Sofa One by Karim Rashid

It has a very beautiful design. The shape is a little unusual but that’s exactly what makes it so special. It looks extremely fresh and neat. There something about this sofa that I can’t define but that is very appealing. It comes in white, which enhances even more the strange shape. The simplicity of this piece of furniture is amazing.

This is a piece that that redefines the term “stylish” by taking it to a whole new level. As you can see I’m very excited about this piece because designs like this one are rare and when you come across a piece as beautiful as this one you should really take advantage.

The first thing that comes in your mind when you see this sofa is ” that must be a really comfortable piece of furniture!”. And it’s true, it’s extremely comfortable. That was the main purpose of this collection, to create comfy sofa designs that you can include in your living room without making it look like a bedroom.  That’s a sofa I would like to sleep on, regardless of the situation.  The sofas come in two variants: in leather and in fabric. The colors used in both situations are tones of brown.

This increases the welcoming aspect of this piece of furniture. It almost looks like it invites you to sit down and to relax for a few moments. Once you realize how soft and comfy it is those few moments turn into a few hours and you eventually end up falling asleep there.

The collection is an infinitely variable series of sofas and sectionals, available in dozens of standard sizes and custom sizes as well. They are all available at resourcefurniture.com.

Frame Sofa by Hyung Suk Cho

For those who own a immaculate white house the Frame sofa by Hyung Suk Cho will be perfect. The Frame sofa is extremely different from the normal sofa sets that we have in the market today. The seating is made of stainless steel tubes and fabric upholstery .And it is available in black, executives in black suite will surely looks in harmony with this sofa set.

At a first glance you immediately notice the robust shape. This is not by any means an elegant piece of furniture. It looks very heavy and difficult to move around. Considering by the dimensions of this sofa and its size, it better be very comfortable, otherwise it would be just a waste of materials and space. And if it looks so fat in black, a color that is supposed to make you look slender, imagine how it would look like in white.

The sofa is actually composed of two elements that are held together just by that thin steel frame. That kind of makes me feel like it’s incomplete, like there’s something missing there. It just doesn’t look a finished product, more like a pre-version of the final product. It also has no feet or anything like that so it looks even heavier.

Bulb Chair by Gaëtan Van de Wyer

Now that’s a really interesting piece of furniture. At first you don’t even know what it is, then after analyzing it a little bit you realize it’s actually a chair, a very unique one indeed.

If you are looking for this type of furniture, perhaps you should turn your attention towards rattan furniture. Such furniture is created from cane, which is one of the toughest materials in the world. The Bulb Chair was designed by a Belgian designer, Gaëtan Van de Wyer. The bulb chair features an LED lamp to illuminate your space. As you can see from the pictures the chair is made from sustainable materials, including rattan and water hyacinth. The Bulb Chair measures 88cm w x 107cm d x 178cm h.

Creating a chair that actually has a lamp incorporated in the design is a very clever idea. It makes it the perfect place to enjoy reading a book or just sit there thinking of your problems, meditate or any other activity you might think of. I’m sure that for the user it’s a very comfortable and pleasant piece of furniture, but for the other ones…I don’t know, it looks kind of creepy. I wouldn’t want to come across that image when walking around the house.

The Munich Lounge Chair by Sauerbruch Hutton

Designed by Sauerbruch Hutton, an architectural company with the headquarters in Berlin, the Munich Lounge Chair will be produced by German manufacturer ClassiCon, which will be presenting the chair at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne show. This type of chair designs are good for our posture, although I’m not sure about the shape. The Munich Lounge Chair will be available in frame of oak or walnut, stained and clear varnished.

As you can see the base is made of wood and it has a natural color. The actual chair is black and it has an unusual shape. I’m not sure what’s the purpose of this design but I assume it was built for comfort, because if they actually chose this shape in order to make it look beautiful, then it’s a total fiasco. This is not a pretty chair. I don’t find it elegant or stylish, not even ok. I think it’s a waste of space to have something like this in your home. It just looks odd, and not even in a good way.

However, there are plenty of people who are actually looking for pieces like this. They actually like to have odd things in their home. Every person has its own style and personality, so there’s really no good or bad when it comes to this kind of situations. If you like it, then this is all that matters.

Japanese Agura Sofa by Hisae Igarashi 3

Modern minimalist designs are not the same as the old, harsh decor that existed years ago. The new look for minimalist interior design is a softer look, more personal and easier to live with. The Agura Sofa by Hisae Igarashi was designed for SAJICA,. The unique sofa and ottoman featuring a minimalist look are made from pure Japanese Igusa that not only makes it an eco-friendly product, but also adds elegance to the whole set.

Also the Agura sofa is supposedly capable to adsorb the humidity in the room and this way it can purify the toxic substances in the air, such as formaldehyde. The Agura Sofa will be at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne show in Germany.

I think that we can all agree that this is a very simple, even minimalist piece of furniture that is also elegant and maybe even beautiful. But there’s also something else that is very important when it comes to sofas, and this one doesn’t have it. It’s the lack of comfort that I’m talking about. This sofa does not look comfortable at all. There are no cushions or anything soft to sit on, there’s just the wood, covered in fabric. That’s not how I would like my sofa to look like. Maybe the Japanese can live like that, but the rest of us need a little more in order to feel good about our furniture.

Barcelona chair by Knoll

For the many people that enjoy relaxing and taking advantage of the smells and sounds of nature, an outdoor chaise lounge, just may be that one necessity that you require in order to fully get the experience you so dearly deserve.

The Barcelona chair features a look for modern architecture. Individual leather panels are cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted, and panels and buttons are crafted from a single hide. I recommend the black one because it is a resilient color and it looks modern to any house .The stainless steel is hand-buffed or chrome plated to a mirror finish.

It must be a really comfortable chair. It has a soft and comfy look. But that’s not everything. The designer also thought about the aspect. That’s why he chose to include that thin steel frame. Maybe it’s just my opinion, but I think it looks a little funny. It has those very thin legs that look so fragile and the rest of the structure doesn’t seem to share the same characteristics. It looks like a fat person with really thin legs. But that doesn’t make it less attractive or comfortable. It’s a really nice piece of furniture that would be a great addition to any modern home.
