Coleman Stool

Greta de Parry

The Coleman Stool is one of Chicago furniture maker Greta de Parry’s signature designs. The sturdy, stylish perch has a powder-coated steel base; the seat is available in solid wood or hand-cast concrete in a range of muted colors. See it in person at one of the Midwest’s furniture powerhouses: Minneapolis’ Forage Modern Workshop. Photo: James John Jetel

Swivel Throne

Todd Merrill Custom Originals X OLEK “Damn I wish I had #You,” says one. “#Fear is only temporary. #Regret lasts forever,” says another. For her eye-catching Swivel Thrones, Polish-born artist Olek cloaked four custom Todd Merrill chairs – canvases, really – in her distinctive provocative crochet. The four thrones were part of an Olek installation at the Brooklyn Museum earlier this year; today, you’ll find the two remaining available thrones on display at the Todd Merrill Studio Southampton gallery.
