A well-designed armchair, or you might call it a lounge chair, can last a lifetime; passed down to your children so they too can sit in its comfortable folds and while away a moment or two. And there’s something very grown-up and classic about a leather lounge chair in particular, conjuring up images of gentleman’s studies, dark wood-panelled rooms and cocktail hour in a quiet corner. But it’s somewhat harder to find a modern take on a leather lounge chair for more contemporary tastes, without spending an arm and a leg (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun).
That’s where Camerich come in; their new designer furniture collection has been designed to offer quality pieces for modern lifestyles and comprises beautifully crafted contemporary shapes and a sleek, minimal aesthetic. I’ve fallen for their Leman chair, a simple modern leather chair in brushed chrome. Comprised of two square frames, held together by a padded seat and back, it’s sharp lines have a modernist vibe that brings to mind Eileen Gray designs and early Twentieth century classics.
Dark brown is the classic choice; less likely to date and can only get better with age. But with Camerich you’re spoilt for choice, with over 70 fabrics and 21 leathers to choose from – the minimalist Scandinavian in me is loving the dark grey version above.
And here’s how I would style Camerich’s Leman chair in a rich, grown-up monochrome scheme, with black and white prints, soft muted lighting and a bit of bold, graphic pattern, what do you think? Picture a dark, moody backdrop and rich textures to sit back and enjoy…
