chair design

Contemporary chair design finds the perfect balance between style, comfort, and innovation. On this page, you can find some of the best designs created by established or up and coming designers. From more traditional to futuristic, from ultra-minimalist to intricately crafted, designer chairs never blend into the background. While they effortlessly create focal points in living spaces, offices, or public areas, these designs also put a focus on comfort and convenience. They fit into modern living spaces or outdoor areas and they easily adapt to modern, fast-paced lifestyles. Practical and designed with adaptability in mind, these chairs look at home in sprawling interiors or compact apartments.

Like other types of contemporary furniture, chair design provides the perfect opportunity to bring imaginative concepts to life. For example, a chair that features “pages” of fabric that allow the user to change the look of the design by flipping the material and uncovering another color. A futuristic but organic chair created with the help of artificial intelligence. Chairs with metal mesh panels or modular designs that adapt to different needs. Lounge chairs that bring together marble and leather in sculptural designs.

Naturally, designers have also started to implement sustainable principles into their chair design projects. Some of these chairs feature eco-friendly materials like reclaimed wood waste, recycled plastic, or natural fibers. Others come to life via ethical, sustainable manufacturing processes. Even the classic wooden chair has an upgraded build, featuring wood sourced from responsibly managed forests. Browse through these articles to discover the array of ground-breaking and simply stunning chairs created by the world’s most talented designers.
