Mademoiselle Rocking Chair

Truly one of the more elegant and interesting rocking chairs, this design by Ilmari Tapiovaara is a testament to how traditional furniture can be updated and improved upon.

Tapiovaara designed the Mademoiselle in 1956 as a comfortable refinement of the traditional chairs found in many Scandinavian homes at that time. The Rocker’s spindles and plank seat echo early American Windsor chairs, and even Shaker chairs, but with a unique sculptural form. Rather than using four stretchers to support the legs, Tapiovaara designed a different solution: When the Rocker is seen from the side, a composition of triangles appears that’s both functional and aesthetically unique. Tapiovaara gave the chair an extra-deep rock by extending the back rails.

Solid birch with white paint.

Nube Armchair

The sculptural form created by the curved seat and boxed frame is emphasized nicely by the thin chrome legs.

Right angles combine with sensuous curves in the design of the Nube Armchair (2008). Jon and Jesús Gasca’s Armchair is a startlingly simple and architectural structure that can be viewed from any angle. With contrasting colors (one color for the angular parts, a different tone for the curved) and an exposed, chromed steel frame, the Nube works individually or grouped.

Chromed steel; foam; Kvadrat Divina upholstery, 100% wool.

031 lin pod bench

This is slightly reminiscent of something you might find in a doctor’s or dentist’s waiting room, if the doctor or dentist was unbelievably cool. If you buy this, you might have to pretend to be unbelievably cool, otherwise it just won’t work. Trust me.

Slender contours of upholstery fluidly move from one feature to the next. the backrest slopes downward to the seat which extends outward to contain a pot of greenery. By placing plant life in such an intimate position, Lin Pod Bench creates a peaceful atmosphere that connects us more deeply with nature. A solid wood leg frame raises the upholstered form, enhancing the inherent visual levity.

Design Leif.designpark, 2007.
Offered in traditional oiled oak, white oiled oak or traditional oiled Walnut. Upholstered in your choice of cotton or wool upholstery.
