You know how it is. You spend a few hours at a furniture show and sooner or later all those chairs start to look more than a little inviting. So for part four of our round up of the Stockholm Furniture Fair, that’s where we are focusing. The modern variation of a wing back chair on the left was on the stand of the Danish company Roomstore. They distribute a number of brands one of which will doubtless produce this chair which, I am told, was inspired by an elephant’s ears. The pink creation on the right is from Bruhl. Is it just me or is this somewhat unexpected from a German company?’ Filigree’, designed by Kati Meyer-Brühl apparently ‘ defines the golden age of romance between green living and floral elegance’. Well both Barbie and I think it is rather splendid.
There is a chaise in the same style. Available in a range of colors including gold this must be the very thing to recline on while opening a four pack of beer, eating hot dogs and watching sport on the telly. Have I got that wrong?
Favourite chair at the show? Possibly. This is party of the ‘Lady’ range from Swedish firm Homeline. They manage that rare trick of producing something which is both classic but modern.
Now, there are photos of me relaxing in the chair on the left, holding court while the good people from Homeline pretend to be interested in my theories of design and international markets. The trouble is I rather obscure the chair – and that would be a shame.
This fluffy little number form Munna is called ‘Cutie’, which seems appropriate enough. Munna are yet another Portuguese company producing interesting modern furniture. Another one to look out for. I thought Munna was one of the Pokemon. No?
