Iker’s new line of stackable maple chairs ($499 each)

Poland isn’t exactly the bastion of furniture design that Italy is, but one local company, IQMatics, is giving furniture coming out of the former Eastern Bloc country a serious look. The main player there is the manufacturer Iker, which IQMatics represents exclusively in North America. The lines are slick, and new items, like these hip stackable chairs, come in regularly. 1224-A N. Roselle Rd., Schaumburg, 847-885-3600; iqmatics.com.
