The re-engineered version of Arne Jacobsen's 1955 Munkegaard chair for Howe is back and even better—the new version features three layers of veneer, reinforcing the vulnerable narrow area where the back bends to meet the seat. Marc Thorpe's Husk chair for Moroso—its name inspired by the leaves surrounding an ear of corn—tapers gently around the body and extends thronelike, above the sitter's head, to form an inviting nook. And the latest extension of Piero Lissoni's Season Mini ottoman series for Viccarbe packs a punch thanks to concealed wheels and a built-in handle.
From innovative ottomans and functional modulars to reinvented side chairs, here are 28 recent product introductions in the seating category. All products have also been featured in Interior Design’s Spring Market Tabloid.
