6 Vintage and New Lounge Chairs That Are Still Relevant

Mix mix of high and low, new vs old is what gives a space that lived in feel. When there are only new items an interior can feel like it’s lacking personality or purpose. You certainly don’t have to sacrifice style or durability if you want to incorporate vintage styles though, you might be surprised with how many new pieces that are currently being produced were actually designed decades ago. Here is a collection I put together of new and old lounge chairs, mostly Scandinavian designs, that were first created long ago yet still feel as current and modern as when they were first conceived.

Clerici Chair, designed by Konstantin Crcic in 2013 for Mattiazi
Frank Gehry’s Easy Edges cardboard chair, designed before I was born, 1982
Bruno Mathsson’s Chaise Lounge from the 1930’s (similar here)
Kaare Klint’s Safari chair and footsrest, 1933
Alvar Aalto’s Paimio armchair, 1931
Poul Kjaerholm designed PK22 lounge chair in 1956
