Inspired by the stackable midcentury planters of Estelle and Erwine Laverne, Silver Lake designers Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning have created a lightweight metal side table and stool that does double duty inside or out. With a dash of French deco flair, the piece ($325 as shown here) has a top and base made from ivory-colored steel set on an unfinished copper pedestal. Custom colors are available. Lawson-Fenning, 7257 Beverly Blvd., L.A., (323) 934-0048, and 1618 Silver Lake Blvd., L.A.; (323) 660-1500; www.lawsonfenning.com.
