At the beginning, it was going in a different direction, but after making various models, prototypes and considering BD’s design team’s different perspectives on the matter, the result has inevitably drawn toward what is now the Gaulino chair, which was designed nearly 30 years ago. We did not envision it so, but the ergonomics and the aesthetic coherence of this piece has taken us toward a solution much like the Gaulino chair, an heiress of Gaudí and Mollino, and have decided to conserve the name.” OSCAR TUSQUETS The Gaulino Easy Chair...

Shaggy Bean Bag Chair Cover Icelandic Sheepskin - Made in Australia
Located in Dural, AU
Imagine the kids relaxing in this eco-friendly and genuine sheepskin beanbag while they read, learn or play their favorite video game. This large and long wool shaggy bean bag chair is handcrafted from the finest long wool Icelandic sheepskin resulting in the most amazing shaggy and tactile appearance with a wool range of 5 to 6 inches (8 - 15cm) in length. The natural white color is unaltered, preserving the natural beauty of the original wool color, as the Natural white may come with hints of a rich creamy undertone. Sheepskin qualities are underestimated, as they are cool in the summer, as the wool hollow fiber absorbs heat and releases the heat over seven times faster than a synthetic fiber while in the colder months, the wool warming properties keep the body snuggle and warm making this sheepskin bean bag chair the perfect comfort décor for all year round. Whether styled in the kid's bedroom to help with learning, placed in the living room for additional seating, or in the cinema room for the ultimate gaming experience, this long wool shaggy bean bag will be loved and enjoyed by all. Our Icelandic sheepskins are carefully sourced directly from Europe, using only natural by-products and eco-friendly processing, without the use of harsh and toxic chemicals that are damaging to the environment and humans, making them safer and healthier inside the home for everyone to enjoy. Each Icelandic sheepskin beanbag chair is individually handcrafted in Australia by eluxury home with expertise and craftsmanship and most importantly made to strict child safety law. The sheepskin beanbags come with an additional internal cotton bean fill cover, a safety child lock zipper and a genuine leather base for extra durability and easy care. Eluxury home are artisan makers of authentic sheepskin beanbags and offers this design in a collection of long wool sheepskin colors, View image gallery for color selection. This sheepskin bean bag does not come with bean fill but can be requested upon additional charge. The dimensions of the sheepskin beanbag are calculated according to the pattern but will differ according to the amount of fill used. Features: handcrafted from genuine Icelandic sheepskins colour: natural white (may have a slight creamy yellow undertone) custom make in other colors dimensions: 990cm width x 80cm height (+ wool pile) long and shaggy wool pile r Individually handcrafted in Australia Made to strict Australian Child...

Pair Modernist Bauhaus Art Deco Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier
Located in Topeka, KS
Gorgeous pair of vintage Modernist, Bauhaus, or Art Deco Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier. Comprised of chrome plated tubular steel frames, spring seat platforms and back cross straps, black leather arm rest straps, and hair-on cowhide leather upholstery. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that these are vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. There are some worn areas in the hair on the seats and normal cracking in the arm straps, but they are intact. The chrome is in good condition. We have replaced a few of the springs. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1950-1970’s. Mooooooove over boring seating… We have an ASTONISHING pair of Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier!! They are absolutely stunning and comprised of minimalist chrome plated tubular steel frames, spring seat platform and back cross straps, black leather arm rest straps, and they feature a handsome brown, white, and black multicolored hair-on cowhide leather upholstery. IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL!!! The Le Corbusier Basculant LC1 Sling Chair is the best-known version of the reinterpretation of the British "officers chair"… and now they need to be YOUR chairs. A side note: The owner of our store personally knows that these were purchased pre-owned around 1977, so we know that these chairs were made prior to that date. Probably 1950-1970’s. Thonet was the original manufacturer in the 1930’s and in 1960 Cassina obtained those rights. So even though they are not marked they are most likely Thonet or Cassina. Either way, they are FABULOUS!!! The seats are ergonomic in design with a back angle creating supreme comfort and the clean lines establish a timeless appeal. This pair will blend in beautifully with your other Bauhaus or Art Deco style furnishings or they will make a bold statement on their own. They will be wonderful seating across from the sofa in the living room, as occasional seating in the family room, in your bedroom or dressing area, or facing the fireplace in the study. The captivating combination of the chrome plated tubular steel and the natural cowhide exude warmth and luxury while remaining stylish and functional. These chairs are EXACTLY what the designer ordered!! Le Corbusier was born in 1887 as Charles Edouard Jeanneret and is widely considered the most important Modernist chair designer in France. He began experimenting with furniture design in 1928 after seeing a model apartment designed by the architect Charlotte Perriland whom he invited to join his studio. His cousin Pierre Jeanneret also collaborated on many of his designs and Thonet was the first manufacturer of his designs in the 1930’s. Along with Walter Gropius, Mies Van der Rohe, and Theo Van Doesburg, Le Corbusier was considered the father of Modernism. He created a range of chairs that express his ideas with great sophistication. The Le Corbusier Basculant Chair...

Unique Chairs, Sofas and Other Seating for Sale on 1stDibs

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.
