Lounge Chairs

OFFI Perch Lounge

In a revisit to things posted way long ago (april ’05 to be exact), this Offi Lounge shows how years can change price tags (imagine that, prices increase over time). Despite any irritation you might feel in not buying something like this back then, rest assured that this is an extremely good chair, and it’s most likely worth every penny of today’s money.

This sleek chair looks incredible — pair up two next to each other for a symmetric modern look, and get some added storage as part of the bargain. Inspired by the functionality of old school chairs, the Perch Lounge has a softly contoured plywood shell with a fully upholstered pad. The shell sits atop a chrome rod frame with an elevated wire shelf for books, magazines, or a laptop. Combining a seat with storage, the Perch Lounge offers function without sacrificing comfort or looks.

Materials: Molded plywood with upholstered pad, chrome plated steel tube.
29 H x 25 W x 27 D

Ånge Chair

Elle Decoration (France) (see pic on right) featured this chair their November edition, and I’ve got to say it looked more expensive than what it is…altogether, a very impressive price for a rather stylish chair.

Handwoven; each piece of furniture is unique. Twisted paper provides a soft surface. Material properties similar to rattan.

designer: M Arvonen/E Johansson
Width: 37 “, Depth: 35 “, Height: 39 ”

Sponge Chair

Check out this wrinkly chair (that most of us will never be able to afford).

The “Sponge” chair represents the debut of young Dutch designer Peter Traag, a graduate of London’s Royal College. Its shape, inspired by sea sponges, is the result of a technological innovation that allows it to obtain a firm yet invitingly soft seat. Polyurethane foam has been injected directly into an overly large “upholstery” shell, which has been reinforced by a special fluorocarbon polyester thread. This production technique results in a unique chair, forming “elephant-skin” random folds that mimic a well-worn classic armchair.

Seatbelt Chair

Surprisingly, this chair was designed way back in ’05 and I’ve no idea why we haven’t posted it before. I like how it uses seatbelt scraps without weaving them together in a grid pattern (like so many other products).

FEEL Seating System

This is not something particularly new, but this is the first I’ve seen of the other sizes (the Single looks especially comfortable as a chair, and how cute is the Petit size?).

A seating system that reflects the ever changing emotional state of the body. The number of positions the Feel seat has is as wide as the imagination. You can sit on it, lay and relax or just lounge on it.

Feel Classic: 70″ x 63″ x 8″, $1899.00
Feel Deluxe: 70″ x 86″ x 8″, $2899.00
Feel Single: 31″ x 70″ x 8″, $799.00
Feel Young: 51″ x 63″ x 5.5″, $1499.00

The Avenue First Block / Parc

The stitch print on these ‘blocks’ would really give a feeling of texture to a room, and considering how easy the fabric is to care for it’s a no brainer for kids or pets.

The fatboy avenue can be arranged into any imaginable seating arrangement including an island, snake, or circle, providing you with your own personal lounge. The chic design is ideal for any space, from your office to your outdoor patio. The different shapes of the avenue include a square design, called the first avenue, and a quarter circle design, called the second avenue. Each of these models is available in a geometric stitch print, “the block”, or a floral stitch motif, “the parc.”

Material: Coated Polyester Cover, Polystyrene Foam Block.
Available in lime green, black, white, taupe, red and light blue.
23 x 23 x 18 1/2 (inches)

Scandia Series

I’m a little bit in love with this series by Hans Brattud.

The iconic Scandia Series was designed by Hans Brattud in 1957. During the 1970′s the factory in Norway burned down and was never rebuilt, therefore, putting Scandia out of production. In 2001, Norwegian manufacturer, Fjord Fiesta brought the series back. Working closely with Brattrud himself, they made sure that every detail of the original design was perfected.

Laminated Walnut. Satin chrome base.
Lead time of 8 weeks.

Swivel Chair (not shown) (29.5″w x 29.5″d x 33″h), $2,550.00
Nett Chair (26″w x 29.5″d x 33″h), $2,250.00
Senior Easy Chair w/black leather bolster (29.5″w x 29.5″d x 41.25″h), $2,950.00

Spring Chair

Yes, this is a reproduction of the PK20 Easy chair by Poul Kjaerholm. I won’t get into whether or not you should buy the original or the copy, because that’s your choice, but I will point out that this is approximately $6,000 less than the original.

The Spring Chair is a modern reproduction based on a Poul Kjaerholm classic. Features a stainless steel frame and your choice of woven natural cane or top, full grain black Italian leather.

34″L x 33″W x 36″H

$1,249.00 – $1,499.00, Buy it here.

Also, for anyone jonesing for the PK Chaise Lounge ($12,926.10 to $16,607.80), there’s a reproduction of that one as well for $1,875.00: Woven Hammock Chaise, Buy it here.

Alto Rocker by monte

Seems like more and more choices for the modern nursery are cropping up, and this rocker is one of the best options I’ve seen for seating (and the price isn’t too terrible either).

The alto rocker’s distinguishing features are its soothing and gentle rock and its tailored stitching. Similar in comfort, proportions and craftsmanship to the luca glider, the alto rocker also includes a removable lumbar pillow for extra support.
The longevity of the alto rocker’s soft and durable fabric and the handcrafted quality of the dark brown solid maple rocker base will bring your rocker from the nursery to any other room in the home.

Magnolia Lounge Chair

This chair subtly evokes a Halloween feeling for me, probably mainly due to the web-like base.

In his design for the Magnolia, Jacco Bregonje combines the best of two worlds: design and architecture. The organic shell seat is fully foam-filled and provides fantastic comfort. The metal base echoes the mathematic construction of the organic shape of the seat. The Magnolia is a beautiful piece of furniture whatever way you look at it an interplay between empty and full, hard and soft. A unique armchair that perfectly fits into the celebrated Artifort collection. A real eyecatcher for reception areas or the home.

Blofield Inflatable Chesterfield Seating

This is made out of the same material that’s used in life rafts, so you’ve got some degree of comfort in knowing that it will last a bit longer than perhaps other inflatable furniture you might be familiar with…in any case, it’s a great option for outdoors (if you don’t get a lot of wind, that is).

Gamper Bentwood Chairs

Made from tradtional bentwood components, these creative takes on the classic chair are something to see (and perhaps collect as funds permit?).

Martino [Gamper] studied sculpture and product design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna. He went on to do a Masters at the Royal College which he completed in 2000. His work is widely exhibited and he recently won the Wallpaper Magazine ‘Best Alchemist’ award in 2008. Behind each of his pieces is a story involving materials, techniques, people and places. He nurtures an interest in unwanted and disparate objects and by reworking furniture, which he finds on the streets, he creates mismatched families of objects.
Martino has travelled to the old Thonet factory in Croatia to see the bentwood components which he will use in his own inimitable and unexpected way. Three styles are available.
