Throwback Thursday: Robin Day's Easy Chair

October 7, 2010 · Posted in Modern Design · Comment 

Somewhat akin to the Charles and Ray Eames Lounge Chair, Robin Day’s Easy Chair looks like something to snuggle up in.  I like that it looks like a cockpit chair from the Starship Enterprise.  I found one on a Swedish website for $570, but who knows if that is up to date or not.  I don’t usually venture into the realm of furniture, but I loved the chair too much to pass it up.

The Fireplace

I’m a sucker for fireplaces.  Sometimes the materials, the clean geometry, and the glass of a typical “modern” home can make it a little cold.  The fireplace seems to be a good place to make a “modern” home have a warmer, cozier side.  How about Radius Design’s take on the fireplace??  I’m loving it.  I like that it challenges the traditional meaning of the fireplace, but still looks great and serves the same purpose.  It’s fueled by bio-ethanol so no need to fret the fumes or smoke.

Richard Meier Chair

So I had no idea that Richard Meier had designed a chair.  It is no surprise that it looks fantastic and was designed in 1983.  It was only built for five years.
