Le Corbusier Petite Lounge Chair
One of the most timeless pieces designed by France’s top modernist chair designer, Corbusier was famous for creating sophisticated pieces that stand out from other modernist noise.
With a more formal and put-together look than other versions, the ‘Le Corbusier Petite Lounge Chair’ brings a touch of Parisian class to any living space.

Mart Stam Armchair
Mart Stam was a Ducth visionary who was already designing breathtaking chairs by the age of 27.
This chair, simply named after the designer himself, was one of his most popular creations. At the time in the early 1900s, word of the Mart Stam Cantilever Armchair spread quickly among the interior design community.
You can see for yourself how this minimalistic design would deserve a second glance in any living space!
Saarinen Tulip Armchair
A classic piece from the pedestal series, the Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen was responsible for this ever-present icon of interior furnishings. The Saarinen Tulip Armchair is perfect if you want your living space to be free of the ‘visual clutter’ that Saarinen believed was caused by the traditional four-legged chairs.
The key to the success of the Saarinen Armchair is that it is crafted in one material from base to top, so it makes for a single-form piece to stand out from the crowd.
A comfortable staple in offices, foyers and homes across the world, everyone has seen an egg chair somewhere.
This popular design was made famous by Arne Jacobsen in 1958, when he designed it for the lobby of a prestigious Copenhagen hotel. Its singular, organic form and monotone color makes the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair a natural-looking addition to any living space.
Made with traditional Kvadrat Danish fabrics, you can be assured of a resilient armchair that will withstand plenty of usage!
Question Mark Chair
Ever since it was designed by Stefan Heiliger in 2008, the question mark chair has seen a meteoric rise in popularity.
Its quirky design has meant that Tonon, the company behind it, has received more awards for this chair than any other it has created.
At first glance, you might be tempted to think that its shape would make the Tonon Question Mark Chair a little fragile. However, it is reinforced with steel to make a sturdy, modern addition to your living space!
