Here at Apartment Therapy, we're huge fans of the classics: Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair, the Bertoia wire mesh side chair, anything Eames. These designs will never go out of style. But what if you're looking for something a little different? Maybe you love the classics, but want something for your own home that you won't see in everyone else's. We've compiled a list of classic furniture designs, and paired them with new designs that have the same feel, but are just a little bit different.
Redefined materials make a familiar shape feel fresh. Left: Eames LCM, $1,199 from Hive Modern. Right: Easy Chair from Studio W M.
Top: Laccio Tables by Marcel Breuer, $789 for coffee table and $558 for side table, both from Knoll. Bottom: Tati Tables by Broberg & Ridderstrale for Asplund, starting at £988.00, at Twenty Twenty One.
Left: Jens Risom Lounge Chair, starting at $938, from DWR. Right: Camping Chair in Leather from Normann Copenhagen, $3,500.
Left: Artek 60 stool by Alvar Aalto, $260 at All Modern. Right: Swedese Spin Stool, $360 from Huset.
Two stunning designs, two equally stunning price tags. Top: The Eames La Chaise, $10, 635 at Hive Modern. Bottom: David Weeks' Adna Chaise for Matter, $21,500.
And if these designs are a bit our of your reach, don't despair. Coming soon to Apartment Therapy is a budget version of this post, where we'll pair classics designs side-by-side with similar, more affordable designs (but not knockoffs!). So stay tuned.
