Puffy Lounge Chair by Faye Toogood for Hem

Puffy Lounge Chair by Faye Toogood for Hem

Dezeen Showroom: chubby upholstery spills over the modernist steel frame of this lounge chair created for Hem by British designer Faye Toogood as a study in contrasts.

The detachable upholstery of the Puffy Lounge Chair is shaped like a T, with the longer section casually draped over the back, while the two smaller parts dangle freely over the armrests.

It is finished either in neutral-toned leather or thick canvas, which is stitched like a quilt.

The rigid frame underneath serves as a skeleton and is powder-coated to contrast with the upholstery. Light shades are used for the legs where the upholstery is dark and vice versa.

"The idea behind the Puffy Seating Collection is to emphasise the two almost contradictory ideas at play in the furniture," Toogood explained.

"First, stability and strength, highlighted by leaving the stainless-steel framework on display. And second, comfort and reassurance, in the form of the puffy upholstery. The resulting pieces have a dependable durability coupled with all the enveloping warmth of a familiar duvet."
