mod squad seating.

there is something lately about super sleek, simple yet genius-ly complicated, crisp, clean mod squad-esque seating out there. do you remember the show "the mod squad"? i'm getting off track, but it was one of my favorite shows growing up (not sure why, and what does that say about me? :) so when i see very mod furniture, my mind wanders to the title mod squad. so that explains that!

how quickly to you want to run over to these "pumpkin" chairs designed by pierre paulin for linea los angeles. revolutionary 50's-esque style available for all of us now, in 2010. fabulous! here.
the easy quality of these "float" lounge chairs can add that much needed "relaxed" element to a well...let's say, more uptight space :) here.

lately i've been dying to transform my kitchen table and chairs to add an eclectic variety of seating and variety of materials. this "jam" dining chair from calligaris is an italian designed modern dining chair available in red, brown, green, and orange back with seat interior in white. i want one of these, i really do! here.

what a perfect textural element the la luna chair by kenneth cobonpue adds to any space in need of a different material piece, like this rattan. "rattan splits are masterfully woven into two separate patterns that morph into one another over a frame of rattan vines and wood." the very organic, round shape throws off the stiffness of the rattan material. really unique! here.

this super sleek "bbc" chair by reza feiz, a self taught designer with a philosophy of "strength in simplicity, creates pieces of uncommon character." (it also comes in a swivel model, can you imagine?) here.

i love the quiet, soft spoken nature of the design of this "mota" armchair from viesso. here.

these plump "anda" chairs by pierre paulin for ligne roset at linea. "anda" curves around to envelope its occupant." here.

the afra chair by paola lenti, who develops their designs from essential nature. here.

the luxurious simplicity of the rondi chair by viesso. here.

where do you stand on mod squad designs like these? could you at least have one fabulous piece in your favorite space? or maybe you'd enjoy a whole house very modern in design? how about you clients? if you or your clients are in the market for anything modern, anything luxurious, anything very one-of-a-kind, head over to furniture seen's website, here, for a whole bunch of ideas, options, and modern up and coming designers and product.

hoping these fun designs got you going this monday morning. i sure needed it! enjoy!
