From royal privilege to design furniture highlight
Did you know that sitting on specially designed furniture used to be a privilege of the rulers? Meanwhile the common citizens had to make do with the floor. And even if these times are over, a beautiful piece of seating furniture is still something special. Top
designers are breaking with the supposedly everyday and constantly developing new models. There are hardly any limits to creativity. There is also a great variety of materials. Plastic, metal, textile or wood - material and design together result in unique seating furniture. The number of manufacturers is huge. The following have established themselves as manufacturers of seating furniture with special designs:
Arper - Designer seating furniture with leather upholstery
The Italian company specialises in bar stools, seating furniture and tables. The products are characterised by a clear, direct and simple design. The materials we like to use are leather or high-quality fabrics. The attention to detail can also be seen in popular Arper product classics such as the infinitely versatile Catifa chair series with its fresh, efficient casualness and endless combination possibilities.
Kristalia - lived minimalism
Kristalia's minimalist design furniture is also "made in Italy". The seating furniture of the company founded in 1994 has a high recognition value and is always reduced to the essentials. Probably Kristalia's most famous piece of seating furniture is the Elephant chair. It is now also available with wooden legs instead of the classic chromed base.
Pedrali - traditional and innovative designer chairs
Tradition and innovation in perfect balance - this is what distinguishes the Italian family business Pedrali, which was founded in 1963. The diverse assortment is still produced exclusively in Italy. Durability and excellent design characterise the design furniture. The straight-line chairs are available in materials such as wood, acrylic glass, leather or polycarbonate. They can be integrated wonderfully into the interior.
Magis - historical style combined with modern materials
Some Magis seating furniture has real cult status. Almost everyone has seen the bar stool Bombo or the Chair One somewhere before. The latter was designed by Konstantin Grcic from Munich and captivates with its exciting geometric lines. The Proust armchair creates a symbiosis of historical style and ultra-modern materials and technologies - a copy of the 18th century Régence style
Plank - timeless and functional wooden seating furniture
The Plank company, founded in 1893, has its headquarters in South Tyrol. Plank specialises in designer chairs, armchairs and barstools as well as tables and garden furniture. The seating furniture is timeless and functional and wood is the main material. Plan has various chairs with a pure wooden frame. Plank also has armchairs and stools in its range.
&tradition - sofas in retro look
The Danish label is relaunching classic Scandinavian furniture design. Keeping in touch with old masters and developing the classics of tomorrow at the same time is a declared goal of the still young company from Copenhagen. Sofas and armchairs from the Fly series, for example, are presented in an interesting retro look.
Mater - designer chairs in Scandinavian design
The Danish manufacturer Mater has made sustainability its top priority. Besides sustainable raw materials, perfect craftsmanship is a trademark of the label. The timeless seating furniture fits easily into many interiors and is an excellent combination with other designer furniture. A real classic is the J80 chair, whose seat is made of braided paper.
