The best designs are unconventional, challenge the norm and make a lasting impression. Hauteville Wooden Legs is a great example. Following on the footsteps of the hugely successful Hauteville Concrete Chair, French brand Lyon Beton introduces a new version of the popular design that maintains the same striking mid-century modern silhouette and adds a twist to warm up the industrial aesthetic.

A new version of the popular design that maintains the same striking mid-century modern silhouette and adds a twist to warm up the industrial aesthetic.

Designed by Julie Legros and Henri Lavallard Boget, the original concrete chair was a hit with those who appreciate good design and was soon joined by other complementing armchairs and bar chairs, all made from concrete and steel. The comfortable rocking chair was the first to feature a warmer organic accent thanks to its plywood runners, but the Hauteville Wooden Legs takes the contrast between materials and textures to a new level of sophistication. Blending brutalism and modern design, the chair provides an intriguing and creative variation on the original chair, becoming a distinct addition to the collection. The seat features the familiar ergonomic shape and boasts subtle textures across the surface of the gray concrete; ultra-sanded to perfection, it features a smooth finish that elevates the raw material to a new level of refinement. The wooden legs come in two options: light beech or dark oak, both complementing the cool urban look and feel of the seat with a touch of natural charm. Expert craftsmanship and elegant minimalism combine with functionality. The legs are packaged as disassembled for more convenient shipping, while the versatility of the chair makes it a perfect choice for virtually any décor. Whether it becomes a part of a family dining room or a sleek office, this stylish designer furniture will make any space look memorable. Hauteville Wooden Legs is available on presale now at a mid-high retail price of $479. The first orders will be shipped beginning from January 16 2017.
