Smock Chair by Patricia Urquiola

The Smock collection shows such detail and intricacy with fabric yet it has an otherwise modern and simple silhouette…if I had loads of cash, I’d probably already own this or any one of Urquiola’s other pieces, but for now I’ll have to make do by pretending I have my pick.
“patricia urquiola loves playing with textures, as you can see in her smock line of furniture. urquiola bunches up the upholstery around hoops and round frames, giving the smock line a modern look with a rich and almost antique feel.”
steel frame covered in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam. chromed or varnished arms. sofa back cushions stuffed with goose down. underfeet in synthetic rubber.
