This quintet of upholstered chairs – by Fornasarig, Arco, Montis and more – bring together classic forms and modern style.
1 Blixen armchair by Fendi Casa
As befits a brand like Fendi Casa, Toan Nguyen’s Blixen armchair riffs on menswear, with buckled belt-like straps securing the back and seat cushions to the steel plate frame. The elegant leather upholstery, which also wraps the armrests, complements the polished base, combining a tailored feel with an architectural structure.
2 Enzo by Montis
Geert Koster’s Enzo is a throwback to the wingback, but with a contemporary wood frame and a plush velvet upholstery that is all the rage this season. Despite its rounded proportions, the armchair has compact dimensions, thanks to a thin external shell.
3 Contour by Arco
Conveying simplicity and elegance, Contour by Icelandic designer Gudmundur Ludvik is both a great chair to sit in and a stylish focal point for a modern interior. Designed for comfort, its rounded backrest (upholstered in leather or fabric) rests on a beech laminate frame with an oak layer.
4 Belle by Linteloo
Can a chair be any more adorable? Part of his new collection for Linteloo, Piet Boon’s Belle fauteil is a compact low seater that harkens back to a stately past. With a base in varnished solid oak, and upholstered in velvety fabric with a satiny seat cushion, the chair is as lovely as its name implies.
5 Wolfgang Lounge by Fornasarig
Luca Nichetto adds to his Wolfgang family for Fornasarig this high-backed lounge chair – which also comes with an ottoman – defined by its sleight-of-hand form. The backrest seams to float from the wooden stick-like frame and the padding’s suppleness gives off the impression of cloudlike softness.
