Pheaby by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso

Artisanal meets industrial in this Patricia Urquiola–designed upholstered chair for Moroso.

Called Pheaby, its legs have feet more reminiscent of a carpenter’s trestle than a typical chair, supporting a softly rounded seat with no sharp edges.

Pheaby comes with a solid wooden base; choose a chair structure in ash or oak. The seat is lacquered in the five colors chosen for the Rows collection—Honey, Cinnamon, Forest Green, Taupe, and Coal Grey. The seat and back are upholstered with polyurethane foam in varied densities. Pheaby is flame retardant-free.

Pheaby is part of the Rows collection by Patricia Urquiola. Its geometrical and minimalist design expresses a refined artistic concept.

The Luva Modular Sofa by Gabriel Tan for Herman Miller

This organic, modular design from Portugal-based Singaporean designer Gabriel Tan is all about options.

Portuguese for “glove,” Luva was designed at Tan’s studio in Porto. Its shape was inspired by the soft grip and padded support of boxing gloves and the delicate rolled tops of Japanese futons or Shikibuton.

Luva can expand into an open back so you can lounge or it can be situated as a more supportive seat.

Luva is available in armchair, chaise, sofa, and sectional configurations. A hidden bar near the bottom of the seat allows you to combine or separate pieces easily.

Electric by Bendtsen Design Associates for Keilhauer

The red-hot Electric sofa is equally at home in the modern workplace and private offices.

Electric meets the demand for both beautiful furniture and, quite literally, a place to recharge, as it comes with an optional integrated power source.

Designer Niels Bendtsen said its form is meant to create a classic silhouette that’s also quite dynamic.

The piece is Keilhauer’s first freestanding sofa to offer a built-in power source option. You’ll find one standard outlet and two USB ports at the center of the sofa, discreetly installed underneath the seat.

Artes Round Rug from Sit-In with ECONYL

This rug is part of the Artes collection from Sit-In.

Winding, pop-influenced lines bring life to the fabric, as the Artes rugs collection expresses all the character of a modern home with people on the move.

The Artes collection is hypoallergenic, with innovative Virex treatment that reduces the viral load up to 99.9%.

ECONYL itself is made entirely from waste, is 100% recyclable, and offers up to a 90% reduction in global warming potential compared to standard nylon. Designers are increasingly turning to it to create incredible new designs—from carpet to chairs to handbags.
