  • Stephen Kenn Parallel Leather Armchair - Black Leather & Polished Nickel
    shophorne.com
    Los Angeles based designer Stephen Kenn has long been inspired by clean and simple design aesthetics and the stories inherent in vintage military fabrics. In 2011 he combined those two loves by creating The Inheritance Collection. The collection was the result of an exploration of how furniture is constructed, and then a desire to distill the process down to the barest bones. Likening the process of furniture construction to the way the human body is constructed, the frame, belts, and cushions became the bones, muscles, and skin of each piece. Ultra soft black calfskin cushion covers, black cotton webbing and leather belts interwoven atop a polished nickel frame. Made in Los Angeles, the collection is inspired by the characteristic principles of Soviet Modernism and bold interpretations of Brutalist Architecture through the simplification of form, receptive angular geometries and functional design.

  • Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk Reid One-Arm Chair in Leather, Right
    dwr.com
    Not just for sitting, the Reid Collection (2007) invites you to watch movies, take a nap or surf on a laptop. Maximizing the enjoyment of downtime is something Jeffrey Bernett is passionate about since he spends a fair bit of his free time doing extreme sports, and he held nothing back when creating Reid with design partner Nicholas Dodziuk. Unlike sofas where you sit “on top” of the cushions, Reid is more of a “relaxed sit” thanks to down- and feather-wrapped foam. The seat depths suit various lounging positions, and the wide armrests offer support from elbow to wrist. Discreet legs further the streamlined appearance. Made in U.S.A. Mix and match Reid modular pieces to create the configuration of your dreams.

  • Jean Prouvé Prouvé Cité Armchair
    dwr.com
    Favored among collectors, the Cité Armchair (1930) exhibits a certain static dynamism inherent to Jean Prouvé's work with its low build and angled backrest. A resilient fabric sling seat is stretched over the chair's tubular steel frame to produce a hammock effect, following the contours and movement of the body for constant support. Distinctive sheet steel runners serve as the base, giving way to thick leather belt armrests that invite contact with their smooth tactility. The tobacco fabric has a red frame; the black fabric has a matching black frame. One of Prouvé's few designs that he used in his own home, the Cité Armchair is a compelling lounge option for residential and commercial spaces. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany.
  • Oscar Armchair by Matthew Hilton
    shophorne.com
    The Oscar armchair strikes a pleasing balance between modernity and tradition, large in size yet light in appearance. The armchair is made from a European hardwood frame, jute webbing and hessian straps and then covered with a mix of materials that includes natural fibers, animal hair and wool. It features large feather cushions that are notable for their depth, the back has a line of sewn in pulls, lending the armchair the appearance of a buttoned back, without the actual buttons. The feet are made from walnut stained beech, with the front two being turned versions. By contrasting long straight lines with delicate natural curves, Mathew Hilton has created a piece that is both reserved and full of humility. The Oscar armchair is a piece perfect for those who like their modernity laced with a little familiarity. Made in the UK. Shown here in Molly 160 Wool and Range Leather. Additional fabrics available upon request.

  • Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair, Set of 2
    dwr.com
    Who else but Philippe Starck would dare mess with a king? Reinventing the classic Louis XVI armchair for Kartell, the playful Louis Ghost Armchair (2002) is a postmodern triumph of technical innovation and historical style. Translating the varied lines and formal geometry of its predecessor into a single form of injection-molded polycarbonate, the Louis Ghost is a robust chair with a medallion backrest for leisurely comfort. When interviewed about the collection by the Dallas Morning News, Starck commented that it “has a mix ofand styles based on our shared memories. We all own this piece in a way. The chair is well balanced; I try to be balanced myself.” Suitable for indoor and outdoor use in residential and commercial settings. Stacks six high. Made in Italy. Sold as a Set of 2. The single-piece injection-molding process used in making every Ghost Chair leaves behind several faint artifacts that are perfectly normal, not defects.

  • Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk Raleigh Armchair in Leather
    dwr.com
    Raleigh (2009) is a comfortable collection that draws from midcentury Danish design. It features an exposed solid wood frame that wraps around the back (be sure to click on additional views above to see it) to support the seating area while lending visual lightness and satisfying tension to the whole. Unlike other exposed-frame collections that force overly upright sitting positions, Raleigh is designed with a carefully canted seatback for a more natural way of situating yourself as you relax and unwind. We chose to work with Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk on this project because of the importance they place on people – how they move, interact, live and, most of all, sit. The Raleigh Collection received Interior Design magazine’s top honor for 2010 in the residential lounge category. Made in U.S.A.

    lumens.com
    "Released in 1959, the Heart-Shaped Cone Chair by Verner Panton was a particularly distinctive take on the classic wing chair. More than that, it embodied the transition of Scandinavian design from wood and formal austerity to brighter and more sculptural offerings, made possible by new materials like plastic and wire mesh. Like the original, the Vitra Miniature Heart-Shaped Cone Chair is made out of fiberglass-reinforced plastic covered in bright red upholstery."

  • Skargaarden Haringe Armchair
    shophorne.com
    The Haringe series of teak furniture is refined elegance for indoors, outdoors or anything in between. The sophistication of the series makes it ideal for around the swimming pool, in the game room or just about anywhere. The teak slats are framed with either stainless steel or black stainless steel. The cushions are given a sophisticated touch through the use of buttons and decorative stitching so they are not waterproof but the beauty is still undeniable. The cushions are available in either a weather durable Sunbrella fabric or in imitation leather with loose patches sewn together by hand and buttons added along the seams. The leather cushions are for indoor use only. The series has an armchair, lounge chair, sofa, and cocktail tables in 2 sizes as well as 3 sizes of a dining table. As with all teak furniture, to maintain the original luster the teak requires to be oiled once or twice a year. If left untreated the wood will develop a silvery gray patina which is equally beautiful.

The Organic Highback Chair was designed with black beech legs and a supportive high backrest that makes a comfortable place to lounge or seat guests. The Highback version offers added benefits such as extra neck support and a broader seat, while the Standard and Conference versions are purposefully designed to suit a range of modern day needs.Available in a variety of colors.
