Lounge Chairs

Pelican Chair

Seeing that we’re all usually up for saving some money, you might be interested to know that DWR is having their annual sale on upholstery and rugs. A quick peruse through their offerings and I kept getting caught on the Pelican Chair (1940). Curves and comfort are words that spring to mind, and of course, you just can’t go wrong with a piece designed by the architect and designer Finn Juhl. While his furniture is certainly in the ‘investment piece’ price range, you can possibly save a good chunk of change from now until the end of August.

And, if the Pelican Chair isn’t quite your cup of tea, there’s several other iconic pieces to set your sights on. Check it out: 15% off at DWR’s Upholstery and Rug Sale.

“A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself.” -Finn Juhl

Bufa Chair

What do we have here? Felt, stainless steel, and accordion-like sides… hmm. Inspired by tailored attire, the sides of this chair are threaded together with rope, presumably allowing for some adjustment. The idea of felt being transformed from flat 2D surface to a 3D form is nothing new, yet this chair utilizes elements of fashion to make an impressively stitched and very ‘this season’ seating option.

Neutra Boomerang Chair

House Industries is now taking deposits for the second edition of the Neutra Boomerang Chair. I’m sure you can see the boomerang-shaped veneered plywood frame, from which it gets its name, but for historical relevance you might be interested to know that Richard Neutra designed this chair for the interiors of the Channel Heights Housing Project (San Pedro, California) in 1942.

Available in maple or walnut with black or natural webbing.
25.5″w x 31.5″d x 29.75″h

Magis Spun Chair

This chair made the rounds after its launch at Salone del Mobile, but it wasn’t until I saw the production pics and the video did I fully appreciate the design. Thomas Heatherwick (of recent UK Pavillion fame) was inspired by the craft of large scale metal spinning used to make Timpani drums. Using a rotationally symmetrical form, the Spun Chair appears to be more sculpture when upright, yet when lent on its side, it becomes a comfortable and playful chair. This version of the chair by Magis (shown above) is made of plastic rather than metal, which means it can be used outdoors and eventually recycled.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick and manufactured by Magis.

Pallet Chair and Table

Is anyone reminded of Studio Mama’s pallet furniture plans? If you were intrigued by the plans, but not the DIY type, you’ll be happy to see these, especially considering there are surface color options. When both table and chair are folded flat they can stack together for storage.

Pumpkin Chairs

If exclusive items are your sort of thing, then maybe you’ll be interested to hear that Ligne Roset is celebrating their 150th anniversary by offering this special edition of the Pumpkin chair by Pierre Paulin. With only 150 in each color (red or blue wool), and only 42 of those available in the US market, you better put your name down quick if you want one for your own home. Originally this chair was designed for the drawing rooms of the Elysee Palace in 1971.

Tavares Chair, White

Just yesterday I updated the post of this chair from last year, as the price had increased from just under $700.00 to $1,459.00. Now, I’ve no idea how MoMA has the price of $825.00, but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than $1,500.00. Plus, knowing that it can go outdoors as well is all the more reason to snap it up.

Designer: Marco Sousa Santos
Suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
25h x 27.5w x 23″d

Spark Lounge Chair

This affordable (and colorful) lounge chair is from the same designer that did the Aeron and Chadwick chairs (both task chairs for those of you that didn’t know already). Surprised? I am. With all the tilts and levers and stuff on the latter two, this chair seems quiet and unassuming in comparison, except for the color choices, of course. It’s lightweight (polypropylene) and stackable, which makes it a good choice for a multi-purpose space.

Designed by Don Chadwick.
Stacks six high.
30.5″h x 25.5″w x 25.5″d

Lamino Chair

Pretty much every time I walk by the Skandium Store near my flat I see this chair. It’s lovely in person, just as it seems in the photos, with quiet lines and impeccable craftsmanship, plus it’s comfortable (as all lounge chairs should be). Voted the Twentieth Century’s ‘Best Swedish Furniture Design’, it’s sure to be a piece that you won’t get tired of.

Dune Grande Lounge

This fiberglass shell chair looks like a mid century classic went through some kind of warp zone, doesn’t it? At just about 4 feet wide, it’ll not go unnoticed as a seating option, that’s for sure. And don’t fret if you’re short on space; there’s a slightly smaller (and less stretched) version available (shown below).

Dune Grande Lounge: $1,895.00 (49.25w x 34d x 24.5h inches)

We previously mentioned Loll’s fantastic Adirondack Chair, and are quite happy to announce their new COCO chair, a very Eames-inspired modern lounge chair available in six different colors. It’s made from 100 percent post consumer recycled plastic and weatherproof, so don’t be afraid to bring it outside now that spring’s right around the corner.

Designer: Christopher Douglas
Colors: black, chocolate, sky, apple, leaf, white
Material: 100 post consumer recycled plastic, “made from 184 milk jugs”

FLY easy chair

Indoor or outdoor, this chair has some style. The knitted fabric reminds me of the Slow Chair, but, of course, this chair is a little more angular to be mistaken for its sibling. The cantilevered seat makes me wonder how much ‘give’ it has when you sit in it; does it bounce a little perhaps?

Designer: Patrick Norguet
Available in Black, Green, Brown.
Dimensions: h:710mm, s:410mm, w:710mm, d:720/400mm

Bokja Vintage Bucket Chair

While the price of this chair might scare you more than the fabric does, it’s an excellent example of how a rather normal chair can become completely crazy with the right (or wrong) choice of fabric. Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hubri of Bokja Design use all sorts of fabrics to revitalize vintage finds, and if you’re not familiar with their work, it’s worth a glance just to see the variety of textiles. All pieces are handmade by traditional craftsmen, and the vintage textiles used are from Uzbekistan, central Asia, and other countries along the Silk Road. Take a look at Bokja’s products and believe me, you’ll certainly find inspiration (and courage?) for reupholstering any of your current threadbare furniture.

dimensions: 31″w x 26″d x 28″h x 16″sh.

Domus Lounge Chair

While this chair was designed in 1946, I can’t say that I’ve seen it around that much. Now, the Domus Chair, sure, that’s no stranger, but the curvy lounge chair pictured above is brand new to my eyes. The black stained version has my name written all over it (you just can’t see it because the text is so small, ha ha).

“The characteristic Domus Lounge Chair was designed, alongside the Domus chair, for the public spaces at the Domus Academica’s student housing.”

Designed by Iilmari Tapiovaara
