B-Pop Side Chair – Laminate

“Echoing the soft curves of mid-century modernism, Omar de Biaggio’s compact B-Pop Side Chair (2003) brings a sense of wit and impeccable styling to beech ply and stainless steel tubular seating.”

Indeed. I couldn’t say it better myself.

Beech plywood with melamine laminate; 18mm steel tubing with satin chrome finish.

H 30″x W 22.5″x D 19″, Seat H 18″

Ming Square Arm Chair

This chair caught my eye, as most red modernish chairs do. It’d be a great accent chair in any room, or used in multiples around a dining table. Either way, it’s a winner.

Ming Square is available in Red, Black, Natural, Apricot, Dark Espresso, Ivory, Olive Green and Mahogany Finishes. Made of solid wood and Birch Veneer, hand stained and machine polished with Polyurethane coat.

24w x 18d x 26h. Seat: 17.75h

Hans Wegner’s ch07 lounge

Truly a sculptural furniture piece. It was designed in the late sixties, and it’s worth mentioning that an original version sold at a Christie’s auction for $20,000 in 1999.

It’s made of a plywood shell with cushions on both the seat and back.

[Thanks Bo!]

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.”

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).

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.
