Best of Four: Side Chairs (a little more formal)

Charme Chair by Archirivolto Design

Lately, I've noticed a few new side chairs that I really like. For today's roundup, I thought I'd get all the info and share them with you. They run the range in pricing, but the style of all of them is strong and simple, with a bit of dramatic flair. These chairs are a bit more formal and (most) come in shiny black or white, which seems to be a bit of a trend as high contrast is "in."...

• Charme Chair by Archirivolto Design
• This Italian confection is made of "Electrostatic Powder Coat Cast Aluminum" - white or black - but comes with a soft leather seat. Available through Janus et Cie. I saw originally in this pic from Blueprint (above) and loved the contrast between hard metal edge and girly cute shape. Pricey.

Ladderback Chair by West Elm
• From the good folks at West Elm, comes an catchy new, affordable design that echoes the classic Shaker chairs as well as Super Leggera chair by Gio Ponti. This one comes in a dark brown and a white finish in solid wood with a natural woven seat. Affordable.

Camogli Chair by Piero Lissoni
• This is an old favorite and a rare bird, but I recently saw it again while trolling Architonic. It is made in oak or “carbone” oak, while the back is in a straw covering. It is made by Porro of Italy and used to be available from Troy (since closed) and now should be found at BY Showroom, Porro's joint venture with Boffi and Living Divani at 142 Greene Street, NYC. Very pricey.

Salt Chair by DWR
• This is another new take on a classic design, finished with a high gloss paint that makes the whole thing POP. This chair is extremely slim and designed to fit into very tight spaces or next to others. It is also the most affordable of the bunch. Made of Solid European beech, beech plywood and water-based paint.
