D’Amore Chair By Russell Grigg

This cool transparant D’Amore Chair is made by the Designer Russell Grigg from the Australians Chez Banc. You can have it in its original form, transparent plastic, or you can just add the mattress of your desire: leather, fabric, fur. Or the Union Jack for a patriotic design moment.

This transparent chair takes the simple form of the human body and makes it so much more than a hollow.

Modern Classic Orson Chair by Jake Phipps

The "Orson" chair takes on a totally different look from every side adding to its strong visual impression. The rotational plastic composition reminds me of some of the mid-century classics like the Verner Panton Chair. Designed by Jake Phipps that is known for some really unique furniture and lighting designs.

Vibrant Colored Sofas by Amin Design

Eco Deco collection, designed by Amin Bouchta allows you to add more beauty in your home. Its elegant design and useful will surely give your home a new sleek look. It's great when you can work vibrant colors into your home design. These sofas are from Amin Design and they "aim to please" regarding color. The rich purple creates a big statement as it anchors a living room and creates a sharp contrast to the contemporary theme. I like it in contemporary decorating when a bright color is infused in a room to create some atmosphere.

Avensis Modern Furniture by Hjellegjerde

This Hejellegjerde furniture line has a long history of meticulously made hand crafted merchandise that pays very close attention to posture, and as you can see visual appeal as well. Both chairs and sofas are equipped with their Fjords Active Release System which provides the correct neck support in all positions and is perfect for reading, napping, or entertaining.

As you might suspect the high back sofas and love seats all recline but Fjords has also included a reclining feature in the low back models as well for added comfort. The Avensis is available in high or low back sofa, love seat, or chair with a variety of matching swivel recliner and ottoman combinations. Wood trim is available as an option on sofa groups.

The Grandbazaar Sofa by Maybe Design

Designed by the Turkish design brand Maybe Design and featured at the recent Vienna Design Week. This Grandbazaar Sofa is an authentic oriental product. This grandbazaar sofa look so thin and fragile, but i think the designer already tested this oriental product for its durability. Nice seating anyway..
