Lazzari and Foppapedretti, names to remember
Designing a modular wall unit to fit your specific needs just got a little easier now that Italian manufacturer Lazzari began offering custom designs to the U.S. market this month at ColorfulStyles.com.
The Cube ($85.99), the square module that is the building block of the wall units shown above, can be used in combination with the Half Cube ($76.99) or stacked on lockable caster wheels ($14.99) or small feet ($14.99).
Storage bins that fit into the cubes also can stand alone. The larger Drawer B bins, regularly $46 each, have been marked down to $40.99. The smaller Drawer A bins for Half Cubs are $36.99. The Lazarri man-shaped pouf pillow, pictured above in orange, is regularly $298 but is on sale for $218.99.
ColorfulStyles.com also will sell an extensive line of compact solid beech furnishings by Foppapedretti. Modern, space-saving accessories include the Siesta TV tray ($234.99), at right; a kitchen trolley ($284.99); a clothes rack/valet ($274.99); and my personal favorite, the portable ergonomic ironing stool ($233.99).
Free shipping on all orders over $150 through Dec. 31. (888) 630-3334.
