Explore nine statement easy chairs defined by patina.
In this Nine to Know, we’re exploring easy chairs that tell a story through time-worn textures and comforting forms. We’ve curated a mix of new and vintage upholstered armchairs designed to only get better with age.
A nod to the mid-century era, the Knoll Saarinen Womb chair is upholstered with soft leather that softens over time. Eero Saarinen designed this chair in response to Florence Knoll’s request to design “a chair that was like a basket full of pillows.”
Designed by one of Brazil’s most prolific furniture designers, the Percival Lafer MP-61 is an iconic vintage easy chair. It features a fibreglass shell which acts as a base for natural brown leather upholstery.
Designed in 1960 by Warren Platner, the Knoll Platner armchair was experimental for its time. Hundreds of curved steel rods are welded to a gracefully curved frame, upholstered at the seat and shoulders for comfort.
