Dezeen Showroom: Japanese designer Keiji Takeuchi has created the "unconventional and cosy" Ripamonti lounge chair for Italian furniture maker De Padova.

Ripamonti is available with either fabric or leather upholstery, which is stretched over polyurethane foam to give the chair its plump shape.

"Unconventional and cosy, the new chair by designer Takeuchi features rounded lines accented by double stitching that runs along the back," said De Padova.

"I really appreciate sofas and armchairs of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, when they were just voluminous and very warm and visually inviting," added Takeuchi. "Before you even sit on them, you know they're going to be forgiving and comfortable."

Ripamonti is available in either a swivel or fixed version, to accommodate a range of different settings.
