Classic furniture designs are called classic for a reason – the first thing you buy/gather as an adult is a table, chair, and a bed. Such is the need for these designs, they are available in a range from the cheapest to the exclusively designed pieces that go into thousands of dollars. We may start our furniture collection with IKEA, however, the designs we have showcased today are collectibles – exquisitely designed pieces of furniture that are yours to own, showcase, and hand over as they are to last across generations. Have a look and let us know your favorites!
Wood is a solid material. Such is the construction that we have used to build products, small to big, even our homes across the ages. Casey Johnson Studio has elevated the humble wood to an artistic expression that is almost fluid in shape. Meet the Billow Desk – a classic desk setup with a floating cabinet that curves in gracefully, like a billowing curtain. The hand-shaped walnut desk is one of the last commissioned pieces made by Casey, and it remains a piece to remember.
Geometry in furniture design has a very modern effect, almost timeless in its aesthetics. This TV cabinet by Loft Kolasiński has the same mesmerizing effect.

Once you have this piece, your attention will be commanded by this piece such that you may revise the interior of your home to match this piece.
The NomNom Coffee Table by Dezin Design is as cute as its name goes. The design uses contrasting wooden colors to showcase the softness of its form. The legs of the coffee table curve gently over the top of the table, almost like it is trying to eat the table! Clean, finished, minimal lines, these all components make this table a worthy addition to your living space.

Lozi Design used a supersized wave joint made from light solid ash and a variety of surface finishes to create the Wave Table. This perfect centerpiece is a part of their ‘wave series’ that highlights and adds a new dimension to any contemporary home. Lozi has also developed a new surface material for this table – by re-purposing their waste sawdust they have created a red sheeting material by mixing it with Bio Resin. Eco-friendly with a side of furniture details!

For this design, the team collaborated with their friends at Demeter Millwork for a classic design with sturdy construction that is sure to stand the test of time!
We have seen a lot of designs that incorporate resin – it’s a trending art that is here to stay. While most designers use resin to rework their design, designer Meubles Thouret decided to take an innovative approach that helps you appreciate the wood in its natural form even better – using resin to mold or join different pieces of wood. Each individual wooden piece retains that cut pattern, which is now encased in resin, and the added use of resin means the tricky joinery is now in the hands of this flexible material. Smart and aesthetic, isn’t it?!
Culturally, the Japanese have been known for their attention to detail while maintaining a minimal aesthetic and this same technique can be seen in Hamanshi Design’s Paraboloid Chair. Composed of a bentwood frame and a characteristic rope back, the hyperbolic form tightens up the diagonal rope back and can be optimized as per the user’s back to disperse pressure.
