Premium Seating

A really beautiful occasional chair is like an artful piece of high fashion: stunning purely as an object, beheld with reverence (if not mild fear), and probably out of your price range.

The new(ish) Boomerang chair from Plantation is that Thom Browne suit you've been eyeing at Jeffrey. Hitting a sweet spot between Bauhaus and Danish modern, I think it really sings. Too bad I have to pay rent this month.

A little bit Marcel Breuer (sans chrome) and a little bit Hans Wegner (sans teak), it would look amazing next to my imaginary Kagan sectional and sack of gold bullion. Also Orlando Bloom would be sitting in it whilst reading aloud from an unpublished David Sedaris manuscript.

I'll take two, please!
