furniture -grommit edition

Have been scouting out furniture at the current American Library Association conference here in Boston; but most of it so new for the vendors they have not updated their sites... Suffice to say, bent plywood is trickling down to the small people furniture. Design firm Offi, based in California make some functional stuff; sucker for roll-top-desks, so the rollertop seat grabbed me. They even have a chalkboard intergrated into a table -via Playgrounder.

P.S. Honorable mention to Cherner as well for perfectly executed modernist repros for kids.

P.P.S. Honorable mention to Knoll for their child's version Risom web-back chair.
