fabulous fauteuils – the pacifica wing chair

The Pacifica Wing Chair by environment

It was love at first site with this chair. An irregular, quirky take on a wingback, it is upholstered in repurposed army tent canvas. The raw unfinished edges lend an easygoing style to the form which plays with the line between modern and traditional. The Pacifica Wing Chair by environment.

fabulous fauteuils – the concrete corbusier

fabulous fauteuils - the concrete corbusier armchair by Stefan Zwicky

This is fabulous. Swiss architect and designer, Stefan Zwicky, sets Le Corbusier’s LC2 armchair in stone. With concrete and rebar he transforms this icon of design with an industrial, postmodern twist. The concrete corbusier, yes please.

fabulous fauteuils – the axel three-seater

Yeah that’s right, this chair is amazing… Covered in recycled jute sacks brought back from Europe and finished with a “passiflora” welting, this chair(s) stopped me in my tracks. It is at once, totally over the top and totally understated. It is said to provide “the togetherness of a sofa and the solitude of a chair,” it is and isn’t all at the same time …well done Anthropologie.

fabulous fauteuils – rockin’ the bokja

 

I love the creative and colorful mix-and-match of the Bokja designs. Established in 2000, by Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, Bokja grew from the pair’s common love for antiques and vintage furniture, as well as a passion for ancient textiles and tapestries from Levant and countries along the silk road. Bokja stands for a poetic use of color, an emphasis on craftsmanship, and the sustainable use of available materials to express an artistic idea with an ever-present spiritual content.
Each piece represents a collage of different time periods and lands and moments of people’s lives… each piece stands for the complexity of humanity. Couple that with the fact that the company strives to work with local artisans using ancient techniques, creates jobs for underprivileged women, and supports sustainability and I have to say… rock on bokja.
