The Leaf is a rocking chair designed by the UK based Lime Studio. The construction is basically made out of two pieces of curved birch plywood padded with a high density cushion that’s wrapped in removable, washable fabric. How sweet is this? Simple, beautiful, comfortable and rocks you to sleep. I love you Leaf. I. Love. You.

Lounge chair was designed by the futuristic German industrial designer Luigi Colani in 1968. The shell is wrapped in quality fabric and nested in a chrome-plated steel frame. The organic form offers maxiumu comfort ”for both the young and the young at heart who like a dash of extravagance” (original text from ’68). ”The earth is round, all the heavenly bodies are round; they all move on round or elliptical orbits. This same image of circular globe-shaped mini worlds orbiting around each other follows us right down to the microcosmos. We are even aroused by round forms in species propagation related eroticism. Why should I join the straying mass who want to make everything angular?”

I’m starting to feel sorry for the new furniture designs because I’ve been neglecting them. This one is well worth the mention – the Lobster chair was designed by Lund & Paarmann for Verikon Furniture and it consists of laminated, bend wood structure with a walnut veneer at the back and stands on a swivel that is chrome-plated steel. The design goes hand in hand with another piece of furniture called Shelly. Both are, of course, manufactured in Denmark. Who would’ve thought!

Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg chair for the Copenhagen Radisson SAS hotel in 1958. There are very little objects that leave you speechless and if there ever was a chair that did just that, it has to be this one. The design is 50 years old but will never be outdated. The inspiration for The Egg is said to be the Womb chair by Eero Saarinen, which is amazing, but it seems like Jacobsen added a little flow to his creation that makes it so easy on the eye. To commemorate the occasion, Fritz Hansen, the chair manufacturer, is introducing 999 limited edition Golden Egg chairs with a bronze foot. They will be available in selected stores from February 1st. Oh Egg… Someday I’ll get you and we’ll spin around all day.

Skateboarder Pierre-André Senizergues started a shoe company 16 years ago. After moving from Brittany to California, Etnies grew. He now got to a point in his career when he teamed up with Gil Le Bon De Lapointe, an interior designer, to do some furniture pieces out of skateboards. They called the project Skate Study House (site launches next week) – modern design classics remastered with skateboards. I have to say that they look great. They will be available for purchase from Colette in Paris. Fingers crossed mine comes with Arto Saari in the box.
