You've always considered yourself both stylish and resourceful when it comes to the furniture in your pad, but that milk crate/coffee table can only hold, like, five Family Circus compilations. Get more room and actual style with Ali Sandifer.
Made by a Michigan-turned-Chi husband and wife team who started out doing custom work and just recently discovered the Internet, AS handcrafts fetching furniture out of sustainable domestic woods (walnut, ash, white oak) that pays equal mind to form (sleek, clean modern lines, and contours) and function, keeping your mags out of harm's way so that Redbook doesn't refer to everything your Kool-Aid landed on. Organizing and beautifying your living room is the Zaide, a coffee table with exposed internal storage and a three-legged wishbone base; the Mag, another coffee table with smooth rounded edges that's bisected with sunken magazine storage; and the Tele, an endtable that can be paired with the Mag and operates on two levels, just one less than Carrot Top. Non-tabley but equally useful action comes from the aptly named Desk, which can be customized for righties or lefties and has well-integrated compartments for bags, books, and paperwork; the Sheila, a low-slung entertainment center-type piece with three drawers and an adjustable shelf, and the Edith, an imposing credenza flanked by two massive cabinets, features that have long caused Sheila to secretly loathe Edith.
Because you'll need some place to sit after putting all your crap away, they also have the George, a flannel suede-covered plush club chair with a contoured back cushion, so you can enjoy the zany adventures of Billy, Dolly, Mom, and Dad, as God intended: without other people knowing.
