2) PogoHome, by Urban Workshop

St. Louis-based designers Dave and Julie Scheu used their architecture background to devise their pogoHome Collection, rooms-on-poles that can go anywhere by simply wedging them between the ceiling and floor. Based upon the idea that furniture can literally be the room, the collection features various pole designs that serve the essential functions of a household (by holding clothes, books and plants), and those that add luxury to life (by displaying art or conversation pieces). “The inspiration was loft living, where you define areas with the furniture rather than building walls to break up the space into small rooms,” Dave Scheu says about the collection. “It’s also great for small spaces where you don’t have a lot of room, like an apartment.”

Pieces in the collection vary in price from $600-1900 depending upon the configuration of components. Go to www.urbanworkshop.us for more information.

3) Artecnica

A member of the Los Angeles artist’s collaborative Artecnica, designer Tord Boontje invented the lighting structure Midsummer Light after the idea came to him while he was “walking through a forest and watching light and how it interacts with nature.” The fixture, made of Tyvek (the same material used for FedEx envelopes and medical gowns), was difficult for manufacturers to mass-produce because the complex detail in the fixture had never been cut industrially at that scale before. Midsummer Light is a floral design motif creating a romantic reminiscence of nature in an interior, with playful color, shadows and images.

This incredible piece is $70. For more information about “Midsummer Light” visit www.artecnicainc.com.

4) Plynyl by Chilewich

Plynyl, invented and designed by Sandy Chilewich, is a textural, colorful, versatile woven vinyl floor surface created through bonding an extremely durable synthetic fabric to a high performance, flexible commercial grade backing. “The woven vinyl portion is really for outdoor furniture upholstery, but I felt it was very underutilized both from a design point-of-view, and a function point-of-view,” Chilewich explains. “It’s a hybrid – it has all the maintenance-free advantages of a tile, with all the softness and comfort of a carpet.” In addition, Plynyl is durable, stain-resistant, completely washable, and a beautiful addition to any home.

Prices begin at $100 for a 2’ x 3’ area rug. Wall to wall installation is also available. More information about Plynyl can be found at www.plynyl.com.
