Top 10 Statement Lounge Chairs
Adding a statement lounge chair can dress up your living room without you having to revamp your space. We have created a list of our top 10 favourite lounge chairs that we would consider a statement piece for you to sit back, relax and look good.
Catch Lounge Chair
The Catch Lounge Chair draws on Jaime Hayon’s penchant for humour and personification with its outstretched arms like a friend ready to welcome you with a welcoming embrace. A higher back and elongated seat is added in a single shell and protected by a metal armature.
Pacha Lounge Chair
Curvaceous, comfortable and soft, the Pacha Lounge Chair, designed by Pierre Paulin for GUBI is a modern design that embraces effortless versatility. By seeking the right proportions, Paulin has managed to give the round forms of the Pacha Chair a true elegance.
Beetle Lounge Chair
The Beetle Chair Set is a series of chairs with a seat and back in two separate sections in printed moulded veneer. The two pieces are joined by a steel covering and milled into the two shells. The shells are about 10mm thick with piping and often fully upholstered in cloth or leather.
Fauteuil de Salon Chair
A single architectural entity with a comfortable seating surface and backrest, the Fauteuil de Salon is best paired with other items in designer Jean Prouve’s series, using oiled, sturdy wooden armrests and the designers’ characteristic structural aesthetics.
Fat Lounge Chair
Fat Lounge Chair, the latest chair collection of Tom Dixons intended to hug the body and allow for many seats. The intense simplicity of the elements is accessible as a dining chair, bar stool, and lounge chair but maintains a humorous silhouette and reductionist aesthetics. Fat consists of moulded rubber fired in a high-lacquer with a metal leg and made to order. Hand-finished and upholstered by skilled craftsmen produced in Europe.
Grand Repos Lounge Chair
Grand Repos Lounge Chair by Vitra serves in the classic lounge chair heritage but has further evolved this idea to achieve a new level. With ample padding and constantly customisable sitting positions, these chairs meet nearly all specifications for convenient, relaxing seating.
With 3000 petals, the innovative design of the Hortensia Armchair will make one feel comforted and calm as if they’re sitting in a blooming flower. Configurable in various fabrics and leathers of your choice, the Hortensia Armchair fits in with every interior. Designed by Andrés Reisinger & Júlia Esqué for Moooi.
The Wingback series by Tom Dixon is a collection of remastered British classics – A dining chair, tables, sofas and ottomans are included in the set. The Wingback was influenced by traditional 17th-century wingbacks and balloon back design and built for the Shoreditch House Members‘ Club. Their work is made from a wide variety of colours, Kvadrats with chair legs and natural solid or black oak. The expressive curves allow designers to choose Wingback as a sculptural function in the centre of spaces instead of just an item of seating.
Uchiwa Lounge Chair
Uchiwa, the typical Japanese hand fan, is a strong sleeper that takes its soft and open form. Uchiwa’s strong plastic shell is accommodating and soft inside. The sleeve is tailored for a more domestic setting and hardened foam for a more challenging contract background.
Masculo Lounge Chair
Designed by the architecture duo GamFratesi for GUBI, the Masculo Lounge Chair is distinguished by the contrast between Scandinavian elegance and Italian dynamic curves. The blend of beauty, craftsmanship, solidity and sitting comfort is effective and results in an engaging, upholstered lounge chair. The unique, semicircular back-and-armrest demonstrates almost violent masculinity while at the same time being gentle and nurturing.
