Don Lounge Chair and Ottoman Set

This chair is currently discounted about a $1000. I want one now.

“Comfort in seating is harder to achieve on a small scale, but the Don Lounge Chair (1999) by Gerard van den Berg exceeds all expectations. As part of the chair’s studied proportions, a high, angled back supports the head and neck while allowing for a slight recline. The seat widens at the knee to allow for different seating positions and for use with the coordinating ottoman. Cushions with internal spring suspension provide even support and hold their form. Buttery soft leather upholstery is precisely tailored to have taut, straight seams and long-lasting appearance retention. The steel hairpin sleigh base was specifically designed to support the Don while maintaining a graceful aesthetic. Made in the Netherlands. “

BDB604 Chaise

Maybe it’s not the most imaginative name for a chaise, but I think it’s a steal for the price.

BC252 Leather and Chrome Sofa

So, for those of you looking for a contemporary sofa, you might consider this one. It’s got nice lines to it and a decent price point. While I’m personally not a fan of lime leather, I could see it looking okay in the right setting (but mostly I recommend the black leather).

Available in lime or black leather

Aero Lounge Chair

To find an outdoor lounge chair under $250 is pretty good, but to find one that looks this good is great. Normally I’d prefer wood for the out-of-doors, but this particular design has me sold on aluminum.

“An elegant and classic ladderback aesthetic distinguishes the sleek Aero Collection from ordinary indoor/outdoor furniture. A smooth lacquer finish resists scratches for low-maintenance use indoors and out.”

Charles Brill Wilsonart Nest Chair

ICFF: Matthew Kroeker

I do have to say that these two chairs are quite intriguing…

“Two chairs mate neatly along a broken line of shifted wood slats. Hinting at a metaphor for a broken or mended relationship, the chairs join to form a bench. Two can sit close or separate. The chairs are made from plantation grown teak hardwood, cast aluminum and aluminum tubing. They are suitable for outdoor and indoor use.”

The Oldstock candleholders are pretty eye-catching as well, and the fact that they are made from recycled glass bottles doesn’t hurt one bit.

Gus Design Group Devon Sofa

This sofa fits the bill: sturdy construction, slimline arms, tufted seat and great lines.

Paulistano Armchair

Bound to become iconic (in my humble opinion), this chair is an investment that will be worth every penny as years pass.

“Details that make a difference are the signature of this architect. 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 leather sling up or down the frame.”

Trix

Kartell products are on sale through Midnight May 14th at highbrowfurniture.com. I especially like the Trix, which can be configured as an ottoman, a chair, a lounge or a bed. How versatile!

“Trix is composed of three cushions of different sizes linked by an elegant system of rubber bands. With a simple rotating movement, they can be transformed and used in different ways. Trix can be the original pouf for two people. It can also be turned into a cosy bed, a comfortable lounge chair and a welcoming arm chair.

Love Chair

I know most people are crazy for Mr. Jonathan Adler, but somehow I didn’t get hit with the adoration bat when it comes to most of Mr. Adler’s designs. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s all good stuff, it’s just that nothing has struck me as an ‘i have to have it’ type thing. And then I see this, and somehow I finally got hit in the ‘noggin, if that’s the saying. This chair is so “sweet” it’s cute, and while I appreciate it for the irony (maybe?), I’m sure loads of people love it just ’cause it’s Adler.
