Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Salone del Mobile, the world’s largest and most-anticipated furniture fair, wrapped up at the end of last week. There, we took in an array of charming chairs that beckoned attention. We share a few standout settees below.
The “Tribu” chair by Yabu Pushelberg is fit for a variety of living spaces. The sharp shape showed a woven back, connecting the seat and upper back rest. The chair comes in two versions—one lower to the ground with longer arm rests, and one slightly higher with taller arm rests.
“LOEWE: THIS IS HOME” presented pieces that seamlessly intertwined craft and home. Decorative and functional, the collection brought forth two simple chairs, one in black and one in white, topped with woven pillows with profiles of faces in brown and white.
Dedon debuted the “Tibbo” collection, with seats in teak, textiles, and woven fiber. Distinguished by rounded arms and legs, the wooden chairs bring a sense of elevated architecture and design through its construction and proportions. “The beauty of the turned wood has a tactile quality like no other material,” said Bobby Dekeyser, the brand’s founder and designer. “Because of the oily nature of teak, the wood feels especially soft, and so we set out [to] make furniture that would accentuate these properties.”
Ermenegildo Zegna lived up to tradition by presenting leather seats by Poltrona Frau. In Pelle Tessuta leather, the Poltrona Frau Linea A armchair is a decadent piece, designed to shine rich in architectural prowess by Peter Marino in 2007.
And Cappellini, simply put, showed us minimalism in “Embroidery Simple” by Johan Lindsten. As an evolved version of the brand’s popular Embroidery Chair by Lindsten, the new piece is a swivel chair with a round metal base, and is available in white, sand, or anthracite. The upholstery is also available in Cappellini fabrics and leathers.
