Lounge Chairs

Bottoni Slim

I love the slim arms on the Bottoni line by Marcel Wanders. It really adds an edge of sophistication.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Bottoni collection, the concept is that you can change the look of a piece by switching out “plaids” by attaching them to the buttons. Plaids can be attached to each model using Buttons and are available in 5 unique patterned fabrics.

The Bottoni collection is available in three different models: standard, slim and shelf. You can order each model in four different sizes.

24.4″ h | 35.8″ w | 33.8″ d

Woolly Chair

This is obviously* more of a ‘hey, look at this’ than a ‘omg-this-will-make-your-life-better’ post, though the description will have you believing otherwise.

Jason Miller creates something prehistoric in the woolly chair, a seat that that furniture will ponder and feel ancestrally drawn to. Seemingly upholstered by a mythical Beastie (the fur-like creature, of fairy origins, whose sole purpose is to comfort), it is decadent and playful, a Jason Miller standard.

Risom Rocker

Jens Risom, perhaps best known for his Lounge Chair (you know, the one with woven straps) has designed an upholstered rocker that looks decidedly mid century yet feels current somehow (perhaps that’s the magic of classic Danish modernism?).

The Risom Rocker (2009) has a nine-button tufted back; a nod toward the classic Danish modern aesthetic that can be found in all of Risom’s work. Made in U.S.A.

* A high back supports your head while you rock.
* The armrests are sculpted for comfortable support.
* A hidden counterweight in the front rail helps ensure a smooth, deep rock.

Materials: Solid walnut frame; Maharam Milestone fabric, 78% post-industrial recycled polyester, 15% polyester, 7% nylon.
H 39″ D 36″ W 29″ Arm H 24.5″

Design House Stockholm Cloud Chair

Ooo, I remember seeing this years(?) ago, perhaps in its initial design phase, and being utterly disappointed that I couldn’t post it because it wasn’t available to purchase yet. Now it is, thankfully, though I’m sure it has been for some time and I just missed it. Please take note that the chair adjusts to each person’s comfort; the seat becomes the back and vice versa depending on the angle of recline you prefer.

Lisa Widén’s idea to create the Cloud chair was born sitting on an airplane looking down at the clouds below. The thought of being able to lounge around on soft and fluffy clouds inspired her to create this soft, comfy and playful upholstered easy chair with a black metal support frame. The Cloud chair is easily adjustable, meaning that the seat can become the back support and vice versa. This enables everyone, regardless of height or size, to find their own favorite position.

Dimensions: 22.25″w x 28.9″h, and 39″l

Parlour Chair from CB2

Does anyone have parlours anymore? I know I don’t, but I guess that doesn’t stop me from appreciating this little chair.

Fresh tangerine slubby weave is no slouch on bona fide living room chair inspired by our thing for Danish design. Barrel arms curve in a warm minimalist hug that looks great from all angles. Clean tapered back offsets deep comfy cushion.

Agung Chair

I’ve no idea why the retailer in Europe has it marked so much lower than the US one, but this chair is quite lovely. Maybe it’s not the best choice for anyone short on floorspace, but its curves certainly command a long glance and look to hold a person comfortably.

ODEChairs by Jolyon Yates

Q collection Junior Alberto Winged Glider

It seems like I know a bajillion couples that are having or have had babies this year, and if they should happen to call upon my expertise of available rockers online, I shall recommend this one.

It rocks and swivels, it’s cozy and wide and of course it’s friendly to the environment too. Perfect for a lullaby, story time or a cup of coffee and a good book, this Winged Glider can hold parent and child together (or several children at once) and will quickly become the favorite chair in your home.
The Alberto Glider is inspired by traditional wing chairs which in early American homes were meant to protect the lounger from a draft. This Winged chair envelopes the lounger and quiets the noise of the everyday bustle.

The slipcover (made of 100% Belgian Linen) is easily removable, machine washable and tailored. A hidden zipper along the back seam allows for the cover to be removed quickly.
Slipcover available in three colors: Cloud, Pebble or Twig.

Peacock Armchair by Cappellini

It’s never a good sign when you have to call in order to get the price on a chair, but this one is worth highlighting despite its lack of available information. It’s pretty new, so hopefully within the next week or two there will be a price posted.

Function meets poetry with this piece made entirely of a single sheet of felt wrapped over a metal base varnished in dark brown. A beautiful, comfortable and inviting chair.

Tavares Chair

Wow, when I saw this at ICFF I thought it would be way more expensive than it is (because usually all super modern sleek chairs command a hefty price tag).

Developed by request of a landmark Lisbon restaurant bearing the same name, the Tavares chair is an object of thoughtful geometric lines, a “Shell” as a chair. Built in black steel, its forms reveal the the simplicity of an object that integrates with its surrounding architecture defining a common space identity.

Dimensions: H25/14.6 x W22.8 x 28 in (H64/37 x W58 x D71 cm)
