We love the bold colors and playful form of the Mayflower Chair at Roche Bobois (1015 Western Ave., Seattle; 206.332.9744; roche-bobois.com). Wrapped in stretch jersey fabric and sure to lift your mood, try pairing it with a pillow in a contrasting shade and matching ottoman ($2,785). It comes in three convenient sizes: baby ($3,100), mummy ($3,450) and papa ($3,720). Outfit your digs with all three, or pick one that’s just right.
As of July, BoConcept (901 Western Ave., Seattle; 206.464.9999; boconcept.us) welcomed a sibling shop on the Eastside. Check out its new Bellevue locale (10400 NE Eighth St., Bellevue; 425.732.3333), and, while you’re there, the rich blue, curvy Imola Chair (starts at $2,649) is sure to catch your eye. It’s easily customizable like all Bo products; and one can choose from more than 80 fabrics and colors. Look for a swivel-base option debuting next year.
Alchemy Collections’ (2029 Second Ave., Seattle; 206.448.3309;alchemycollections.com) polycarbonate Aria Chair ($352) is a luxe option for lovers of all things translucent. The simple armless form is a perfect companion to desk or table. Choose from three barely-there colors such as orange, clear and blue. If you’d prefer to see where you’re sitting, opaque white is also an option.
The just-debuted Fresh Air Collection ($920) by Richard Schultz, available at Terris Draheim (5600 Sixth Ave. S, Seattle; 206.763.4100; terrisdraheim.com), is a revitalizing take on the outdoor chair. Light and modern, the powder-coated aluminum frame set upon chrome legs gives a strong nod to the ageless Windsor chair, but with a fresh twist. Six sizes of coffee table ($1,075–$2,675) and dining table ($1,650–$2,975) options round out the collection. They’re made for all spaces, so don’t hesitate to drag these pieces inside as well.
Chair lovers can enjoy a double shot of sumptuous seating at Inform Interiors (2032 Eighth Ave., Seattle; 206.622.1608; informseattle.com) and its nearby, smaller sister shop Inform Contract (820 Lenora St., Seattle; 206.588.8088), where you can map out your design dreams and spot this season’s most innovative seats. Covet-worthy chairs include Artifort’s Orange Slice chair ($2,666), pictured here, Tom Dixon’s England wingback chair, Maruni’s Hiroshima armchair (starts at $1,108) and Kartell’s hot-off-the-press Masters chair ($244).
Rock Till You Drop
Stop by Area 51 (401 E Pine St., Seattle; 206.568.4782; area51seattle.com) to check out a host of hot new and vintage reclining options. Resting on thin steel legs, the low, minimalist GT Rocker ($1,150), shown here, comes in a variety of bright fabric options for your swaying pleasure. For something more voluptuous, the Mollie Chair (starts at $550) steadies its chunky frame on lean chrome legs.
