Design by Antonio Citterio, 2011. By Vitra. With its generous padding, inviting armrests and high back, the Grand Repos is an expressive wing chair, visually exuding the kind of comfort one expects from a large, swivel lounge chair. Yet the Grand Repos has modest dimensions, lending itself well for smaller spaces. With a concealed synchronized mechanism, the backrest and seat can be adjusted to a variety of opening angles — from a comfortable sitting position to a relaxing resting position. This transformation in the angle of the seat and back allows for supreme sitting comfort and optimum back support throughout the entire, smooth range of motion. The chair can also be locked in any position.
Design by Eero Saarinen, 1948. By Knoll. Eero Saarinen arrived at the concept for his 1948 Womb Chair when challenged by Florence Knoll to design a chair of supreme comfort — one she could really "curl up in". With its steel rod base and plush upholstered frame, the Womb Chair is designed to facilitate a relaxed sitting posture, providing comfort and a sense of security. The lounger achieves its sculpted, enveloping form from a molded, reinforced fiberglass shell, which is layered in dense foam and topped with separate seat and back cushions in polyester fiber over foam core. Today one of Knoll's most recognizable designs, the Womb Lounge Chair can be customized in frame finishes and a wide range of upholstery options to make this mid-century classic uniquely yours.

Design by Alvar Aalto, 1931. By Artek. Perhaps the best-known of all Alvar Aalto's furniture pieces. The Paimio Chair was named for the town in which Aalto designed a hospital and all its furnishings. Vaguely inspired by the Wassily Chair, Aalto resisted the use of metal and chose native birch wood for this shaped masterpiece. Sculptural, comfortable, the Chair is framed by two closed loops of masterfully bent laminated wood which create the arms, legs and floor runners. The suspended seat of bent plywood features a rolled headrest and seat base with a seat back angle that the designer contended was the best position for patients' optimal breathing. It's certainly succeeded in offering comfortable lounge seating and remarkable styling. Select Black or White finish.
