This manufacturer has expanded the New Antiques neo-classical line with pieces in pure white, augmenting last year’s all-black range. Designer Marcel Wanders’s new chair, with or without armrests, has a seat made of interwoven webbing. The piece’s charm engages the sitter; the comfortable seat seals the deal.

Iglooplay by Lisa Albin Design
Lisa Albin Design is out to demonstrate that child-proofed furnishings need not look dowdy nor nursery-like. Her Mod Rocker, for instance, almost resembles a mid-century modern Danish piece. Its organic, sculptural shape is formed by two bent-plywood pieces; available in two colors. What’s more is that a portion of Iglooplay’s profits goes to Unicef. 123 Seventh Avenue, 279, Brooklyn, NY 11215; 718-622-0047; iglooplay.com.
Graceful, tapered lines define the Stretto side chair—a design by Richard Holbrook. The chair can be specified in a variety of styles including wood slate back with upholstered seat and open arm, half-upholstered back and upholstered seat with closed arm, full-upholstered back, and so forth.
