It only happens twice a year — Vitra is on sale at Design Public. Save 15% on iconic modern classics now through October 22nd 2015. Here is just a small handful of the wonderful products that add a playful feeling to modern design.16806__dpVitra Eames Elephant. Vitra’s got something for all ages. Charles and Ray Eames designed this happy little elephant back in 1945 but it was never mass produced. Vitra has stepped in and made their design come to life in plastic that can stand up to being left outdoors.


Vitra Eames House Bird. This classic little folk-art guy has been a symbol of the great taste and style of Charles and Ray Eames for decades.


George Nelson Clocks. No mid-century modern wall was complete without one of these playful and functional pieces keeping time.


Uten Silo. Whether you need to corral you office supplies, crafting materials or bathroom stuff, designer Dorothee Becker’s Uten Silo has you covered, right within reach on the wall.


Vitra Kast Storage. This modular color-blocked composition floats atop its metal legs. Designer Maarten Van Severen designed several versions — this serves as a low console, perfect to use for a TV. This two-tiered version makes a great sideboard. The tallest version is a shelf/cabinet unit.


Verner Panton Cone Chair. A sale is the best time to pick up that iconic work of art you have been looking for. This eclectic classic plays with geometry and color. Of course, if you’re not into the cone, there’s always …



The Vitra New Panton Chair.  The wide variety of colors and durable polypropylene make this a sculptural chair a versatile piece that works as well in an elegant dining room as it does in a playroom.


Vitra Cork Stool. Jasper Morrison’s simple stools add a big dash of light texture to any room as a side table, nightstand or coffee table.

So you’ve got these an over 100 other options to save on now. The catch: you have to hurry! This only happens twice per year and the sale ends October 22nd.

Design Public Guide: Great Desk Chairs for Homework Time

Posted by | View all posts by

Well, we’ve covered desks and lamps in our Back to School Design Public Guides. Now it’s time for comfy and attractive chairs for homework time. Here are some of our top picks from around the site. 13-0005343.jpg

Steelcase Think Chair. This ultimate desk chair is smart enough to adjust to you and the rest of your family members’ weights and postures. There’s built-in lumbar allows for additional dialed in back support. The 4-way adjustable arms provide support for your arms, wrists, and shoulders in a variety of postures. The 4-way adjustable arms provide support for your arms, wrists, and shoulders in a variety of postures.



Steelcase Move Multi-Use Chair with Upholstered Seat. There’s more to this stylish and stackable chair that meets the eye. Under the seat cushion there is a support system that conforms to your body — flexors inside the seat curve with your curves and move as you move. What I like most about it is it’s versatility; it can serve as a comfy desk chair or dining chair. So working at the kitchen table is comfortable, or if it’s in your kiddo’s room, you can reclaim it when she goes off to college.

rollersideappleModernica Side Shell with Rolling Base Chair. This molded fiberglass classic is a modern icon, made from the original molds that the Eameses designed. The seat height adjusts approximately from 18 inches to 22 inches. I chose the version that rolls, because rolling is fun and can tempt your child right into the homework seat. Let him have some fun cruising the floor before he has to get down to business. blue_graphite


Steelcase Turnstone Buoy Chair. Sometimes ya gotta shake up homework time a bit. The buoy chair looks like it’s meant for something more fun than homework, so let it work its deceptive magic and tempt your child right over to those sentences she needs to diagram. The buoy wobbles and engages the core, and the height can be adjusted in a five-inch range.


Blu Dot Real Good Chair. We picked this powder-coated beauty in red because it enlivens the senses and ignites passion. While available in other lovely colors, grab a red one for homework time.

visu_sledbase_black_field_142.jpgMuuto Visu Chair — Sled Base, Upholstered Seat. The cozy upholstered seat on this version of the Visu chair is inviting and ergonomic. The sled base on this version adds an irresistibly modern touch.



Blu Dot Roy Chair. This chair made the list for four great reasons. It’s padded, attractive, stackable and available at a great price point.

We wish we had the room to share more details about our desk chair selection. But you can check them out for yourself:

Don’t Miss the Gus Modern Summer Sale!

Buying a new sofa is a big deal. It’s one of those big purchases that you hem and haw over and save up your money for. Don’t miss this chance to save 20% on Gus*Modern’s upholstered pieces. There is a range of beautiful styles, fabrics and colors. Also while you’re shopping, why not pick up a chair or two, and/or an upholstered ottoman? The sale is on until August 16, 2015, so you’ll have plenty of time to hem. And haw. Then decide.



The Margo Sofa is a beautiful new classic with French flair. And deep jewel-toned blue is the new neutral. Upholstered in jewel-toned velvet, you’ll want to channel your inner George Costanza and ensconce yourself in it. By the way, if blue velvet’s not for you, it also comes in quartz, zinc and goldleaf.


If Don Draper was shilling on Madison Avenue in 2015, I think he’d choose The Davenport Sofa. Its clean lines are a current update on mid-century modern style, and its sleek stainless steel base adds a contemporary touch.  It also comes in a bi-sectional version as well.


The Thatcher Sofa combines a steel frame with unique diamond-patterned upholstery that adds a slightly more traditional touch.




Need more space to stretch out and seat more people? The Jane Bi-Sectional Sofa gives you room to put your feet up and relax. Warning: This may induce a fat nap.



The Mimico Ottoman is one of those pieces that will serve you in many ways, in a bunch of rooms, for many years to come. Place it in the entryway as a landing strip, where you can take your shoes off and stash them, your bag and other equipment out of view inside. Use it as a coffee table that doubles as an ottoman. Place it at the end of your bed as a bench and keep an extra throw blanket stored inside. There are so many possibilities.


The Spanner Chair was designed in 1950 and its playful style has endures. In fact, it was out of production for about 50 years before Gus struck a deal with the Spanner family to bring this beauty back to life.
