Take a Line For a Walk Armchair

While this costs a pretty penny and then some, it sure is something. It reminds me of Jacobsen’s
Egg Chair, just more edgy/angular.

“characterized by angular lines, this armchair is constructed of a steel
frame covered with injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and
polyester fiber. the base consists of a lacquered steel tube, in rifle
brown and gray, and the footrest is chrome. comes in three different
styles: armchair, revolving armchair, and armchair with footrest.”

armchair: 30.3″w x 43.3″h x 35.3″d, $2,932.00
armchair with footrest: 30.3″w x 43.3″h x 49.5″d, $3,807.00
revolving armchair: 31.5″w x 43.3″h x 34.8″d, $4,026.00

De La Tour Chair

At this price, I could overlook the ‘inspired by’. This is a great choice for anyone on a budget.

“Inspired by an iconic Midcentury design, our wire chair is equal parts modern sophistication and organic comfort. Iron mesh construction adds both textural interest and a sense of transparency, resulting in a piece that simultaneously enhances and supports its surroundings. A true classic, you’ll love it defining a corner in your living room, pulled up to a desk in your office or grouped in 4 around a dining room table. Get wired! Imported. Wipe clean.”

Atmos Rocker

There aren’t necessarily a wide variety of modern rocking chairs out there, not to mention the green sort, so that’s why this one stands out quite a bit. I like the angle of the seat/back/neck- it reminds me of the
Omni Chair by Marten Claesson & Eero Koivisto.

“Atmos Chairs take their design cue from the simple utilitarian beauty of the Shaker tradition. The “ears” that jut out from the top of the chairs add a distinctive feature to these chairs. Atmos Chairs are a comfortable way to sit while satisfying our need to conserve resources. Their construction yields 8-10 times more usable wood from a log than solid lumber. Unless otherwise specified, the webbing is sourced from surplus stocks of automotive seat belts. The wood is European beech sustainably sourced from FSC certified forests; adhesives and finishes are water based. This product qualifies for LEED points. Suitable for all contract and residential applications.”

lex armchair

Somehow both minimal and grand in scale, the lex was introduced by Artifort during the Milan Furniture Fair 2004.

“ergonomical and functional comfort make the lex armchair exceptional, a step above other armchairs. the frugality of its design and its minimalism provide the sofa with a timeless elegance. its clear lines and qualities speak for themselves. the goal in designing this sofa was to maintain a sleek visual shape that would be both distinct and timeless.”

Sly Chair

This isn’t exactly a design classic, but there’s something really endearing about it. Perhaps it’s the reinterpretation of the 60′s view of modern furniture. It’s perfectly scaled and in a nice cotton/nylon blend.

Paulistano Armchair (Missoni Cover)

Truth be told, I absolutely love this chair. And now all you Missoni fans can go berserk because this chair now has a limited-edition, reversible cover by none other than Ms. Rosita Missoni herself.

“The frame, a continuous 17-foot piece of solid stainless steel, is shaped under 200 lbs of hydraulic pressure over 24 hours. The result is a sinuous structure welded in a single spot and wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather that will gain depth and luster as it ages. Exceptionally comfortable, the Paulistano flexes slightly and can be adjusted for upright or relaxed sitting positions by shifting the sling up or down the frame.”

Missoni reversible cover, 100% cotton.
Also available in vegetable-tanned full-grain, semi-aniline, double-sided leather.

Chair #1.2 by Yuichiro Nishizawa/everyspace

I love this chair. It’s two identical pieces of wood which can be assembled to form a chair, and can be disassembled to be put away. The notches can be used to hang the chairs on the wall if you like.

Certified Canadian maple, zero formaldehyde emission glue, water-base clear coat finish.

White Fishnet (limited edition), 2006

I love, love, love this chair. Too bad it’s got the ‘price available on request’ tag- that pretty much means that I definitely can’t afford it.

“This chair is hand-made by Marcel Wanders through his studio in the Netherlands, in a limited edition of 20 pieces. A Certificate of Authenticity is provided.”

materials: aramid and carbon fibers; epoxy
