JW-01 Chair

Nice walnut stacking chair on sale.
“When Jakob Wagner designed the JW-01 Chair he wasn’t only thinking how to create a sublime sense of balance with disparate elements. He was addressing how to design a chair at once beautiful and nearly indestructible, vividly comfortable yet functional for home as well as public spaces. Wagner’s talent for fusing engineering with aesthetic grace, solving the needs of the human body to find shelter in a seat, is exemplified by the JW-01. The seat back undulates gently to embrace the torso. The ample seat, with its waterfall edge, curves away from the thigh for optimal comfort. The sleigh-style stainless steel legs, 12mm solid yet thin, establish balance that is essential for secure sitting. The chairs can be stacked without damage.”

Verner Panton new matte s chair

I know this is nothing new but I thought I’d add it to the pile of great chairs that are reasonably priced. I’ve always seen this in a dining set but I’m toying with the idea of getting it for an office chair. Mind you, this is probably not the most ergonomic chair for sitting at for hours but if you’ve got a desk where you sit to pay bills or check email, it might just work.

Measurements: H” 33.5″/ 16.5″ seat x W 19.75″ x D 22.75″

Available in white, red (this is a reddish/orange color), yellow, and blue.

flipt lounge chair

I was wondering when someone would do this well. It’s a lounge chair that morphs seamlessly into a chaise lounge.

“the flipt was presented by the designer jeff miller for the first time during the 2003 international furniture fair and developed by baleri italia in 2005. this chair has a steel structure, foamed polyurethane seat and a chromed steel base. flipt is a lounge chair that, when called into action (or lack thereof) becomes a chaise lounge. with a simple and intuitive movement the double seat flips forward, opening up and thus doubling the length of the chair. when flipt is open in its chaise lounge configuration, the curve of the seat does not show any visible break, but instead repeats itself with fluidity and becomes an elegant and comfortable wave. this original and innovative solution allows the chair to save space when it is closed in its lounge state, and to not look like a folding chair when it is open. ”

dimensions : when folded 31.4” h x 38.5”w x 22”d; when extended 31.4”h x 75”w x 22”d

Coco Chair

In this day and age of spending $200-$400 (or more) on a dining chair, I truly hope that people actually like what they buy. It’s certainly hard for me to imagine dropping thousands of dollars to seat 6 people, but when I think about if and when I do, the chair/ chairs would certainly have to meet some requirements. Which brings me to the point of this particular chair. It’s stylish, simple, and durable. And, this might sound silly, but I really like the fact that the barrel backrest/armrest can be hung on a tabletop so you can easily sweep underneath (I hate sweeping around chairs, or moving them aside).

So. There you go.

“A single piece of solid beech wood acts as both the back leg and backrest support to provide maximum strength. Available in a versatile stained ebony, as well as a striking red. The lacquer is repeatedly applied for a thick, consistent finish.”

Ceylon Sofa

What’s this? A modern sofa under $1000? My antennae go up when I hear these words, and I have to say that often I’m disappointed with quality or else the “modern” style is way overdone. Not in this case though. I’m a big fan of the bench seat and square arms, and the aluminum legs add a nice contemporary touch to the overall style. It’s a good deal in my book.

•Kiln-dried hardwood frame
•Flexolator spring system
•Cotton/poly blend upholstery in mocha with topstitch details
•Solid brushed aluminum legs
•Four square pillows across the back

86″Wx35″Dx35″H (18.25″H seat).

Lublin Lounge Chair

Wow. The wood on this piece has a great glow (the result of a rubbed finish sealed with a clear varnish).

“The LL2 Lounge Chair deconstructs the ubiquitous upholstered lounge chair to its skeletal essence. The chair becomes a cage-like enclosure, implying a solid form but exposing the colorful wool fabric cushions. Made of solid wood with glass inserts at the top and bottom of the armrests to provide functional horizontal surfaces.

MEBEL’s wood is sealed with a clear varnish, which creates a natural rubbed finish. Unlike sprayed glossy lacquer, their pieces do not have an assembly line look or feel. This process also creates a durable surface which is easy to maintain. There is no need to use polish, cleaning with a damp cloth is best. Metal used is fully welded stainless steel tubing with a brushed finish. The dimensions for the storage cutout are 4″ high, by 24″ wide and run from the front of the piece, through to the back.”

This is really not a bad price for a sectional. And what’s great about it is that you can buy different pieces for different configurations.

“Umpteen combinations. One great neutral. It’s a chair, it’s a chaise. It’s a loveseat, it’s a twelve-seat. It’s a U, it’s an L. It’s a bird, it’s a plane. It’s super, man. Fearless salt-and-pepper microfiber with the touch of suede. Studio or loft, add on an Annex.”

Oasis Sofa

Nowadays, if perusing the market for a decent sofa, there isn’t much to choose from in the modernist’s middle-of-the-road budget. That’s why it’s really nice to run across a quality product for less than a grand. This particular sofa has clean, simple lines and a nice microfiber fabric to keep any spills from causing a catastrophe.

•Kiln-dried solid hardwood frame
•Dense foam core cushions wrapped in soft poly batting
•Sinuous wire spring suspension in back, Perma-Eze grid in seat
•Removable solid maple legs with dark finish

Fortunata Modern Sofa

Hmm. I think this sofa is a good choice if you are on a limited budget…it’s also completely customizable (if that’s a word) with a variety of microfiber, leather and other fabrics to choose from. Apparently you can also change the “size and shape of any piece to suit your needs”. Not a bad deal.

Becca Stools

I feel more zen-like by just looking at this chair. Whatever that means.

“Like a light-boned, graceful bird, the Becca Stool seems only momentarily perched. It strains upward, ready to take to the sky again and glide away. You almost feel that you have to sit down on it to keep it from escaping, but the fine craftsmanship of this stool makes that a pleasure. And for when you’re not at home, you can keep it weighted down by using the bottom as a shelf for extra (stylish) storage.”
