Most Expensive Versace Star Trek Armchair

For those who read my posts and had already formed an opinion and an idea about what I am and what I like you probably know that this is entirely my thing. I simply love this armchair! It is called the Star Trek Armchair and it is made by Versace. Why Star Trek? Look at it a little bit closer and you will see that this chair resembles the ones on the famous Starship Enterprise in which the commanders stood and steered the ship through space.

It is useless to talk about comfort because a chair like this was build only for comfort; the fact that the leather armchair looks good and has an interesting, but predictable design is not left by change either. For me this is the perfect symbiosis between style and comfort. This is what I want for my living room. This is what I want for my special place, where I can relax in a very fashionably way.

Brno is a chair that goes beyond modern and elegant. It’s a classic that will forever be appreciated and perceived as timeless and beautiful. The Bro chair was created by famous designer and architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It has an extremely simple design but its charm lies in the simple details. The shape of the chair is elegant and, even though there aren’t any details or elements to make it stand out, its gracious look makes it hard to overlook.

The Brno chair is not only simple and elegant but also very comfortable. It has a strong and durable construction with a tubular chrome-plated steel frame.

The Anders High Back Wicker Chair

There are very few materials and furniture pieces that can have the same effect and impact on the user as this wicker chair. Chairs are made to be comfortable, to sustain our bodies and to allow us to be cozy. Sometimes this aspect is forgotten and the aesthetic aspect tends to get the first place and all the attention. In this case the designer managed to combine both functions in a very simple way.

The Anders chair is hand-woven and crafted from environmentally sustainable rattan. Because of the fact that it’s handcrafted, it means that each chair will be unique and will have slight differences in terms of design. This only given it character and makes it special. Moreover, because of the type of material used to create the chair, this piece of furniture offers the flexibility that’s necessary to make the chair comfortable without necessitating seat or back cushions.

The shape of the chair plays an important role as well. It has a very simple shape, slightly curved, meant to follow the body’s position and form as the user sits down. The high back offers the support the body needs. In addition, for even more comfort, the chair has a matching footstool made from the same materials and with a similar design. The dimensions of the Anders chair are 40 1/4″h x 28″w x 23 5/8″d. It can be purchased at the price of $700.00 and it’s a versatile piece of furniture, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Eldwin Brown Leather Recliner

I have mentioned in many posts that I am a fan of black leather and I love the sound of my leather jacket on a really nice comfortable leather sofa. Seeing this Eldwin recliner really made me think and wonder if I explored all the “leather options”.  The thing about recliners is that everybody thinks that they are for the elderly. Well, trust on this when I say that young people don’t know what they are missing; this chair is made for comfortable experiences.

About that brown/beige leather, I understand the choice and I like it and let me tell you why. A few days ago I took a ride with a friend of mine in his brand new Mercedes. That leather on the Mercedes seats looked almost like the one covering this recliner the only exception was the hand-made stitches.  Imagine the feeling you will have when you will lay down on that top-grain leather, spread your legs and watch your favorite TV show.

This charming recliner has three sitting positions for a higher comfort degree and its generous size (  27.5”W x 38”D x 38.5”T) can accommodate everyone thanks to the hardwood and metal components.  The price for the Eldwin Leather Recliner is around $2,499.00 and for that amount of money you get style and comfort with special a soft, loose seat and back cushions.

Dala Lounge Chair

This thing is fresh! So fresh that it was just presented at the Salone del Mobile 2012 from Milan. This product is Stephen Burks’s creation, one of the most talented designers from America. Some say that DALA is the first collection of woven furniture that unifies surface and structure, all we know is that this collection approaches new ideas introducing to the public innovative and stylish furniture but this doesn’t out by just that. Under the colorfully powder-coated frame of extruded aluminum mesh there is a special ecological fabric.

This fabric took years in research and development and is being made from recycled food-and-drink packaging mixed with recyclable polyethylene; an industrial first for Dedon company.  The whole DALA collection made like this consists of a lounge chair, an ottoman and a stool that doubles very well as side table or as a single regular table. The entire collection is characterized by lightweight, portability and comfort.

Unconventional Tembo and Bolt stools

Tembo and Bolt are two unconventional stools with a contemporary design. They were created by Note Design Studio for La Chance and they were launched by the company at the Salone del Mobile this year. The stools have a very interesting and uncommon design. They actually feature more than one design and have been created in more than one version.

The Tembo and Bolt stools are part of the brand’s first collection, called Jekyll and Hyde. The name of the collection offers a very suggestive hint referring to the nature of the stools’ designs and models. The Tembo and Bolt stools have opposite styles and finishes. For example, the Hyde version of these pieces of furniture presents bright colors and finishes. On the other hand, the Jekyll version features darker colors. It’s a permanent contrast and, even though they were designed to be opposites, they form a great duo.

Iconic Mid-Century Cherner Chair

Valuable things last in time, they never come out of fashion and people fight over them. A classical designed item is always in actuality and fits any space thanks to its elegance and quality of materials and crafting. Most of the classic furniture piece are, of course, made of wood, that’s a massive wood, such as oak, but many of them, more reliable and closer to our contemporary times, are made of plywood. However, plywood allows the creator the model some interesting designs that the massive wood never would.

A little hassle was born around a chair created by Norman Cherner. He designed this seat back in 1958 for Plycraft. Since then, the Cherner Chair was produced and merchandised by Playcraft and through the years it became really famous thanks to a painting that appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. The painting, named ‘The artist at work’, was done by Norman Rockwell in 1961 and contained the image of a Cherner Chair. Now, Cherner’s sons declaimed their property rights and created the Cherner Chair Company which is the only one to produce the important piece of furniture.
