Tough Love: Cube Cabinet by Pieter Maes

We could just sit and stare at this Cube Cabinet, by designer Pieter Maes, all day long. The cubes give it such dynamic dimension, and there's a really nice balance to it. Unfortunately, we have to give it some tough love for its un-TreeHugger materials. Make this baby with some FSC-certified plywood or our old favorite bamboo, with VOC-free finishes, and we'd be falling over ourselves to give it the full TreeHugger endorsement; until then, we'll have to admire it from afar and dream of a version that puts the health of the planet and its user higher on the list. After the jump: two more stunning designs that don't quite make the TreeHugger grade. ::Pieter Maes via ::Design Milk
