pierre paulin tongue chair

I think this chair would make a great chair for reading. The back is tilted just enough to get comfortable but not so much that you’ll fall asleep.
Designed by Pierre Paulin in 1967.
Tubular steel frame, upholstery.
Made in Holland by Artifort.

Flight Recliner (Leather)

So, this is an excellent option for a nice recliner too. It might require a little bit more of a price adjustment in your furniture budget, but it sure does look good for being what it is.

“With its small footprint and elevated seat, it’s a chair that provides economy of form with body-appropriate proportions on a scale that suits users of all sizes. .”

There’s also an option to order this in wool, and that makes the price a little more friendly for you.

Havana Sofa

It’s a sleeper sofa! It’s refreshing to see a truly modern sofa hide the practicality of a sleeper so well.

(Also, right now DWR is having their Upholstery Sale and there is free standard shipping for a limited time.)

“Offering the island-like sanctuary of a large chaise lounge, the versatility of a sofa bed, and the storage of a cupboard, the Havana Sofa readily adapts to the complex demands of modern living… Expanded completely, it is ready to serve as a full-sized daybed or bed in which, with a turn of the body, armrests become the foot- and headboards. The seat base doubles as a full storage compartment (accessible when the sofa is upright), the perfect hideaway for bedding or extra seat cushions.”

And, if that’s not enough, the upholstery is bouclé blend. I heart bouclé.

Tracy Recliner

Recliners are usually a dirty word with aesthetically-conscious individuals, and I am one to raise my hand and admit to being frightened when someone mentions the word. Yet, there are decent modern-ish reliners out there, and we’ll find at least one or two for all of you that have lost hope. Here’s one: the Tracy has clean lines and a very nice silhouette (trust me, go look), not to mention a very comfortable two postition recliner mechanism. Lots of other good stuff too: kiln-dried hardwood frame, top grain, semi aniline leather (that just means it’s top quality and will last a whole lot longer than something cheap). So compromise is possible- your significant other (or yourself) can finally rest in peace without sacrificing style.

Grand Prix Sofa

This sofa is intended for children, but I think it would do quite well as a chair. Two or three would work well together for some low seating and wouldn’t break the bank.

Mummy chair

I really like these Mummy chairs. Wrapped in polyester ribbon, these bent beech-wood chairs add humor and maybe even sort of a high art feel, if you could call it that. (If anyone chooses to recreate, I’d love to see pictures.) Seat and backrest are padded with polyurethane foam.

Designed by Peter Traag.

Available in black or red.

Magino Acrylic Stool/Magazine Rack

Worth noting is this little acrylic stool/magazine rack by none other than Karim Rashid. It can hold up to 200 pounds! That’s something. It’ll hold your magazines or other riffraff while still kind of blending into it’s environment. Better still, it’s under $300.00.

Ghost Chair

This is a spectacular piece. I saw one at Issey Miyake in Tokyo and it had a sign in it that said “no sitting”, so I can’t report on the comfort level. For me I believe the main comfort issue would be the knowledge that I’m sitting in a glass chair. Obviously it’s more of an “impact piece” than something you’ll want to lounge around in, but it really is breathtaking in person.

Chaos chair

Look at these crazy chairs! It’s upholstered polyurethane with polyester filling. The cover can be made with your own material. That means you pick out fabric or leather from anywhere in the world and you give it to them. They’ll make the cover for you. Nice.

Figure Stool

Made out of solid mango wood, this little stool could be considered a steal for the price. Yesterday I saw something really very quite similar for about four times as much. It had a little bit more character to it, and a slightly different shape, but I’m guessing if you’re pinching pennies certain sacrifices are necessary.

Chair One

The Chair One looks like something made in the 80’s intended to look like it was made in 2020. Whatever decade it was actually made in, I love this chair. It’s weather-proofed so it would look equally great indoors or outdoors.

an exceptionally versatile indoor/outdoor seating system, the chair is one of the most original and important seating designs to come along in years. chair legs are polished anodized aluminum and seats are die-cast aluminum, cataphoretically-treated and painted in red, white or anthracite polyester powder. a concrete base version is available as well as swivel and public seating variations. the concrete base is painted transparent clear.
