Couch Potato

September 23, 2009

I know someone who is looking for a new couch, here are a few suggestions.

Let’s start off with Philippe Starck‘s design for Kartell– The Bubble Club.

Its more of an outdoor couch because its made entirely of plastic, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting one.



I really like this couch. It’s called “One For All” and can be found on the Chillout Lounge website.

There are 18 different combinations for this couch as well.



Maybe this elegant sleeper from Gus Modern could work. Also available through Feel More Human.




Here’s a couch from Haus Modern Living.



Leather is nice. This Mark Goetz design by Herman Miller is classic.



Ok, now we’re getting into my favorite era- Mid Century Modern.

One Stop Modern offers these next two pieces.

Below: The Le Corbuiser reproduction set



I won’t even pretend these next couple from Retro Modern Design are going to be inexpensive, but they are original mid century design pieces. If I won the lottery this is where the money is going.

Below: Daybed and Sofa. 1958 design for OPE Furniture, Sweden.




The following might not be couches, but they are meant to be sat on. Food for thought.

The Below The Clouds website offers the “Coral” seating module by Studio Aisslinger.



Also found on Below The Clouds is this offering by DrawMeaSheep. Eco-friendly for sure.




How about something for kids- here’s a Glider Activity Station from Green Play.



Here’s the “Ivy Chair” by h220430 Design Studios in Tokyo.



This is one of my all time favorites- The “Clutch Chair” by Scott Jarvie.



And finally, here are a few entries from this year’s “Chair Affair” competition conducted by AIAS/ICPF where students were asked to create a chair out of corrugated cardboard.
