We're keeping our eyes on these eight new seating designs.
Designer: Adam Court of Okha
Standout: A chair of contrasts by the company creative director, its plush cotton-velvet seat and back upholstery juxtaposes with an oak frame that nods to timber scaffolding.
Designers: Espen Voll and Torbjørn Anderssen for for Hem
Standout: A modular sofa by the Anderssen & Voll partners takes on a new colorway: red-hot Sera Canyon in wool-polyamide, a collaboration with textile brand Rohi.
Designers: Roberto and Ludovica Palomba for Poltrona Frau
Product: Get Back
Standout: The Palomba Serafini Associati architects and spouses borrowed the name of their elegantly informal leather-wrapped sofa from the title of a Beatles song.
Designers: Jasper Overgaard and Christian Dyrman of Overgaard & Dyrman
Standout: Round’s the theme for the made-to-order dining chair by the design-studio founders, from the leather-upholstered seat and back to the leather-wrapped tubular brass frame.
Designers: Leah Ring of Another Human
Standout: Part of the company founder’s ET collection inspired by the narrative of a misfit group of aliens, the oversize asymmetrical chair is covered in solution-dyed acrylic velvet. Through 1stDibs.
Designer: Sebastian Wrong of Established & Sons
Standout: Slashes in the lounger’s polyester upholstery by its headrest and seat back are the company founder’s reference to the paintings of artist and founder of Spatialism Lucio Fontana.
Designer: Bobby Berk for A.R.T. Furniture
Standout: The design guru of the Fab Five starring in Netflix’s "Queer Eye," the multi-hyphenate returns to furniture design with a binge watching–worthy sofa upholstered in velvet.
Designer: Cory Grosser for Bernhardt Design
Standout: The Cory Grosser + Associates founder’s piece for the manufacturer features a cut-out in its curved back, making the tidy tub chair striking from every angle, well suited to open plans.
