"Inspired in Berlin, Made in Los Angeles." That's the tagline for LA based Kalon Studios. AT:SF has mentioned them before, as well as AT:Nursery, and we just saw these great "3 Blocks" nesting stools in the latest issue of California Home+Design that we couldn't pass up mentioning them as well.
Kalon Studios creates beautiful sustainable furniture. They use renewable raw materials, and finish them with vegetable inks, or specially developed non-toxic oils. The 3 Blocks stools are available in 2 finishes- oiled bamboo or painted birch, and can come with or without the engraved design. We love that the versatility of these cubes. Use them as a coffee table, or side table, or even as extra seating. Kalon Studios even suggests that they could be a fun playground for your cats! prices start at $650 for the plain painted version, and go up to $1295 for the engraved version. See their website for the rest of their collection.
