Panton Living Tower

Verner Panton created many innovative furniture pieces in the sixties and seventies, and the Living Tower is the most innovative of them all. A forerunner of the “micro-environments” trend which encouraged social interraction, the Living Tower was constructed of a wood frame upholstered with wool over foam padding.

Montana sectional sofa

I’m not sure how durable this thing is but it’s nice enough for the price.
“Cushions are constructed of a polyether foam and the suspension consists of a “no-sag” spring supported by rubber webbing. The Montana collection is covered in a rich “chocolate” fabric made of 100% polyester, and chrome feet add the perfect finishing touch. Chair and ottoman also available.”

It’s a short Rosewood Bench. It’s simple, has a lovely wood grain, and hopefully won’t break anybody’s bank.

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.

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.
