Dear readers, sorry for the month-long delay. After gaining blogging momentum in September, October said "Nah", and so here we are in the cooler days of November.
 
Hello again. :)

Have you heard the news? 'Warm' is in.

Here are 5 creative chairs designed to keep you looking cool and feeling warm at the same time.

 

1. Autumn/Winter by Aga Brzostek

Fashion meets furniture with this chair designed by Polish designer -- and experienced cold-weather survivor -- Aga Brzostek. Perfectly warm, partially messy, Autumn/Winter was designed after stylish pullover sweaters. Its wool layers and soft foam base make this chair winter-proof and a quirky purchase this fall. (+50 bonus points for pockets.)

 

2. Snug by Kumeko

You will definitely be feeling warm in this wool felt sleeve lined with stuffed jersey knit tubing. Like many designs by the Prague-based studio, Kumeko, the tubes are knit within the wool to create a warming 'heat element-like' 3D effect. The design screams 'heat' physically and visually.

 

3. Tie White Armchair by Katerina Stavrinou Moleski

No blanket? 'Knot' a problem.

Katarina Stavrinou Moleski is the master-crafter behind this cozy chair. Stuffed organic cotton tubes wrap around its steel frame to balance soft and hard aesthetics and lines. The Tie White Armchair provides warm, wearable, material in a contained form. Discover her process here.

 

4. Cocoon Chair by Les M

Part sleeping bag, part chair, this statement design is suspiciously simple, practically functional, and machine washable. Enough said.

 

5. Smok Chair by Hans Sapperlot

The Smok Chair adds a sleeker fit to woven wool seating. Designer Hans Sapperlot's invisible stitches create a mesmerizing 'smocking' texture with the water resistant mountain sheep wool. This modern stitchwork has even been extended to Sapperlot's rug and lamp designs.  

Stay warm everyone.
