Barrington Chair

You know that feeling you get when you see someone really cute and you can’t get them out of your head for days, even weeks? That’s what’s happened with me and Studio Dunn’s Barrington Chair. Yes, I’m crushing on a chair. I wrote a haiku about it…

Vienna Side Chair

It’s pretty amazing that Thonet’s first bentwood chair was designed in 1859, especially considering how popular it still is. Plus, this particular chair is very affordable at $120, and you can rest easy knowing it’s produced in one of the original Thonet bentwood chair factories.

Dazzle Chair

Oh, dear Bertjan Pot, how he never ceases to amaze and wonder. The Random Light, the Carbon Chair, the Lazy Bastard. So much goodness. And now the Dazzle stacking chair, apparently named in reference to the Dazzle painting used on ships extensively during World War I.

Table Bench Chair Series

It’s three in one. Sam Hecht got the idea of combining several seating options while he was traveling on the Tokyo subway. A communal bench was the starting point, and lucky for us, this Table Bench Chair series is where he ended up. Traditional bent birch frames and solid oak slabs makes each piece seem worlds away from the commercial plastic benches we’re all familiar with, yet both might share the experience of slight discomfort if sat upon for long periods of time.

Chair: $1,760.00
Bench (shown above): $3,020.00

Glare Chair

Zzzzz! If I could wolf-whistle, I would. Talk about sleek and sexy, this chair’s got it in spades*.

Another one from the mind of Filipe Alarco. The glare chair with is aerodynamic design comes to life in a shiny high gloss white finish bringing the latest trend in glossy pieces to a new level. This chair has a profile appealing enough to stand alone as a design accent but also fits beautifully in sets populating the modern dining room.

Dimensions: H21/18 x W18/16 x D16 in (H80/44,5 x W46,5/40 x D40 cm)

*Too bad the price turns me off… why so high? It’s the eternal question.
