harm the tree itself, making it sustainable. Here are a few ways to incorporate cork into your home. I’m especially loving the cork wall in Matt and Kathy’s home.

This week’s Field Guide is all about display cabinets and cases.

Steven has a knack for collecting design toys. I would love to be able to display them in a nice glass cabinet in his future studio, of course. Here are some great ways to display anything.
