This chair is closest to zero-gravity you can get (presumably without actually going into space and experiencing it there, together with freeze-dried food and suits that invariably make you look fat). The Gravity chair can rest in a variety of positions depending on your mood or task; from upright as an office chair to rocked right back for those noon-time naps. The price for it is $2310 from Stokke.

The dried liana is made flexible and easy to handle by hot water steam and wrapped on the frame made of wood. When the liana is dried again it is very strong and hard to break.

If you are interested in ultra-modern, minimalist and/or industrial design, the Soft Pipe Lounge is a piece of furniture worth a close look. The seat was designed by Samanta Snidaro and Andrea Fino and made from large iron pipes and has a soft, but not exactly plush, leather cover over the actual seat area of the chaise.

Bouloum Lounge Chair

The chair has human body shape and could be great addition to other human-like furniture pieces like cd holders which I already covered. The Bouloum lounge chair was named after a childhood friend of its designer, Olivier Mourgue, who took the charismatic seat with him when he traveled. As comfortable as it is provocative, one simply must experience the Bouloum to fully understand it. But be warned… once experienced, you will simply have to have one of your own…for about $950.

Teddy Bear Chair
