Top 10 Furniture Picks of June 2022

What really makes or breaks a home at the end of the day is the furniture that is placed in it. The right kind of furniture design can create the essence and soul of a home. And I think it is essential that the soul of our house is a reflection of our own soul. It is therefore essential to choose furniture that brings out the best in our homes, while authentically representing our personality. You should choose fun, sophisticated and functional designs. They add an extra sparkle to your home, without compromising utility in the least. From asymmetrical wooden storage that doubles as a beautiful side table to a striking lounge chair that curves and folds to provide comfortable seating – these intriguing furniture designs are what your modern home needs!

1. Crusader

Having something that can perform multiple functions at once is definitely better, and that’s what Crossbred tries to offer on a slightly smaller scale.

Why is this remarkable?

The name of the piece of furniture speaks of both its form and its function. It looks like an “X” or a cross, as some might call it, standing firmly on the tips of its two legs. It’s a hollow cross through and through, and the five spaces can be used to store anything from books to trinkets. That said, given their slanted surfaces, it’s obviously not a good idea to put something that requires a perfectly horizontal plane, like flimsy decor or even a picture frame.

What we like

  • Multifunctional design
  • Fits perfectly in modern homes

What we don’t like

2. The Plot Twist Library

PLOT TWIST Libraries

PLOT TWIST Library Details

Prolific German furniture designer Deniz Aktay recently introduced the Plot Twist Bookcase. It is a piece of furniture made up of four separate twisted wooden elements. They are connected to each other, shaping and creating a stable form.

Why is this remarkable?

The design of the bookcase allows it to be accessible from all sides. As with most of Deniz Aktay’s product designs, this library is oddly satisfying. The curves are present as on the designer’s other projects. Additionally, most of Aktay’s works have undergone bending or twisting, such as the Wavelet, the Tie Stool, and The Pet Table.

What we like

  • Shelves accommodate similar sized books for a clutter-free look
  • The bookcase is stable and stands on its own

What we don’t like

3. Spectator

Named ‘Spectator’, this intriguing bookcase really looks like you’re staring at it! It appears to be made up of interlocking puzzle pieces, and each piece looks like a deformed human face!

Why is this remarkable?

The Spectator series of shelves is as much a work of psychological art as it is a piece of furniture. At its small scale, it demonstrates the wonder of our brain trying to fill in gaps to complete shapes and ideas, like how it is able to see faces in shapes so far removed from human heads. With so many faces hidden in plain sight, the roles of observer and observed are also reversed, at least in our minds.

What we like

  • The shelf adheres to minimalist design principles despite the odd shapes of its pieces

What we don’t like

  • Not everyone would love the aesthetics of this room

4. The Diag Desktop

This beautiful, minimalist and modern desk is called the Diag desk. It is designed to optimize storage space while integrating storage elements such as removable leather compartments. As simple and minimalist as the desk is, it doesn’t lack functionality or practicality in any form.

Why is this remarkable?

Given its minimalist construction, more space can be devoted to the desk table top, where most of the desk functions are reserved. Polish designer Marek Błażucki’s Diag desk is a type of minimalist design that incorporates storage systems into its construction, ensuring that users have ample desk space while keeping their necessary stationery close at hand.

What we like

  • Incorporates many storage systems into its construction
  • Ensures stationery does not fall out

What we don’t like

  • There are many visually similar desks on the market

5.Skrolla

A shining example of an ergonomic and aesthetic chair is Skrolla, a beautiful wooden chair whose curves are more than just for show.

Why is this remarkable?

Chairs with curved surfaces aren’t new, but you’ll often find these shapes in plastic or metal seats. These materials are easier to bend than wood, of course, but they are also less impactful when it comes to portraying natural beauty. This novelty serves to increase the beauty of Skrolla, its smooth wooden surface and smooth curved shape creating a visually appealing appearance that will fit well in almost any room. In addition, these curves have been carefully designed to provide the best comfort for anyone sitting on this magnificent piece of furniture.

What we like

  • Jointed and curved using a new patented process

What we don’t like

6. The Swing Ao Stool

Dubbed the Swing Ao Stool, this little number by Takusei Kajitani explores a fun concept of using tension to mimic “softness.” Much like a hammock is soft like a beanbag, although there is no “stuffing material” inside a hammock, the Ao Swing Chair provides a level of flexibility due to the fact that the seat is, in fact, suspended from the four legs of the chair.

Why is this remarkable?

The idea, says the designer, was born out of a need to eliminate sedentary lifestyles. “Most chairs were designed on the idea that sitting down is a static movement despite the fact that the human body is designed to move,” Kajitani explains. “It forces our body to stay rigid for a long time.” To this end, the Swing Ao stool promotes constant movement. Much like sitting on one of those yoga chairs, the Swing Ao Stool keeps you constantly moving, making you feel like a cross between a stool and a pogo stick!

What we like

  • The chair’s unique design explores a special arrangement where the seat and legs don’t really touch
  • This tension structure allows the seat to move freely in conjunction with the movement of the seated person’s pelvis like a small swing

What we don’t like

7. The Slide Bookcase

What you normally look for in a bookcase is functionality rather than form. You need something where you can store your books and decorations. But sometimes you also need something that looks good and will only show some of your selected titles. For this, you can choose some kind of unique design that will make it not only a piece of furniture but a decorative showcase for your favorite books. The Zipper Bookcase is one such creative achievement for a metal bookcase.

Why is this remarkable?

The German-based designer thought of creating a shelf that can represent the analogy of opening a book “where the pages diverge”. For this, he was inspired by an unlikely source: the zipper. The bottom of the structure starts off pretty simple with regular looking shelves that will fit thin books or at least a thick coffee table book. It then breaks down when you rise to the top and open it, like you would a zipper.

What we like

  • The top can display your books as if they were on tree branches

What we don’t like

8. The Landr Dining and Conference Table

The Landr Dining and Conference Table attempts to correct common table design flaws, promising enough stability that you can even place a lander on it to screw in a light bulb.

Why is this remarkable?

Of course, we’d rather you didn’t, but Landr’s designer is so confident in his stability to make such a bold and unqualified claim. Whether you’re cutting bread or standing on it, the table shouldn’t move an inch. At the very least, it wouldn’t collapse under your weight, and it sure looks like it could handle a tough lunar mission. This is despite a modular design which is also promised to be assembled without a problem.

What we like

  • Extremely easy to assemble
  • It is mostly made of renewable or recyclable materials

What we don’t like

9. The Circus Coffee Table Concept

The “Circus” coffee table concept is designed to bring people together in a more active and almost chaotic way. It’s taller than most coffee tables, tall enough to be a regular desk. In fact, it can even be used as a single one and has features designed to work on it.

Why is this remarkable?

The jumble of shapes and materials of the table is almost chaotic, like a circus. You have a mostly wooden table with metal components that add functionality to the table. The large circular hole in the middle transforms the disc into a donut and reveals two triangular shapes that form the legs of the table. Instead of a solid cylindrical base, the table has metal bars and doors on opposite sides, creating new contrasts in terms of design.

What we like

  • Bars serve as slots for books
  • Solid panels, on the other hand, are storage doors, as well as a way to run charging cables through without hanging off the edges of the table.

What we don’t like

  • It’s still a concept!
  • Probably impractical in setups where a wide cough is involved

10. The Brustolin Furniture Collection

On their own and with their particular designs, these pieces of furniture would have pretty much matched the description of minimalist products. Their basic shapes and base colors aren’t all that rare, but as with everything in life, it’s the different ways of mixing these elements that really make the difference. And in this collection, it is precisely this interaction of elements that distinguishes them without taking away their primary function as usable furniture.

Why is this remarkable?

The translucent epoxy resin legs and the opaque shelves already give the Differ shelf a very contrasting pattern. It’s the way light bends, reflects and refracts through these yellowish panels, however, that transforms the shelf into an almost dazzling light show, depending on where you stand. Given its unique visual properties, this shelf is designed to stand in the center rather than against a wall so people can walk around it and view it from different angles. It really differs from other shelves.
