— Using old world upholstery techniques, Andrea Mihalik uses bold fabric choices to create modern classic chairs.
Have a seat, folks! From Kenneth Cobonpue's chairs made from fabric tubes woven over steel frames to classic American woodworking, these are 10 of my favorite chairs from the Architectural Digest Home Show.
• Kenneth Cobonpue — The Cabaret chair, made of fabric tubes woven over a steel frame, is available in both indoor and outdoor versions.
• Kenneth Cobonpue — The Rapunzel chair made with hand coiled upholstered foam that is woven over a steel frame, with matching seat and back cushions. Also available as for indoor and outdoor uses.
• BDDW — There's so much to love about this chair. The shape, the low seat, the dark blue upholstery and the cast iron feet. It seems at once masculine and feminine, modern but old-fashioned.
• New Traditionalists — Hello, plaid! The company's Chair No. One Eighty in plaid upholstery with leather piping detail.
• New Traditionalists — The buckled orange leather straps on the back of this dining chair are such a fun juxtaposition with the chair's traditional frame and sheepskin upholstery.
• New Traditionalists — Likewise, the lace up back on this green barstool is a great unexpected detail.
• Craft Fabricators — By all appearances, the Spring Chair doesn't seem like it should be comfortable. Made from bent steel, the seat on the colorful green chair is actually quite ... well, springy!
• Wild Chairy — Using old world upholstery techniques, Andrea Mihalik uses bold fabric choices to create modern classic chairs.
• Keating Woodworks — Who can resist a classic rocking chair? Geoffrey Keating is a fifth generation furniture maker with an awesome attention to detail and love of craftsmanship.
• O & G — The eye popping colors on the chairs from this Rhode Island studio give a modern update to classic American designs.
