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).

Gus* Modern has added a new dining collection to its repertoire. Looks good and the price seems competitive to other (quality) dining tables.

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

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)

Sebastian 3-Seater

If the floral cushions on this sofa are a tad too retro for your taste, you might consider the solid cream option…also, there’s a matching 2-Seater, 4-Seater and sofa chair.

The clean lines and minimal design of the Sebastian provides comfort and elegance that is sure to be a classy addition to any room. Upholstered with luxurious imported Italian fabric, the Sebastian is available in a choice of cream or cream/floral back cushion.

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

Drop Stool by Zuo Modern

This is a great price for a stool; it reminds me of a nicer wooden version (see below).

Available in Black, White, Orange, Red, or Green
ABS formed body with high gloss enamel.
22 x 22 x 19″H

$138.00, Buy it here.

(Update: so I found the wooden stool- it’s the Tahiti Stool…but after looking at it a little more it doesn’t have the same seat indentation and the back rise is higher, so it has less resemblance that first thought.)

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.

Mr. Impossible Chair and Table #28

This Mr. Impossible chair is destined to become an iconic piece; its shape and comfort takes the humble plastic material into an elevated design form. Also, the other items pictured in the room view are worth a mention: the ribbed aluminum Table #28 is surprisingly versatile as its angular form provides shelves and can be used indoors or out, the Parametreā„¢ AccordiOn Screen would be perfect for a room divider as shown, and the String 10 Light is still (and perhaps will always be) such a stellar choice for accent lighting.

An inviting, durable, and comfortable chair, Mr. Impossible combines sophisticated design with advanced plastic processing. The transparent structure and the translucent colored seat are seamlessly welded together. Made by Kartell of polycarbonate.

Size: 32.5h x 21.5w x 16″d; Seat: 19″h

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.
