Chair Design Hot Seat of the Day – ‘Lady’ by Marco Zanuso

It has been a while, but I do have a beautiful piece for you to gaze upon today. ‘Lady’ was originally designed in 1951 for Italian furniture design company Arflex, but she seduced me with her peacock feather pattern from the Poliform website.

What I love about good design is that it never really dates. This could have been created in any decade since the 50’s but what I think gives it away as a ‘mid century modern‘ piece, is those telltale curves and angled legs. It is timeless, comforting, and potentially humble, depending on the finish you’d choose. That silky, almost iridescent green and blue peacock pattern is anything but humble, and would create an amazing statement chair in a mysterious room.

Be sure to have a look at more pictures and info on the spec sheet.
