Lounge Chairs

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.
