Oak, stainless-steel, acrylic, wool—the range of chairs can seem limitless. But a “perfect chair” can be the finishing touch that pulls a space together, or can even serve as an impactful focal point of a room. Our designers, who frequently specify chairs for client projects from luxury properties in Southern California to historic renovations in Canada, share insight into their recommended seating for every end-use. Applying an all-encompassing approach to their seat selections, our Design Studio keeps aesthetics, functionality, and overall design top of mind when considering the options.
- The Outdoor Chair – Helios Heated Love Chair
Designed by Aaron Jones, who sought a smarter solution to standard heat lamps, the Helios Heated Love Chair was the first of its kind. A piece of furniture that uses radiant heat, it’s ingenious, elegant, and perfectly at home in a mountain cabin or a chic beach shack. Constructed from pebble-smooth cast stone, powder-coated steel, and internal electrical components, the chair gently warms the entire body with its efficient, innovative and comfortable design.
- The Statement Outdoor Chair – Kenneth Cobonpue Dragnet Lounge Chair
The Dragnet lounge chair brings a nautical vibe and a versatile, outdoor-inspired design with its intricately woven rope detail. The lounge chair’s stainless steel base is softened by a detailed acrylic fabric that surrounds the seat.
- The Dining Chair – Färg & Blanche’s Frankie Chair
Inspired by trouser braces, this chair’s simple design exudes a simple beauty. It’s also easily stackable, with a seat that provides a high-level comfort without sacrificing modernity—the Y-shaped back detailing creates clean lines and visual interest.
