Palms II Chair

With his architectural background and roots in Chicago's progressive design scene, it's hardly surprising Jeff Vioski honed his design talents with his self-titled furniture collection. Now based in L.A. but with several showrooms across the U.S., the VIOSKI collection is a modernist's configurative dream. Exhibiting fine mid-century modern aesthetics, the collection puts beautiful form in its high functionality.

Nicholas Sectional

Working with the highest quality coverings (Glant Textiles, Spinneybeck Leather and Designtex Fabrics) and skilled craftsmanship in structural construction, VIOSKI emphasise longevity as well as comfort in each unique, handmade-to-order piece. Accentuating the company's promise to furnish your lifestyle with forms to please the body as much as the eye is the equal assurance of customisation; some pieces, such as the sectional sofas and Isola Lounge, are flexible by design, but custom orders requiring specific modifications are welcomed (a 34-foot Nicholas Sectional for a Hollywood Hills home which required a 75-foot crane to install is exemplary of the lengths to which they will go to ensure client satisfaction.)

Manhattan Bed

But if relaxing design purism isn't comfort enough, VIOSKI's environmentally ecological and socio-ecological ethics should have you sitting comfortably. With three levels of environmentally conscious manufacturing on offer, you can recline sublime knowing that your clean style is sustainable and the durability can be left to posterity. Equally important, though, is the social awareness aspect and theirs is prudent. Aside from the goodness of their hearts, they adhere to the sadly seldom seen yet simple business equation; be good to your employees and they will be good to you. So, if you like your style with substance, you're in good company with VIOSKI.

DS 152

Combining three of my favourite things – retro, round and orange, the DS 152 chair from de Sede has it all. Literally. The flat screen monitor pictured is also available as an option so that you can transform your ultra-comfortable sofa into a space age control centre for TV, video, DVD or Internet.

With enough room for two people, the DS 152's oval styling can provide the perfect snuggle place. If, however, you are prone to fighting over the remote or your other half simply doesn’t like the colour, then black and white versions are also available, so why not get two!

Round Swivelling Tub Chair From Dwell

If like me you are a fan of sixties cool and like to add just a touch of it to your home, the Round Swivelling Tub Chair from Dwell is a great way to give a nod back to the future, embracing the optimism of that decade's designers. With it's ABS plastic outer, faux leather inner and chrome base the chair comes in at a more than reasonable price point. Personally I am rather taken by the white shown above, but there's also a black option for those wanting something a little more understated. You could even buy both and add them to a swinging monochrome lair.

Archipelo From Leolux

I’ve often mentioned preferences for cubic or spherical but I’m ashamed to say I’ve quite neglected the irregular. They say symmetry is beauty but they obviously haven’t seen the Archipel range by Leolux. As the name suggests, you can now create your own archipelago of contemporary comfort. Catering to whimsical moods, there is also the scope to adjust the arms and backrests for a piece of furniture that is as unique individual as you are.

Curacao Sofa From Indera

As soon as I saw the Curacao sofa, designed by Fabiaan Van Severen for Indera, I felt like we were old friends. I needed to nurtured by the soft, welcoming lines of this ever-so-comfortable yet ever-so-contemporary chair as if it just, well, fitted somehow.

Intrigued then was I to find that Van Severen’s philosophy compliments my visual instincts. He believes that “furniture and objects have to take their place as if they have always been there”. And boy, I think he did a good job of interpreting that belief into the Curacao. Visually it looks like it has always belonged in my living room. Practically too because little be known at first glance, the back rail of the sofa can be adjusted so that it is the perfect depth for you. Had we been introduced at a young age, my Curacao could have grown with my lengthening legs. Always there, always perfect.

Made from felt fabrics with flatsheet steel feet, the Curacao is available in range of colours including grey, fuchsia and sky blue.
