The Stockholm Furniture + Light Fair was amazing. I feel like I learned so much about the who the major Scandinavian vendors are and all about their lines and where they see design moving. More about that later this week.
Right now, though, I want to show you one of my most favorite pieces from the fair. The Offecct Oyster Wood Low designed by Michael Sodeau. I discovered this beauty near the end of my second day at the fair, so I was pretty tired when I plunked down to send yet another Instagram photo. This chair definitely has visual appeal, elegant and not too heavy, but the shape is also so perfectly suited for lounging. The seat dips back enough to be cozy but still offers enough leverage to get back up again. The arms fan out just enough to give you a personal bubble to relax and yet the foot print of the chair is quite small. It’s like that magical feeling where it’s larger on the inside than the outside. And I love all the little custom details, like the six different seam stitch designs in 12 different colors and all of the options for fabrics and leather. The legs are a solid white pigmented oak but has an option for a chrome swivel and foot stool and/or a high back. The wonderfully small but large Oyser would fit perfectly in a large lobby but also the corner of an office or the corner of my living room.
