Chair of the Month – July

This intricate and compelling chair, called The Nido was constructed by Estudio Persona. The inspiring design team behind the Nido is Emiliana Gonzalez, an industrial designer, and Jessie Young, a conceptual artist. Commissioned to design a high-profile actress’s home, this duo came together to launch Estudio Persona. Their furniture combines contrasting shapes and volumes, hard geometric lines and soft natural materials.  The shape of this modern lounge chair is inspired by its rounded seat, “Nido,” meaning “nest” in Spanish. The shape of this chair evokes the image of a delicate egg being perfectly cradled in its seat.

THE STUNNER: The Guernica Lounge Chair from Laura Kirar’s ground breaking collection for McGuire Furniture. This glorious piece of collectible furniture has undeniable presence and is truly the epitome and definition of ‘statement piece.’ The craftsmanship and engineering that is required to create this gorgeous, yet edgy jewel is much more complicated than it seemingly appears. Each lounger requires a custom-made needle that painstakingly pulls contrasting smooth and textured laces at variegated lengths through 3,500 holes in tiny honeycomb caning. This custom process takes a single artisan several weeks to complete.
