Burrow Field Sofa

Burrow

Burrow practically popularized the sofa-in-a-box concept with its first sofa design, the Nomad. Since then, it’s released a whole mess of home furnishings, and now it released its third sofa collection, the Field. With a slimmer profile than the original Nomad, with a look that also has some design elements of its second sofa collection, the Range, the Field sofas give shoppers another excellent couch option. And like the other sofas, Field can grow (or shrink) with you thanks to its modular design and ease of delivery.

Herman Miller

Herman Miller’s latest chair pays homage to every writer’s favorite punctuation (kidding). The Comma Chair, designed by Michael Anastassiades, is a fairly bare bones chair with a circular seat, rounded back and straight legs. It’s available in six wood finishes and either leather or wood seating. Now we’re looking forward to an Em Dash sofa, the Semicolon chair or Ampersand bean bag.

The Citizenry Hinoki Collection

The Citizenry

In expanding its Hinoki Collection, home goods store The Citizenry has added four new products made in the fragrant and soft wood: a bench, a nightstand, a nightstand with a drawer and a counter stool. The pieces are crafted from hinoki sourced in Okawa, Japan, by the The Okawa Hinoki Workshop, a fair-trade workshop that’s been mastering the art of making furniture for over four generations. The pieces perfectly complement the existing pieces of a side table, floor mirror, sauna set and — the much-loved — bath mat.

Fritz Hansen Oxford Chair

oxford chair

Fritz Hansen

In 1965, architect and furniture designer Arne Jacobsen designed the Oxford chair for professors at St. Catherine’s College at the University of Oxford. The task chair was designed to look good but also to be a comfortable place to sit for long hours, which is basically what everyone is looking for in an office chair these days. This could explain why Fritz Hansen is relaunching the Oxford chair with a few modern upgrades. The new Oxford chair comes in either a low or tall option for its backrest, as well as an upgraded tilt mechanics and adjustable seat height, angled armrests so the chair can fit under desks and a number of upholstery options to suit everyone’s taste.

Steelcase Karman

steelcase karman™ office chair

Steelcase

Steelcase makes a number of amazing office chairs, one of which, the Series 1, is our pick for the best overall office chair. The brand has done it again with the release of its new Karman chair, which is equipped with a new type of mesh textile, called Intermix, that alleviates pressure on the sitter. Karman is meant to make you feel weightless thanks to a lightweight flexible frame. Whereas most mesh chairs use a rigid frame, the Karman’s adapts to your movements providing support without being hard. And if you’re sick of the typical black office chair, Karman comes in 13 colors and finishes. The chair will be available in early 2022, and we’ll keep our eyes out for when you can finally buy it.

CB2 x Kravitz Design

cb2 x kravitz design

CB2

Lenny Kravitz is a global rockstar so it makes sense that his collection with CB2 draws inspiration from all over the world. (Though one could wonder why the rocker has a furniture collection to begin with.) As CB2 describes it, the collection, “[draws] inspiration from the ateliers of Europe, the markets of Africa and beyond.” The collection runs the gamut from throw pillows to beds, each with its own distinct personality. If I had an endless supply of money and square footage, you could find the Imbu sectional, Traverse rug and Kibo media credenza in my home.
