Thanks to Interior Design Magazine I found Gallix Design – another innovative furniture design company that will be showcasing at the Fuori Salone at Milan Furniture Fair 2009. I like the simplicity of this table collection… what do you think?

Green Chairs by Jolyon Yates by Kelli

I was drawn to the Stingray Stool (by Jolyon Yates ) because of the organic and playful shape… I am pleased to find out that it is made almost entirely in renewable birch and all the adhesives used are selected to have a low environmental impact.

My love for chairs by Kelli

When shopping for clothes my weakness is always shoes… but when shopping for furniture, it is almost always chairs! After all it was the fantastic chair designer Arne Jacobsen who was my inspiration to pursue furniture design in the first place. 🙂 You can expect me to write often about chairs I love… and today I want to share with you Meridiani.
