A stool that is solid Black Walnut and harvested on the Niagara Escarpment

Coolican & Company:

Streamlined, durable and thoughtfully crafted. The Palmerston Stool is the new classic stool. Made of solid Black Walnut and harvested on the Niagara Escarpment, this stool boasts a classic turned leg and a faceted top for comfort. Coolican & Company is Toronto's first small batch furniture company, crafting each piece in a small, limited run. This means each piece is guarenteed to wear better and last longer. It's not fast furniture. It's furniture made well.

a cluster of white lights made from perforated cast aluminum and bent sheet steel

MSDS-Studio:

Awarded Best Collection at IDS15, MSDS Studio showcased a cluster of white lights made from perforated cast aluminum and bent sheet steel. The display and featured pieces oozed Scandinavian-chic with a touch of 80’s edge. Design Milk describes the light collection as “decorative and emotive rather than utilitarian”, and we couldn’t agree more. Simply brilliant!
