Lounge Chairs

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.

Check out the subtle crook of the legs and the way the leather wraps around the frame- it’s little details like those that make me understand the price tag. Plus, I like how it looks hefty.

Bernard Sofa, Chair

I don’t know why it seems that the simpler modern sofas are more expensive, but I think something like this would be worth the price.

Available with either a stainless frame or a straight leg version. The chair is also available as a more compact version with a powder coated swivel base.”

Kara Lounge Chair

This lounge chair doesn’t have a pedigree, but the legs are certainly reminiscent of Paul Kjaerholm’s Springing Chair. If you don’t mind owning a referential piece, then this chair may not be a bad choice.

In the Round ‘Stitch’ Chair

Remarkable in its upholstery technique, this chair would be sure to garner some attention from your guests.

‘This chair was named after the technique of knitting sleeves or socks “In the Round.” In order to upholster a chair completely with only one knit sleeve, the tubular steel frame had to be formed in one continuous line that closes in a loop. Careful attention was paid to the seat so that enough surface area would ensure comfort. Thirty feet, or nine meters, of sleeve is required to upholster one chair.’

Stitch version (shown): $2200 (available in multiple colours including brights)
Striped version in felted wool: $2600 (available in solids)

Width 25″ Depth 28″ Height 27″ Seat Height 15″
