Dining and Side Chairs

Reee Chair

This chair is made in the UK from recycled Sony Playstation consoles. While it’s a little alarming that there’s enough Playstations to recycle into furniture, it’s nice to know that they become chairs instead of ending up in landfills. (Just so you know, the 2.4 kg of plastic saved/recycled is about 5.29 lbs.)

W 56 x D 47 x H 80 (cm)
Custom frame colours available for large orders.

Shadow Chair

This chair at first appears to balance only on its front legs. Clever.

A chair that integrates shadow into its structure…At first glance it is a simple chair that seems to defy gravity by standing upright while only having two front legs, but on closer inspection the shadow is part of the chair and made from steel, which is attached to a metal frame built inside the chair. Available in a number of finishes please contact us for more information

Supernatural Armchair

The Armchair version of the Supernatural Chair is way more of a head turner with those curvy arms…super nice.

“this new stackable chair has a structure that is the result of an evolution, more than of a design process. It represents a new vision of form, generated by digital data, resulting in a chair to be used every day, slender, lively and healthy. The liquid, organic nature of its form combines the beauty of the human anatomy with the most advanced process of industrialization of 21st-century polymers.” -Ross Lovegrove

Prince Charles Side Chair

Messing with a good thing can sometimes be disastrous, but other times it’s interesting and strange in a good way, which is the case of this interpretation of the Eames classic.

Modernica’s design studio has collaborated with artist Peter Shire to design the Prince Charles Chair based on the company’s Case Study Fiberglass shell chair and playfully named after the originator of the design, Charles Eames…The Prince Charles chair is an elegant and ironic juxtaposition – past and present. It is an innovative combination of two recognizable styles artfully embracing 300 years of furniture design into a single chair. This, along with the chair’s Queen Anne-like legs, which look like broken violin cut outs, prove opposites attract.

from $359.00-$469.00, depending on the seat selected (arm, shell or wire)

Scandia Series

I’m a little bit in love with this series by Hans Brattud.

The iconic Scandia Series was designed by Hans Brattud in 1957. During the 1970′s the factory in Norway burned down and was never rebuilt, therefore, putting Scandia out of production. In 2001, Norwegian manufacturer, Fjord Fiesta brought the series back. Working closely with Brattrud himself, they made sure that every detail of the original design was perfected.

Laminated Walnut. Satin chrome base.

Mr. Impossible Chair and Table #28

This Mr. Impossible chair is destined to become an iconic piece; its shape and comfort takes the humble plastic material into an elevated design form. Also, the other items pictured in the room view are worth a mention: the ribbed aluminum Table #28 is surprisingly versatile as its angular form provides shelves and can be used indoors or out, the Parametreā„¢ AccordiOn Screen would be perfect for a room divider as shown, and the String 10 Light is still (and perhaps will always be) such a stellar choice for accent lighting.

An inviting, durable, and comfortable chair, Mr. Impossible combines sophisticated design with advanced plastic processing. The transparent structure and the translucent colored seat are seamlessly welded together. Made by Kartell of polycarbonate.

Size: 32.5h x 21.5w x 16″d; Seat: 19″h

Cherish Chair

I’ve never felt all that excited about the color yellow, yet on this chair and a few other recent posts (like this lamp and the embroidery on this bedding) it seems to be growing on me…it just might be a great color accent for your otherwise monochrome room (if you have one, that is).

Reminiscent of a cherished design from the past, this solid timber chair displays a pared down silhouette – a perfect complement for today’s contemporary settings. Available in yellow lacquer.
