Nice and New: Blu Dot For Urban Outfitters

The two-architect, one-sculptor trio behind contemporary furniture company Blu Dot has done it again. This time, making their streamlined, mid-century-inspired designs available to the younger, broker set. Blu Dot has debuted an exclusive collection of small modern furniture exclusively for Urban Outfitters. As it stands, the line includes a set of white and yellow Alvar Aalto-esque stools/side tables; a powder-coated steel sling chair; an asymmetric, architectural side table; a three-tiered, lily pad-esque white metal and faux bois side table; a sleek console with baby blue and yellow sliding doors; and a low, pared-down, grownup futon of a sofa.

Aesthetically, the collection stays true to Blu Dot's roots, with the same sense of utility, modernity, and nostalgia you see in other products. But the MDF used to make every piece but the seating is not to be overlooked. Although it may be more affordable than other Blu Dot items, $548 for an MDF console is not what I call a bargain. Pretty, though!

I agree with leslievanhoute, my first thought was that the pieces looked cheap.

Love Blu Dot, but yeah, $548 for a console is still too much for me to afford. Nice to look from afar, though.

I like the idea of the console, but in the photo it looks cheap. Great ideas, I'm not sure about execution
