When dievca moved to NYC she bought furniture at IKEA because she has a storage load of Antiques in the Midwest and she wasn’t sure if she was going to stay…. The sofabed was an IKEA floor model that was on sale because it was discontinued, so around year 10 dievca had to get a new sofa cover made in Australia…
Why did dievca keep the sofabed? The pull-out bed was very very very comfortable – the sofa itself was not (she knows – she’s crazy) ?!?!?!?!?
dievca was looking for an upgrade and she found a sofabed she liked in a Hotel Suite on Roosevelt Island, but it was too heavy to lift so she couldn’t figure out the maker. she asked the Hotel Design Team but they never responded to her email….. So, when a neighbor wanted to upgrade to a larger sofa after 6 months, dievca hopped on to the purchase of their sofabed (great condition and it fits into her decor).
It was amazing — a building worker got her sofabed out and the larger newer one into the apartment in 45 minutes or less. Aiding and abetting her crazy and impulsive decision!
How did it work out?
The sofa is larger and more comfortable, but she hasn’t slept on the bed yet. (It’s only been two days). Cross fingers 🤞
What do you do when you find the perfect sized bench for your small NYC Apartment?
Pop open a bottle of champagne!
That’s what dievca did when she found the Room & Board Baltic Bench:
This clever bench and coat rack is the result of a partnership between Room & Board and students at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in an annual Design Scholar Competition. One of the winning designs, this piece features a wood seat with a small indentation to hold keys and other small objects (available on either the left or right side of the bench). The base and coat rack are made from powder-coated steel to round out the modern mix of materials.

Is one of your favorite things to kneel before your Master or Madame?
Offering yourself or seeking release from the day?
dievca’s shoulders relax and she finds home kneeling in front of Master,
while He is sitting in His chair.
The Mid-Century Modern Wenger Papa Bear (Teddy Bear) Chair:
dievca has moved and her furniture doesn’t work in the new space, so she is on the look out for a pair of new armchairs, coffee table, stools, bench, etc. Currently, she has a large aubergine Contempo Design leather chair for Master. It’s too bulky. she needs something lighter more open and she went looking for a pair of armchairs, yesterday.
Unknowingly, her tastes ran towards the Wegner Classic 290 Easy Chair!
But, at a $2700 price tag, each – she had to look at similar options at lower prices:
and ended up with:
Apparently both Master and dievca admire Wenger chairs.
dievca is hoping that Master will find His place in the new armchairs
with His dievca kneeling before Him.
Hans J. Wenger
As a driving force behind ‘Danish Modern’, Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public’s view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title ‘the Master of the Chair’. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness.
Sergio Rodrigues, 1958
One of the first pieces designed by Sergio Rodrigues, “the father of Brazilian modern design”, the versatile “Mucki” can double as bench or coffee table, in varying lengths, with fixed height.
The originals go for $8000 to $16,000 dollars.
About Sergio Rodrigues
Sergio Rodrigues has been dubbed the father of Brazilian furniture. Indeed, he was responsible for establishing a new paradigm in design, setting himself apart with his very own language in his quest for a clearly recognizable Brazilian identity. He became notorious for his use of robust woods like jacaranda, peroba and imbue to create quintessential icons. His notorious “Mole” armchair was an immediate success, comprised of jacaranda and upholstered cushions supported by leather straps. The piece, informed by Rodrigues’ playfulness and wit, readily became associated with a typically relaxed Brazilian attitude and lifestyle. Rodrigues furniture lets the robust thickness of Brazilian wood speak for itself with his imaginative functional forms and playful volumes.
Sergio Rodrigues was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1927. The designer graduated from the Faculdade Nacional de Arquitetura in 1952, and shortly after founded one of the first stores of modern furniture and art in Curitiba. In 1955, Rodrigues opened the more established company Oca, which he referred to as ‘a laboratory for Brazilian furniture and handicrafts’ and became one of the most critical components in the evolution of furniture in Brazil. Rodrigues later set out on his own and has since been designing furniture, hotels, residences and notorious pre-fabricated dwellings.
Amongst his well-known works are pieces of furniture designed for the Brazilian Embassy in Rome, for the UNB (Brasília University) and the Teatro Nacional (National Theater in Brasília). The designer has worked closely with Oscar Niemeyer, as the latter’s interior designer of choice for his buildings in Brasilia. (from EPASSO.com)

A Corset Chair?
Or the less expensive Corset Cover
for a Dining Room Chair?
Maybe just a Sexy Back…
Or maybe your Home Decor
needs to move in another direction~

Even the most demanding decorators would approve of a trunk or chest at the end of the bed. Choose one that locks to hide X-rated toys that don’t blend well — but you can also use the trunk itself as a pervertable. Look for one with ring handles to tie your lover down, turn it into a spanking bench, or use it as an impromptu wedge to explore different angles.
