Nouveau Lounge by Kate McCreary

American designer Kate McCreary has used her imagination and creativity to come up with an unusual and original design for a lounge chair. The Nouveau lounge, as it is called, was inspired by the signature elements of the Art Nouveau period. So its bold and organic forms look very interesting and the overall image is impressive.

This particular lounge chair would look quite beautiful in a contemporary home. It has a very deceptive look as the cushions that form the seat have a texture and color very similar to the ones of the concrete. Actually, they are made of foam, so it’s just a false impression. It would have been interesting if they were really made on concrete, but this would have been a disadvantage for the comfort issue. Still, it’s a cool idea.

This makes this lounge chair a very nice addition to a contemporary home where this kind of pieces are very appreciated. And because of the close resemblance with the concrete it would look particularly good outside. You could really fool someone with this chair. It’s made of Italian gray wool and a handmade steel frame. Each bolster is made of a specific density foam, so it’s a very comfortable piece. Besides being bold and very good-looking. It has a very dynamic look and a contrasting appearance. It’s harsh and rough on the outside but soft and cozy on the inside.
