Form versus function? Style versus substance? These design dilemmas pop up when creating a lounge area. You want a space that invites people to sit and stay a while, a space that’s multifunctional without being too utilitarian. Here are a few of our favorite pieces of lounge furniture to spark your imagination.
Regency’s Princeton Leather Lounge Chair has tuffed black leather for old school sophistication while boasting a modern, streamlined profile. The armless style makes it a casual spot for students to work, but it also looks at home in an upscale bar or hotel lobby.
For a timeless look, it’s hard to top the taupe Office Star’s SL 1870 Series Leather Club Chair. Your guests will wonder if they’re in a lounge or a Ralph Lauren ad. I kid, but light-colored lounge chairs are a great way to add a touch of sophistication to your building. Also available in sofa and loveseat styles, so you can tailor the look to your space.
Need more from your lounge chair than just looks? OFM’s Lounge Seating with Tablet Arm uniquely combines plush lounge seating with a tablet arm – meaning no more scrambling for a book or binder to use as a makeshift writing surface (we’ve all been there). Even better, the tablet arm swivels out of the way when not in use so you can just enjoy the comfortable chair. It’s soft and padded, but with enough form to provide support should you need to get some work done. It’s also available as a loveseat with two tablet arms.
