On Trend: Fall Seating Takes an Unexpected Turn

You would think the newest fall furniture will be full of fat and cozy winter-ready options (I am currently starting to dream of ideal fireside seating). However, to the contrary, fall 2012 is full of linear and light furnishings, taking a significant page from the midcentury modern design books.

Take a look below at a few of the new product offerings from some favourite online retailers. Each layout focuses on a discreet profile, so giving your cozy winter rooms a little more room to breathe this coming winter.


Ikea PS 2012 Chair – $89.99

Ikea’s new PS 2012 capsule set is a celebration of 60 decades of superior layout — however in all-new products. This chair’s extra-high back and armrests exemplify great functional design with excellent visual results. Add a thick sheepskin throw (also from Ikea), and this chair is ready to combine the family room, also.


Morgon Chair – $399

CB2 has its hands on the pulse of emerging design trends. The clean lines, raw timber and gray colours of this Morgon Chair are at their height right now. Bring this into any space for a punch of modern design.

West Elm

John Vogel Chair – $299

South African designer John Vogel’s cooperation with West Elm has produced a contemporary classic: the woven-seat Vogel seats. The handwoven seats highlight amazing textural details, although the easy bent backs keep the overall look contemporary.

Restoration Hardware has introduced a line of small-space furnishings that feature all of the luxury details we expect from this brand. The graceful lines of this chair are part lounger and part retro club chair. The combination results in beautiful and lush comfort.

Jonathan Adler

Mrs Godfrey Chair, Limitless Linden

The discreet profile of this retro chair from Jonathan Adler keeps with the”simpler is better” strategy that fall. A bright chevron print upgrades it beautifully with just the ideal touch of layout. Place two of these chairs by the fire for a posh setup.

Restoration Hardware

Larsson Lounge Chair – $595

Match the bottoms of your back into the gentle swoop of this Larsson chair from Restoration Hardware. Inspired by midcentury classics, the slender form and curved angles will not detract from the bigger elements of the room.

Pottery Barn

Archer Leather Chair – $799

Pottery Barn’s brand new, clubby Archer chair appears like a classic reproduction. Even though it would look right at home in a stylish home office, it is possible to keep it current by putting it alongside some contemporary sofa on your living room.


Julie Chair – $1,901.20

Julie Mifsud collaborated with Crate & Barrel to make this chair, inspired by the theme”chair as accessory” The combination of print and leather makes it ready to accessorize the corner of a bedroom or living area.
