*Designer Review* Greene Concept Furniture

Standard

I had a few review copies sent to me about 2 weeks ago from Ivanova Shostakovich and Peter Stindberg of Greene Concept Furniture. I went ahead and popped into their shop, too, to see what I could see – the inventory is limited at this point to just the two pieces below, but there are quite a lot of textures available for each piece, so I’d say it’s worth a look.

The first piece is the Berliner Stool. Ivanova and Peter also tout it as a ‘sofa without backrest’. I could see it used as seating alone, or even as an overly large ottoman with a coordinating chair or sofa. It’s only 4 prims, which is great, and seats 4 people. From what I could tell in the store, the price of the Berliner varies depending on the fabric you choose: I saw $700L and $250L options – denim, cotton, suede, and a few more.

The other piece is the San Jose Bench. I do like the shape of this; it’s a bit different without being TOO different. As with the Berliner, the San Jose is available in a multitude of fabrics, which seem to be split into either $800L or $300L options. The piece is only 7 prims — again, awesome — and seats 5 avatars.

The textures are good quality — the tufting on the San Jose is really nice and very realistic, a well as the piping around the edge of some of the Berliner texture options. I also really like how the available textures are displayed. 🙂 Dear readers, you know I’m a sucker for a clever display!

Ivanova and Peter are advertising these pieces as ideal for lounges, offices, exhibition spaces, as well as private homes. I definitely agree – I really like the idea of the San Jose as the new conference table – it would be great in a setting for discussion forums or SL learning…I also think it would be a unique seating option for larger clothing/shoe stores. Possibilities abound. 😉

Thanks to Ivanova and Peter for sharing. Get over to Greene Concept and try ’em out!

  1. Thank you very much for this review, Elle. The pricing difference is actually between copy/no-trans and no-copy/trans items (all items are modifyable). The San Jose’s are 350 as transferable and 800 as copyable items – the Berlin’s go at 250 for trans and 700 for copy.

    Only yesterday we finished the “fat packs” for San Jose, where you can chose any available design via a menu. Those go at 800 for transfr and 1000 for copyable.

    We have a lot of items in the pipeline, and rather go for quality instead of mass, so stay tuned.

    Thanks again!

  2. I really like the design of the San Jose as it fits a good amount of people in a rather intimate way, but doesn’t take up as much space as say two couches and a chair, or a couch and two chairs. I’d say it was ideal seating for a smaller house if you want to maximize seating and are limited by prim counts as well.

    I can also see it fitting well into an awkwardly shaped room.
