The FM03 Lounge Chair

View all 10 Photos

An iconic mid-century modern lounge chair.

Designed by Cees Braakman in 1953, the FM03 lounge chair represents the best of the mid-century modern design. The chair was created during a period of time when Braakman worked as a chief designer for Pastoe and was also one of the leading figures of the Dutch Design movement. Distinctive as well as refined, the chair features a striking contrast between the thin steel legs and the thick, plush seat and backrest cushions. Exposed solid oak frames support the backrest and seat, adding a creative accent to the design. While minimalist, the lounge chair adds maximum visual impact to a space. That’s because it features a perfect balance between clean lines, dynamic shapes, and simple geometric forms.

Pastoe produces the chair in a range of upholstery fabrics and colors. Apart from the Textafoam Sneak version that pays homage to the original char from 1953, the brand also offers customers a choice between five Kvadrat textiles. The different upholstery textures and colors enhance the design in different ways. Either way, the chair looks timeless and complements any interior. Plus, it provides ultimate seating comfort with its low profile, angled design, and comfortable cushions. Customers can order the Braakman FM03 lounge chair from Pastoe’s online store in other fabrics, available on request. The Textafoam Sneak model costs around $940, while the chairs with Kvadrat upholstery cost around $1,120. Photographs© Pastoe.
