Fredrik Färg's 'Coat' chair

This past weekend we caught the closing day of the Getty's expansive video art exhibition, California Video, which included a piece by a favourite artist of mine, John Baldessari. In a video piece titled Ed Henderson Suggests Sound Tracks for Photographs, Baldessari asked his student to blindly select a musical accompaniment for photographs. We thought it might be fun to do something similar on a weekly basis, but with furniture designs or interior space as the subject in question...

Taking a quick glance at the design above, tell us what you believe would be the best song that represents the design shown above (song name or link to streaming/downloadable song). I'll start things off with my choice:

Autumn in Connecticut - by Elmer Bernstein: there's a somber sophistication of this chair that reminds me of the Douglas Sirk inspired film, Far From Heaven...like beautifully tailored sorrow.
