Dwell Magazine April 2011: The Cheap Seats

May 9, 2011

“There are lots of handsome chairs out there, but sitting beauties that cost $250 or less are a rarer breed. Our picks run the gamut from traditional (the wooden, Shaker-inspired Salt or the Thonet-designed Era, the quintessential cafe chair) to the downright futuristic (we’re looking at you, oddly anthropomorphic Dr. Yes). We sat, swayed, shook, stacked; we hefted them into the air; we typed, ate, and made grand conversational hand gestures. Here’s how they stood up in our sitting showdown.”

Easy Living Outdoors … Kartell

May 4, 2011

Contemporary or transitional, its easy to live outdoor with Kartell

Tip Top.  The perfect outdoor side table!  Statuesque pedestal base, colored or clear lens for the top.

La Boheme is sculpture, but commercially rated as a seat.  A collection of fun colors makes this a perfect multi to use perching your bum or your rum just where you want it!

Dr. No / Dr.Na  … the classic cafe setup!  Often copied, oh the flattery!  But, when you want the toughest, commercial grade goods to stand up (even at home) … stick with Kartell!

Magic Hole is the new hot seat from bad boy Philippe Starck.  Chair or sofa, we think it provides a wonderful contemporary counterpart to its older brother “Bubble…”

Bubble Club … everybody knows, no?  If ubiquitous, it still performs like a star and adds a twinkle to your eye … who can resist setting the rolled arm sofa on the porch or out in the yard without getting a call from the neighborhood association!

Ami Ami … a wonderful newer edition with woven texture.  The perfect place for an outdoor lunch in your wet bathing suit or day-in-day-out service at  your favorite outdoor eatery.

Quick delivery, fun color, commercial construction, and long-lasting aesthetics.  Don’t think, just follow your emotion … get outdoors and have fun!  Its easy!

Best of all … through March 19th, save 15% on all things Kartell right here at SR Hughes.

Salone Sit Down

April 13, 2011

I have to say, that after a day of running hither and yon, it feels good to take a seat.

Some favorites from the day …

Denny from Giorgetti:

High back or low.  With ottoman or without.  Seemingly Scandinavian influence, but detailed in Canaletto walnut as only Giorgetti can.  Supremely comfortable.  Warm style.

Then, Mobius caught my eye, so I gave it a try…

Saddle leather with zigzag stitching stretched as structure over the frame.  A sculptural walnut set of gams and this is one handsome seat.  I think it becomes a flat-out show stopper when it grows up to become a wing chair:

And finally (nobody can resist) you can relax at the end of a long day at the Salone with a glass of Prosecco at the bar in a Philippe Starck bar stool from Kartell…  My Ghost barstool prayers have been answered!

That’s all for now … Off to Zona Tortona tomorrow to investigate what’s shakin down by the Navigli!  Stay tuned!

TGIF Pull up a chair…….

April 8, 2011

Thank goodness it’s Friday.  Whether it’s time to kick up your heels and share a toast with friends or wind down and relax, the right bar stool is a must.  Here are some of our favorites……

Knoll Bertoia is not only a beauty, but a classic.  You choose the seat pad and can spice it up with some color or keep it smooth and neutral.

Alias Spaghetti stool is a chameleon of sorts where you choose from clear or colored PVC or hide.   You will rest easy in the stool with a price range of $310-735 per

With Kartell’s Charles Ghost, the sky is the limit.   Indoor, Outdoor, Stackable, Colors, Clear… choose.

And then we have Cassina Cab bar stool by Mario Bellini and it’s love at first sight.

So whether you’re Budweiser in a bottle or shaken and not stirred, SR Hughes has the bar stool for you.
