Saw this chair at a friend's house and thought, "Cool shape. Bet it's uncomfortable."

It was not so.

On sitting down, the Wegner CHO7 turned out to be supremely comfortable with a soft leather padded seat and a shape that seems to support you all around. We could imagine gravitating towards this chair in order to read or go through mail. It is that comfortable.

Available from Troy, Zeitgeist and Hive Modern ($1988), it comes in red, white oak and black with a choice of leather or fabric upholstery options with a lacquer or oiled finish. (Thanks, John!)
