Analyzing this design, it’s easy to see that it’s a typical Scandinavian-inspired creation. The clean, simple lines are a very important characteristic and they are beautifully showcased in this case.The Rio lounge chair has a very appealing look. It comes in two colors, line and blue. Both tones are very bold and vibrant. It’s why adding other decorative elements and details was unnecessary and would have only taken away attention from the beauty of the design itself.

The chair is also very comfortable and cozy. It’s an eye-catching piece of furniture that would make a beautiful accent piece for modern and contemporary homes. It would be a nice addition to the living room and it can be used as a single piece or in pairs. It could also look great is spaces such as waiting rooms where it would stand out with its color and shape.
