Prouve Standard Chair from Vitra
Just love this chair, even though it may go hopelessly out of style in the next five years (because it's so popular right now). But Vitra has made it a little less likely to happen by releasing it in new colors.

Xpand Tables
These Xpand tables just have to be seen to be believed. They are an extraordinarily simple and yet complex design principle, which allows the actual wood of the table to expand and flex due to the slits in the wood itself. They are elegant, stable and really do expand so that you would never need a leaf again.

Disappearing Round Dining Table by NYIT Students
This round prototype table was just such a space saver we had to snap it. Designed by students, it MAY be slated for production (we were told) and is sure to be a big seller in NYC.
