When it first appeared in 2000, Philippe Starck's Bubble Club seemed a strange hybrid: a 21st century plastic seat with the roll arms of a 19th century chair. Now, with the advent of Minimalist Baroque styling in home decor, it makes real sense. Until July 29, the weatherproof piece by Kartell, regularly priced at $680, is on sale for $408 at Design Within Reach. The Sunbrella cushion, shown here in parrot green, is reduced 15%, to $102. The chair and cushion coordinate nicely with the Pix cafe table, a quick-assembly 2002 design by Peter Schaffner that consists of two X-shaped legs held together by a 31 1/2 -inch table top that snaps onto the base like a lid. The cafe version in green, shown here, is marked down to $98, from $250. To order or to find a retail location: (800) 944-2233 or www.dwr.com.
