Today, this sofa style lends a more formal air to any space, especially when upholstered in a formal fabric. A more casual textile choice would make it appropriate for a family room that doesn’t need a great deal of formality. In either case, the camelback sofa has some elements that characterize the style. The legs are typically exposed, the sofa has no back cushions and it usually has square or rolled arms.
Perhaps some of the appeal for his work arises comes from the general magnetism that hanging chairs have. Much like a porch swing or a rocking chair, the gentle motion is calming to humans. Of course, the fact that Hefer’s seats are furry, cocoon-like enclosures makes them all the more alluring. There’s certainly something comforting about curling up in a womb-like enclosure.
Pelicanus Iris looks more benign than some of Hefer’s toothier models, and the ample lower beak of the bird forms a cocoon fit for lounging. Perhaps the old fable about storks and babies fuels human desire to want to curl up inside this seat.

This is the Gleda Medium chair, a version of the one showed just before this. As its big brother, this version of the Gleda chair has a frame made of solid oak. It lacks the armrests and the brass rail and this gives it a light and cozy look. The leather cushions match the frame in terms of color and give the chair an elegant and refined appearance. Other options are available too.
