A cool Swedish company named Traspecialen makes a colorful line of retro-styled furniture called the Malibu. Now, there's a lot of retro out there, but what I love about this line is that the pieces come in odd sizes and configurations, and the colors include blue and orange (looks like a fluorescent green was recently discontinued...sigh).
The few pieces of Malibu I've seen in person seem reasonably well constructed for the price, along the lines of the higher end stuff at IKEA. The price for the storage cabinets pictured was in the $400-$600 range. Not too bad. In fact, I was hoping to get a few pieces myself, except...
malibu. where. are. you?
The only thing I don't like about the Malibu is that I haven't been able to find any for sale in the NY/NJ/PA area. If you know an online or offline store that carries the Malibu line, please let me know. (I e-mailed the company directly about where to find US dealers but so far...nothing.)
