Ooo, what a cool giveaway! I would love to win one!
Besides the super-futuristic curves of the vernor panton "S" chair itself, I've always been a huge fan of the Eames mod rocker. My dream is to have on in the nursery one day - so clean and sleek and so welcoming, especially adorned with pillows. The Wave Pendant is another of my favorites, super sophisticated and visually interesting - like a floating, glowing sculpture. The classic Arc Lamp creates such a unexpected movement in a room, which is something our living room could definitely use! And finally, the Eames Plywood Lounge Chair in walnut/pony because it somehow captures modern and rustic all in one package, and reminds me of old schoolhouse desks all at the same time - nostalgia!
I love the panel bed. So beautiful! I'd love to win the awesome chair. Thanks for all these giveaways!
I love the pillows, my favs are the humming birds!! They are so fun and silly but stylish
I love the Demi entry table. It's graceful and feminine, but still modern.
I'm a sucker for all things that verge on being almost too strange, but work. Which is probably why I was totally drawn to the ALABASTER STAG DEER HEAD STATUE IN WHITE!!! Wow, I do believe my walls will be wearing this soon. (Would look even better with the S chair under it!)
I LOVE their seating section. I'm thinking I need one of their aluminum chairs or that awesome rocker.
those chairs in shiny orange!
I love the Gold Leather Pouf. We have a lot of dust mite allergies in our house so we can't have any upholstered anything, really. I'm always on the look out for allergy friendly items and this pouf is SWEET! It's hard to find a leather pouf that's not stiff and dull looking. This one could really warm up a home.
My favorite is the Egg Chair. I just like the way it looks, all big and comfy :) I bet it would be a joy to sit and read in!
honestly, i was close to hyperventilation when i saw your blog this morning!!! a panton chair giveaway ?! are you kidding me!? i fell in love with this one when i saw it the first time years (more closely to decades, but let's not talk about that...) ago - but since we have lots of perfectly functional chairs (not as nice of course) that (unfortunately) seem to be indestructable, i was so far not able to convince my better half that we NEED new ones ... i have the feeling that if one of these beauties would be standing in our dining room, he would not be able to resist anymoore ... deep inside he is a design freak, too ;-)
This chair is on our baby list, along with the Eames Rocker. Our whole apartment is all designer furniture floor samples: nothing matches, though we've tried to pull the colors together using Flor tiles. We have the remake Panton chair in orange and I really, really want a little one to go with it! I'd love it in orange or white!
That chair is fabulous. I especially like the glossy orange & black.
THE PANEL BED IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I also love the POP Aussie Print, very eye catching!!
I love their elephant canvas prints - my little girl loves elephant stuff.
It's so out of character for me, but I absolutely LOVE the Tasha chandelier. I mean, it's a chandelier... but it is so cool in black! I also really dig the poufs. For my toddler-friendly hookah parlor...
Those antler bowls are pretty awesome! I've never seen such a product. I also LOVE the blue and white Bird on a Cherry Blossom pillows.
I love the WoodGrain coaster set...I have never seen anything like it! It would be a great conversation piece and it would go great with my decor! Thanks for the awesome chance to win this super cool chair! Keeping my fingers crossed....
Firstly, I love her website design and the color combo! I love the Pop Pup prints but was sad there was no pug or boxer! Awwww...
I love love love the Eames style Mod rocker. The colors are so bright and would look at home anywhere in your house. The thing I drool over, though, is the Linear Crystal Chandelier. I've been in love since I saw it in a design magazine. When I redo my kitchen it is on my must have list.
Did anyone see the hot dog pillow? Adorable... but I'm a chair collector at heart and will someday have a barcelona chair, egg chair, plywood lounge and eames set.
I love the Elephant print.
For me, it is a tossup between the aluminum mesh office chair and the Noguchi Style Free Form Sofa & Ottoman. I love solid mesh chairs, but the beige sofa/ottoman is wonderful.
I love the Tammy Bench. It would look great on our porch. Also the Elephant Canvas Print. My son loves the elephants.
I like the black egg chair, I don't know why, it just looks so cool! My husband and kids would fight over who sits in it. Dad would always win, though.
The pop Yorkie print brought a smile to my face. I'm going to have to show my husband this one. Perhaps it will end up on one of our walls.
I LOVE that Mod Rocker! I've been drooling of that chair since the beginning of time! Now that I have a baby I need to stop making excuses not to buy it!!! Thanks for the great giveaway!
My favorite items are the black egg chair and the black and white pouf. The chair looks comfy and I like the design of the pouf.
I love the queen pillow! It just really strikes me! It looks like something I would have!
Wow ... terrific selection! I'd have to narrow down my favorites to:
I am a big fan of the Eames Egg Chair. It's comfy for one, but especially cozy for a mama and one or two little ones! And timeless in a wonderful mod way.
My modern dose favorite is the Eames rocker, closely followed by the panton chair! I was actually drooling over it the other day on modern dose. Even with the sale going on I still can't fit this into my student budget so I would love to win one!
THe Flo 3-seater looks so cool! :) What a fabulous store!
I love the hotdog dog pillow and the the elephant prints. What a great site! Thanks.
The S chair is great-- it's got great lines...
Wow, What a wonderful and fun giveaway! I liked the "Branch Trunk Table" on their website very much. Please enter me in your splendid contest. Thanks, Cindi
My son is very excited about the elephant prints, but I definitley love the eames rocker- so cool. Please enter me- what a great prize!
ohh, I would love one of these Panton chairs in orange or white. We are also in need of a new office chair, so I will have to pick the Eames Aluminum Ribbed Lowback.
Definitely the Mod Rocker. My hubby and I don't often agree on furniture, but I know we'd agree on this being an ultra coll addition to our daughters room. Wouldn't we feel too hip during the nap and bedtime story! Cool stuff all around though - it was hard to pick a favorite. Thanks for the chance to win - firstname.lastname@example.org
My favorite Modern Dose items:
I like all of the bird pillows, especially the bid on cherry blossoms. Why? Because I love birds -- everything bird-related.
My favorites are in the Wall Decor section, though that's mostly because I can never decide WHAT to put on my walls! [sarasgoodiesatgmaildotcom]
I love the S Chair, but besides that, my favorite is probably the Egg Chair -- there is something almost "Dr. Evil" about it!
I love the egg chair, its so fun! thanks for the cool giveaway!
I love those Panton chairs - and the mini ones for the kiddies are adorable...lust, lust, lust. I'm also crazy for the pony skin plywood Eames chair. I have visions of a new couch when the 18 mos. old twins finally give up bottles, and maybe that leather number would be perfect. Thanks for letting a tired mom dream and for another terrific give-away and website link (that I never would have found on my own).
I also love the egg chair, it would really add charecter and flare to a room.
I think I like the Egg Chair and the Barcelona-Style Chair best. Why? Because they're well-made, well-designed, functional, timeless design icons that I'd love to have in my home. Thanks for such a cool giveaway!
I'm a big fan of simple, modern furniture for the whole house and kids' rooms. I love the stools and poufs at the site -- she has a great eye for color, and they look like they would fit in anywhere. I also love the elephant prints for a kid's room -- they're modern and cute at the same time!
I love the Flo 3-seater couch. It has very clean lines and looks comfy.
the s chair is cool. I also like the totem stool (double duty as a stool or side table) and the elephant canvas. Very nice.
Seriously, who doesn't need an Alabaster Deer Head? Awesome!
I have always loved the totem stool--anything that is functional AND beautiful...
I like the antler bowls and the elephant prints - all of the items look very cool! Thanks for the giveaway - I'd love to win!
i love the look fo the panel bed...
I LOVE the Eames-Style Plywood Coffee Table-- perfect for a living room with a modern sensibility AND toddler sensibility! BUT I also love the Pantone chair. Too perfect!
i love the butterfly cabinet and the elephant prints. both would be cute in my kids' rooms.
I love the egg chair. So chic and classic! I love this site.
I really like the Egg Chair. It looks unique and very comfortable at the same time. The S chair is awesome too, of course! Thanks for the great giveaway.
I would have to say for me the panel bed is my favorite!! Thanks
I love the lounge, because it looks so cozy and I could totally cuddle up and go to sleep in it
I love the black tasha chandelier because of elegance in its design. Not only is it a light fixture, it's a true piece of art. It's absolutely breath-taking.
The Demi Entry Table caught my eye. Very stylish looking
I like the Brooklyn canvas print. I think it's so cute and so chic; so mod!
I'm loving the antler bowls, I'm all about the modern nature lately!
LOVE the pillows, esp. the Rectangle Cardinal Pillow. We have a couch that has lots of pillows and I love putting cute decorative pillows on my bed.
Awesome chair. I love the 'leaf' and 'grass' trunk tables. They would make a great statement.
I love the egg chair- how cool! Breetrott at comcast dot net.
I LOVE the Butterfly Cabinets! I'm always looking for places to hide things! It's the OCD in me :)
I think I like the most expensive thing at the site. The Panel Bed is AMAZING! So elegant and rich!
Love the hotdog pillow since I have a granddog who is a wiener:)
The Eames plywood lounge chair is surprisingly comfortable, at least the ones I've tried out in stores, and the pony version here, the first I've ever seen done that way is really cool and would be a great addition to our little cowboy's room.
I love the Elephant Canvas Print. It looks like an elephant front or a horse back. hehe.
I love the Trellis Bookcase and the fact that it has drawers. Plus it's black, which would match my decor. Oh, the books I could store on that!
I really like the panel bed - it's beautiful1
i'm so glad you all are finding things you love on modern dose + you're as crazy about the "s" chair as i am.
Oh, I love this chair. I was just admiring the "jr" version and actually blogged about it. Anyway, I love the hot dog pillow on Modern Dose because we have a cool dog theme in my son's room and the pillow would be a great accent in there. The POP dog prints would also look fantastic in his room! The chain link coasters are another fave and they'd be perfect in our study. Thanks!!!
I adore the egg chair...very smooth.
This is a cool chair - I have never seen anything like it before!
Love the egg chair
Wow, what a great colour for the Panton chair! My favs over at Modern Dose are the Eames Plywood Lounge (the all wood one) and the matching coffee table. Wouldn't they look fabulous together??? Of course I'd love a vintage original set, but I don't think that's quite in my reach :)
LOVING THE Wood Grain Coaster Set
OOPS forgot the why part :)
Love the panel bed. I so desperatelly need new bedroom furniture.
i like the Panel Bed because it looks so lush and will match a variety of decoration schemes and i just love that modern feel!
My favourite is the Egg Chair in red! Dream future chair, for certain. The Leaf Trunk Table is very much my style as well. So many good ideas there!
I love the Aluminum Ribbed Lowback chair it would look great in our office and it looks like it would be really comfy too.
ooooh, I love the Tammy Bench, but maybe it's because it's WAY out of my price range. Also love the antler bowls!
I love the Parsons Console and the Ball Chair. I like them because they are kind of retro and it works for me. And I love the S Chair - again retro, again totally me. My husband and best friend do not like my taste preferences but then this is my world and they just live in it *grin* No, really, I am not that big a brat.
Count me in please!!
I love anything and everything Charles & Ray did. The recliner...the lounge chair...the rocker...they're all so comfortable. And the Alabaster Deer Head! That is the coolest design ever. We have mini Panton chairs in our house, would love to have the real deal to match.
i like the panton chair- modern and sleek. my other favorite products are the Eames chair and the Ball chair. we have a modern house and any of these would be a great addition!
Wow what a fantastic shop! Score, Mod*Mom!
great idea! great store! GREAT CHAIR!!! i love verner panton! i worked for a contemporary interior architect and showroom. so i had the opportunity to be surrounded by modern gems all day!
My favorite is actually the Panton chair. Would love to have a set for the dining room. But one is a good start...
My fav...that's easy. Eames lounge chair. I dream of the day I can afford to get one of these -- the most comfortable chair ever and so classic. The panton give away also caught my eye because I thought it would be very cool to put a couple outside on the deck. I'm going to check out this website in lots more detail -- it would be so great to have a reliable source for good quality reproductions since so much of the great modern furniture is so $$$$ Sadly, it's hard to justify the price tag for great design.
My favorites are the Egg Chair and the Trellis bookcase!
The Ball Chair!!!!
Fabulous giveaway Mod*mom.
Why? Because I like taffy. that is all.
J'adore the black and white pouf! http://www.moderndose.com/product_info.php?cPath=21_35_59&products_id=107 ...it takes me to another place!
I love the wire bar stools, and the eames rocking chair. Great style and look for a room.
My Modern Dose favourites have to include to Dog Pop Art, which is adorable! The Quba Daybed, the Barcelona chair, and the Ghost Chandelier. I love so many things on the site but those have to be my favourite! I would love to see those all together in a room, I think they are unique, classic, and eclectic pieces that go together very nicely.
Me likey the arc lamp, it's timeless, but then again so is Eames, Panton and Marimekko. I was just looking in Mid Century Modern and that lamp stood out to me. I also like the simplicity of the elephant canvas. As a child I had a fabric peice on my wall which is probably part of where I get my style from today. The S chair is "candy", that's the only word I can use to describe it. My kids would love this too, if I'd let them sit in it, lol. Again, thanks for the opportunity, no one else does giveaways like you.
Sure I'm a sucker for Danish furniture, Panton etc, but I think I'll go American this time so I'll say the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman. It's such a beautiful piece of classic furniture that it really needs no explanation. OK, it seems comfortable too.
I love the tasha pendant lamp! Something about seeing something that is traditionally one color (white) in something so different makes it really pop and catch the eye. I love it.
I love the plywood lounge chair. It is so sleek, and doesn't look like it takes up much room, yet it also looks comfortable. Thanks for offering the S chair as a prize, it is awesome too!
The Demi entry table is beautiful! And I have just the spot for it.
Chalkals Invasion - cause my kids draw on the walls anyway.
I love the egg chair in that berry red color...so beautiful! This site is awesome!
I love these chairs. My favorite is the Egg Chair. I once had one of these, it is so comfy.
I love the green elephant print and this green chair. Really cool. Cousin Heidi
I'm a huge fan of the Ball Chair! How cool is that piece!? Also, I'm digging the free form sofa & ottoman.We are using my husband's barstools from his tacky bachelor days. So, to have a cool set of wire or aluminum barstools- for our friends to sit at- would be awesome!!
The prints! I lurve the prints. Especially the "Elephant Canvas Print - Green."
The mod rocker and egg chair. I like the s-chair in flat black. All seem like they would be great for snuggling with the little guys.
I love love LOVE the hot dog pillow set! It makes me smile :)
I was a virgin blogger, until I accidentally came across your site. Modern furniture.. AND giveaways? Well worth me finally stepping over into the modern world to tell you what I like most about ModernDose. I think the white alabaster deer head is hilariously endearing. I'm thinking about getting one for a big white wall in my sometimes a little too modern home. It's begging for something whimsical. Do you think Eichler would have opposed? I also like the lucy totem stool, because it could easily double as a side table as well (and a great color, too). Thanks for this opportunity!
I love the coral bowl because it gives a nice marine theme to the dining table :D
i love the the Chalkals invasion. its totally cool .and fun and function!
i love the the butterfly cabinents.
I like the ball chair the best although with such great products it is very hard to pick just one.
The Hootie decal is awsome!!
My favorite is the Panton S Chair with Saarrin Tulip Chair running a close second and the the Ball Chair comes in third.
I can't decide between the Winter Owl and the Butterfly cabinet; I want both!!!
The butterfly cabinet please!
the new design is quite excellent in the s design would love to win this to put in my daughter new house.
I love the Tammy Bench! Modern but I love the lattice work.
Modern Dose is fabulous - We love the leather poufs! They are so fun and great for additional seating...We would love the S chair in glossy white for our daughter's room!
That site is fab! Love the little chair! The Pouf caught my eye; I'm a photog that works out of my home so it would do double duty - my family + my clients would love it. Thanks for the contest!
Chalkals - Hootie, Elephant Canvas Print - Orange, Brooklyn - Orange
Ohhhh my God I soooo love the Egg chair!! Wow! Now THAT is THE LIFE!! :)) Would love to win this cool 'S' chair!
When we were kids, we didn't have a fireplace, so on Christmas every year my mom would tape the looping "Yule Log" on TV and play it back all winter. The CAMPFIRE PILLOW at moderndose brings me back. I also love the dog prints, which are much like vicariously having a dog.
The Ball Chair is my absolute favorite!!! The reason: I used to love the movie Dazed and Confused (back when I was both dazed and confused LOL). And they had a similar chair in the movie. Ever since, I have always wanted one. SOOOO cool!!
This is an amazing giveaway! I love so many of Modern Dose's pieces. Grass Trunk Table is so clever. The Mirielle urns are oooh la la lovely. This is such a rad shop!
The egg chair (in red) is my favorite! It would go perfectly with my living room!
I love the antler bowl. It goes with the decor of our living room "modern lodge". We just got a carved wooden moose head and now I may have to get an antler bowl.
I love the egg chair, but the Panton chair has always been my favorite.
The Panton Chair is my favorite. I was going to buy one today, but they are no longer running the two-for- one special :-(
