Designed in 1957 and produced until the 1970's — when the factory burned down — the Scandia Senior Easy Chair is a classic piece of Scandinavian design reborn. Working closely with the original manufacturers, this sleek chair has recreated in perfect detail, including the laminated and lacquered American Walnut seat, the dark brown leather cushion, and the satin chrome base. Guaranteed to look great in any space, from a SoHo loft to a mountain cabin.
Beautiful, comfortable, and simple, the Toro Lounge Chair is the perfect addition to your modern living room — letting you relax in style with a piece of furniture that only grows more attractive with time. The frame is perfectly crafted from natural, solid beech wood, while the sling is made from full grain leather. Available in chocolate leather with a smoke frame, and in colorways they call night and day (a slightly off-white leather sling and frame, and a deep black), the sling will age the more you sit in it. It's the ideal combination of comfort, style, and durability, all while staying lightweight enough to easily move around.
It might be called a sofa, but we doubt you'll be "plopping down" on the Peugeot Onyx Sofa. For one, it's made out of lacquered black carbon fiber that's been fused to a hand-cut portion of Volvic volcanic lava stone from France's Auvergne region, none of which sounds very springy. It also weighs 800 pounds, most of which is centered on one side of its 10-foot body — so depending on where you've put it, you probably won't want to put any extra stress on your floor. Then again, considering the price, we're sure you've already thought of that.
It may have been designed in 1934, but the Tolix Marais A Chair looks just as comfortable in an ultra-modern lounge as it did on the sidewalk patios of pre-war Paris cafes. Created by Xavier Pauchard, the man who brought galvanized steel to France, this iconic chair is created through a process of 100 manual operations, is stackable up to 10 high, and still made in Autun, the same Burgundy town where the company was founded. And don't worry if you're outfitting an entire restaurant/lounge area — they make a matching armchair and stool, as well.
If you prize comfort as much as you value beautiful design and hand-craftsmanship, then you need the Tanner Goods Nokori Chair. Hand made in Portland, Oregon, each chair is constructed from fine mahogany wood and heavy 13-ounce English bridle leather. With a look inspired by mid-century design aesthetics, its minimalist construction is both functional and attractive, while getting more comfortable and beautiful as you use it.
