Paulistano Armchair (Missoni Cover)

Truth be told, I absolutely love this chair. And now all you Missoni fans can go berserk because this chair now has a limited-edition, reversible cover by none other than Ms. Rosita Missoni herself.

“The frame, a continuous 17-foot piece of solid stainless steel, is shaped under 200 lbs of hydraulic pressure over 24 hours. The result is a sinuous structure welded in a single spot and wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather that will gain depth and luster as it ages. Exceptionally comfortable, the Paulistano flexes slightly and can be adjusted for upright or relaxed sitting positions by shifting the sling up or down the frame.”

Missoni reversible cover, 100% cotton.
Also available in vegetable-tanned full-grain, semi-aniline, double-sided leather.

H 33″ W 27.5″ D 27.5″

Olivia Chair

Holy moly, this is such a smart idea. Previously a folding wooden chair, now it’s got a few special abilities. Available from
reestore, a store whose aim is to “take everyday waste objects and cheekily turn them into charming yet functional pieces of furniture and accessories.” Worth taking a look at their collection.

‘Olivia is our first design to consist primarily of an “off the shelf” product. Her modified coat-hanger style backrest allows for unruffled jacket slinging and olivia doesn’t take offence at being reduced to size and hung out of sight.’

Abby Sofa

Here’s a pretty nice sofa that won’t break the bank.

“Lustrous black and cream tweed, pristine lines and buttoned-back detailing all contribute to the mid-century mystique of this modern beauty and communicate “grown up” in a very hip way. That’s why you’ll find it as at home in a spacious condo or loft as in a vintage ranch or salon. High density foam on hardwood frame. Upholstery and bolsters, included, in polyester/viscose. Contemporary stainless steel legs.”

Common Chair

This chair is made from scrap hardwood, ensuring that each one is slightly different. It might set you back a fair chunk of change, but it will surely be something that you’ll hold on to for years to come.

“Using Canadian hardwoods gathered from Toronto area studios and manufacturers, the Common Chairs are made by hand and assembled at random so that each chair is unique. Finished using a water based, zero VOC finish.”

Prouve Standard Chair

Despite my tendency to buy black furniture, I’m really liking the different color options of the Prouve Standard Chair…it might take some time to save up for several, but just one in any of the colors would really make a strong statement.

“Tubular steel piping is enough for the front legs that take relatively little strain, whereas the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections and pass the strain on to the floor.”

I love, love, love this chair. Too bad it’s got the ‘price available on request’ tag- that pretty much means that I definitely can’t afford it.

This might look good in an entry way, or perhaps several lining a wall would look nice in a large space.
