Mixing an old-school aesthetic with timeless design, the Wegner Papa Bear Chair ($1,500) is sure to add a bit of '50s style to your parlor, living room, or man area. Originally designed by Hans Wegner, this reproduction features a walnut hardwood frame, walnut-tipped armrests, an oversize, button-tufted seat back, and nearly any color or style of fabric or leather upholstery you'd like.
Inspired by vintage luggage trunks, the Cuscino Lounge Chair ($1,750) isn't so much a chair as two pillows — and an optional bench/ottoman/pouf — that are linked together via leather straps. Features include sandwich foam internal padding for a mix of comfort and support, your choice of natural or black straps, and a quilted leather exterior. Matching, multi-piece coffee table not included.
Mix some military-inspired pieces into your interior design repertoire with Stephen Kenn Inheritance Seating ($450-$5,000). Created by the minds behind temple bags, this unique lineup features welded steel frames that have been rusted and clear coated for a marbled brown finish, custom-made leather and webbing belts that also happen to be exact replicas of WWII-era Swiss mule belts, and foam cushions and microfiber pillows wrapped in US military half shelters, making each seat, stool, and sofa a one-of-a-kind item.
It's always a little scary when someone sets out to update an undeniable classic, but in this case, we think it turned out okay. First introduced in 1958, the Eames Aluminum Lounge Chair ($1,600-$2,350) recently got a slight refresh, as it's now available with a graphite or white powder-coated frame and white or black Spinneybeck Vicenza leather upholstery. Otherwise, it's still sporting the same sleek design, four-star base, and sling seat that's made it an icon of design.
Add a touch of 1960s flair to your office, lounge, or living area with the Shell Chair ($2,500-$3,400). Designed in 1963 by Danish design legend Hans Wegner, the Shell is made from bent plywood, with a wide, wing-like seat, tapered legs — of which there are only three — and a reclined back that's perfect for relaxing.
