Editors' Picks: 28 Featured Products in Seating

Munkegaard by Howe. Munkegaard is back and even better. The reengineered version features three layers of veneer, reinforcing the vulnerable narrow area where the back bends to meet the seat.

Bandas by Gan. In this coordinated collection of seating and floor coverings, wool rugs with exploded cross-stitching adorn blocky lounges; textiles can be switched out as the mood dictates, thanks to Velcro fasteners.

Michel Club by B&B Italia. Lean modular seating units can be configured in dozens of ways, creating a superflexible sectional with low-key charm; the inner structure of sterilized dow and shaped polyurethane foam ups the comfort level.

Alpin by Hussl. The Viennese designers' longstanding fascination propelled them to conceive this contemporary collection in maple, ash, oak, and walnut, with laquered, oiled, stained, or bleached finish.

Wafer by Matsuso T. Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto, and Ola Rune's sleek side chair juxtaposes attenuated edges with chunky stripes of solid maple and walnut.

Mariposa by Vitra. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby prove just how chic overstuffed seating can be with this sofa, whose slender adjustable back and winglike side panels bring to mind a butterfly in flight.

Meta by Dune. This pyramid-inspired hybrid table/bench pairs steel legs with a triangular Corian top hand polished to a high gloss (and cushioned here with fiery City Velvet polyester by JAB Anstoetz).

Season Mini by Viccarbe. The latest extension of the designer's Season series, this petite polyurethane-foam-padded pouf packs a punch thanks to concealed wheels and a built-in handle.

Series 7 by Fritz Hansen. A design constant since its 1955 introduction, Arne Jacobsen's seminal Series 7 chair graces homes, offices, cafés, and shops worldwide. Now the supple one-piece body gets an update from Danish artist Tal Rosenzweig (aka Tal R), who was commissioned to develop nine new stains and lacquers for the series's 60th anniversary.

Tender by Lamm. Never has seating been so, er, Tender. Father-son design team Paolo and Francesco Favaretto, of Favaretto&Partners, intend the word here in the nautical sense, as the small boat that attends a large vessel.

The latest star tapped to design for Moroso's M'Afrique outdoor collection is Marc Thorpe, whose Husk chair tapers gently around the body and extends thornlike, above the sitter's head, to form an inviting nook.
