Furni Introduces "Jacob, Jones and Brown"

Earlier this year when I saw some of the affordable home creations coming out of the Montreal-based Furni design studio, especially their desk and wall clocks, I immediately wrote them to find out if they were going to introduce a line of alarm clocks (at the time, none of the clocks had that functionality).

This morning, I got an email from designer/owner Mike Giles who informed me of their new project: Jacob, Jones and Brown, a line of high-end digital clocks made of only superior wood, which launched today.

Furni rolled out two JJB lines, the Gator SE (solid edition), which has two types of wood -- Murado and Walnut -- and Walsh (above), featuring teak and mahogany clocks with a larger digital face. While both styles will come with alarms, the Walsh line is still a prototype. When the clocks hit the Furni store this fall, they'll retail for US$288.

Another piece I particularly like is Furni's new Miller bamboo cutting board (below), part of their Hilo affordable modern line. Its raised, laminate surface has a hole that fits three interchangeable stainless-steel bowls, so whatever you're cutting can go directly into a bowl for stir-fry, sauteeing or serving.

I really dig Furni's hip, retro vibe, which permeates all their designs and website. It almost feels like the shop wishes it were born in Scandinavia in the '70s, but fortunately for us, they're here now.
