Modern Contemporary Furniture

LIKE A NAUTILUS SHELL the Lyaeus Chair surrounds the user in a cocoon-like embrace; this amounts to more of a self-enclosed room than a seat. Bentwood slats are spaced to allow limited sunlight to filter through the carapace while maintaining privacy. The earth-toned design is reflective of Lyaeus’ intended usage: as an outdoor chair ideally situated by swank poolsides or on posh rooftop lounges.

    ADELTA Tipi Chair $2,254.00 (includes shipping) Tipi was designed by the iconic designer Eero Aarnio in 2002. In designing it, he seemed to pose the question "what would design be without humor?"

After all, what goes for the Pony goes hand in hand for his bird friend; in keeping with Aarnio's playful philosophy he's quoted as saying "a seat does not necessarily have to be a chair!"
