Get ‘a leg up’ on boho style with these quirky case goods

This leggy furniture is just the thing to add a bit of quirk to your boho home's décor. It's by Ad Hoc, a furniture and accessories workshop whose goods reflect its native Mexico’s artisan legacy and materials.

I love the beauty of the handcrafted wood, as well as the collection's clean, midcentury-modern lines. The one turned leg and mashup of aniline lacquer accents makes me smile every time I look at these pieces. They're truly destined to become modern-day classics.


First, meet Cantina

Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

She's made of tzalam wood and red cedar. A gray, mirrored tray-type shelf is positioned on the crossbraces for additional display. How do I know it's a she? Just trust me.

Check out the fine detailing...

Cantina would make the most PERFECT bar cabinet, don’t you think? She sure has ME singing. Mad Men, eat your heart out!


And here’s Antelmo

Sold as a set for use as a coffee table, each one of the three tables is fashioned in a different wood—banak, red cedar, and tzalam—and can be used separately or grouped.

Like Cantina, each table has one carved leg. The design of the turnings is based on a molnillo—a traditional Mexican chocolate whisk.


Next up is Pirinola

...Which includes a freestanding bookshelf and coordinating low stools (sold separately), both fashioned from oak.

Aniline dyes highlight one side of the bookshelf (also expertly turned), while two of four legs on each piece is tricked out in black.

Stool seats are crafted of knit palm.


Also check out Largo


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

This new offering breaks the mold with no less than seven legs, all turned.


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

One is highlighted in blue, with turnings offset from its neighbors.


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan

Largo is made of poplar and would make a great serving sideboard in a dining room, don’t you think?


Belly up to the bar with Banco Rodarte


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

These high-top stools are made of tzalam and accented with aniline lacquers.


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

They make a real statement on their own, don'tcha know...


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan

...or in a group.


Wait-wait, there’s more…


The Ad Hoc collection also includes some mainstream midcentury pieces (translation: no funk factor but still drop-dead gorgeous).


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

The stained areas of Lanúmero 2 are tzalam and poplar, while the gray-lacquered panels are MDF. The back is mirrored to reflect whatever you choose to display. I love how the woodgrain echoes the elegant cross-bracing and tapered legs.

The tzalam-wood N|N credenza is long and low and tricked out with smoked glass. It would be beautiful in an office or as a media center if you're lucky enough to have that one long wall to fill.


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

Librero is made of huanacaxtle wood and is an uber-stylish vehicle for displaying your books and what-nots.


There are some ‘leggy’ lights, too…


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

The Totah table lamp, made of tzalam and brass with a linen shade, can be used legs up…


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

…or on its knees. How clever!


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

The Alquisiras pendant also sports turned “legs.” It comes accented with blue, as shown above…


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

…or red, with cords to match!


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

..or choose a brass shade instead of matte black. Woods used are poplar and tzalam.


Finally, there’s the Plywood collection


BoHoHome.com @bohosusan
Gilda Villareal/Odette Villareal/AD HOC

But it doesn’t look like any plywood I’ve ever seen. The tray, trivets, desk light and tall cup are startling reinterpretations of common construction materials fashioned and finished to show off their naked beauty in simple forms.
