At Modernseed, we pride ourselves not just on providing quality design to the masses of minis but to setting good examples for them as well. That's why our store door is adorned with a human equality sticker, and a "Safe Space" card is posted inside. We're loud & proud equality freaks!
So to help wave the rainbow flag high, we're going to use this post to feature a rainbow of products. :-)
Happy Pride Month, friends!

Father's Day is fast approaching... and we mean FAST approaching! Just five days from now, Dad will be in the spotlight! Why not honor him with a well-designed gift from Modernseed?
If Dad packs lunch, help him take it in style with a Box Apetit from black + blum! Water-tight and built to last - and available in three color combos - he'll love the BA! Just $22!
For the dads who keep a tight schedule, try a clock like the LED Numbers from Areaware! Easy to set and program, this digital clock gives design a twist. Perfect for bedside, or Dad's man-cave! (Retails for $100, which means FREE shipping to the lower-48.)
Perhaps Dad does a lot of work from home... why not spoil him with the Offi Overlap Tray designed by Eric Pfeiffer! As a father himself, Pfeiffer knows what it's like to juggle schedules and designed this tray to better enable working two jobs at once: designer and DAD! The birch is just $179; oak and walnut are $199.
At Modernseed, we want you to demand more from your furniture! We believe that introducing children to quality designs will enhance and enrich their lives, and teach them to expect functionality and reliability in other aspects of their lives. The Herman Miller Company has always strived to provide families with the best designs out their, made with quality materials and skilled hands. Here are a few products the whole family can enjoy, but mini especially!
The Eames Molded Plastic Armchair is a semi-low chair. Nice at a dining table or desk, it is also sturdy and cozy enough for mini to climb into... and sit at her favorite desk, the Nelson Swag Leg! This simple desk is great to "grow up with" rather than "grow into." Minimum storage forces you to keep your area tidy, and the colorful dividers offer a touch of whimsy.
The Eames Molded Ply Lounge Chair is a true mid-century icon. Low to the ground with a perfectly sloped back, it fits to the body like every chair should! The durable ply base will allow mini to climb up easily... unless she decides to use that Wire Base Table as a stool! Side table, coffee table, whatever table, this little guy was designed by the Eames as just that: an anything table! And look, it's mini-sized!
These fantastic modern classics are 15% off for just FIVE more days so order now!
We LOVE the Bench Box collection from Offi & Company... especially now that these great pieces are available in walnut as well as the classic birch! And with the addition of the BBox2 (or mini bench box, as we tend to call them), the possibilites endless.
On their own, the Bench Boxes are fantastic benches with handy storage spaces underneath. Choose legs or casters (or no supports if you're planning on building with the boxes), pad or no pad... and if you do choose a pad, you currently have THREE color options: Gray Wool, Alcazar, or Red Wool.
Here's the red pad on a birch Bench Box, with legs:
The NEW walnut is also pretty stunning! Imagine it at the foot of your bed... here. We can help you out:
So the pads on the Bench Boxes are obviously fantastic options. But don't forget about those minis! The little BBoxes are great on their own as side tables, or for YOUR mini to store her books, etc...
Now, put a couple minis together, plus a couple full-sized Bench Boxes, and voile! What a cool shelving unit, right?
