They’re quirky and cozy, but the whimsical air of works by artist Porky Hefer belies the deeper meaning of the hanging seats he creates. From animal shapes to ovate seats woven from various materials, the “nests” that the South African artist designs are definitely conversation pieces. The materials he uses, the craftspeople who contribute their skills and the underlying inspiration make these more than simple hanging seats.
There are a lot of comfortable chairs out there and while some only offer the illusion of comfort by looking cozy, the ones that we’re interested in take things further and are created with this specific detail in mind. One of these options is the Archibald Gran Comfort lounge chair designed by Jean-Marie Massaud. It’s one of the best options if you want to set up a cozy reading corner.
The role of an accent role in some cases is to become a visual focal point for the space and to direct the attention towards a particular spot. Sometimes that is ensured by a design that’s sculptural and just a little bit theatrical, like that of the Quinaquina chair. It’s a swivel chair with a circular wooden base and an octagonal body.
Furniture with curves has always been appealing. A lot of designs that feature this characteristic have become classics. Remember the Panton Chair? Its design revolutionized the furniture industry. But what about curved sofas and sectionals? They have a lot of flair too. In fact, they’re making a comeback in a lot of contemporary interior designs. While they are definitely full of potential, curved sofas can also be quite pretentious.
