— Includes Striking Re-Interpretations of Classic Mid 20th Century Designs —


The noted interiors and furnishings designer Marie Burgos —— is introducing to her Marie Burgos Collection two distinctive new seating options with corresponding ottomans at this year’s ICFF, Booth #2271.

The Cayenne Lounge Chair and Ottoman are a deft homage to mid 20th century design. Ms. Burgos has taken the clean lines that defined seating designs of that era and given them a luxurious new simplicity. The plush upholstery — available in a full range of fabrics in multiple colorations and textures — plays out stunningly against the curved lines of the wooden arms and legs in a gleaming lacquer finish.

The Milo Arm Chair and The Milo Bean are a colorful, curvy duo designed by Marie Burgos to be used together with The Milo Bean serving as a comfortable ottoman. Or The Milo Bean can be carried anywhere……the ultimate in portable seating. Both are available in a wide range of plush fabrics. The Milo Arm Chair features twin bent wood bases and legs in luxurious lacquer and varnished finishes, while The Milo Bean has leather accent handles for easy carrying.

Also new to the Marie Burgos collection is Milo Bench, complimenting the Milo Bean.

The design includes the same easy-to-grab leather handles for easy mobility. The Milo

Bench can be used in an entrance hall, as a footstool, and as a colorful 48” 2-seater in a playroom. The Milo bench is available in a variety of sumptuous velvet fabrics or COM.



Ms. Burgos is also showing lighting designs, one of which appears in the March/April issue of Traditional Home magazine, and a unique collection of lounge pillows, While the Marie Burgos Collection incorporates global design influences, Ms. Burgos is just as often inspired by traditional designs from her native Caribbean island Martinique.

Le Tray Table is an outstanding example. It was inspired by a traditional carrying vessel found on the island until Ms. Burgos gave it a fresh new contemporary interpretation.

Chairs Designs inspired by Flowers...

Don't some chairs totally reminds you of flowers? Very talented designers all over the world have designed chairs  which are not only functional but also beautiful and comfortable.

As Spring is in the air,...I thought I would share with you some beautiful images of what nature has inspired...

This very elegant traditional Pink Bergere which really looks like a pretty pink tulip  would be a great addition to a feminine boudoir for all of you elegant Ladies...

Orange Coco Chair

The famous Coco chair designed by Alphaville Design! This retro modern lounge chair is made in the style of the George Nelson Coconut Chair design introduced in 1955. Doesn't she looks like a beautiful orange tulip?

MOORE, an armchair with a swivel seat, is a sculpture with a living and enveloping form that immediately makes it an icon. An ample goblet-shaped seat is pivoted and turns on a base plate thanks to a sophisticated hidden mechanism, both in lacquered nylon in various colour variants ranging from bronze, to lead to white. Due to the special properties of this lacquer, it can be used both indoors and outdoors. Doesn't it reminds you of a gorgeous Calla Lily? It would certainly look amazing on your terrace next to a bed of calla lily flowers...

The Clover’s white design chair is so inviting, you feel lucky just seating into it! The organic curves give it loads of sensual character. The small white arm chair is designed by Ron Arad is perfect for indoor as well as outdoor use.  I simply love the name.

At age 82, Pierre Paulin may have been one of the oldest designer still creating beautiful things. More than 50 years after producing his first work, he made the Flower Chair, above, from injection-molded translucent polycarbonate for Magis. Just the name talk for itself... Truly gracious!

The Bloom Lounge Chair is made of microfiber stitched over a resin top with a steel base. Inspired by the graceful blossom of a flower, this lounge chair is sculpted by hundreds of fine running stitches radiating from the center of the seat creating a subtle textural feel. Invisible supports form shapes reminiscent of soft and graceful musical tones. It really reminds me of an Hibiscus flower from the beautiful island of Martinique, my family's island...

Ito describes his design style as "simplexity," meaning a mix of simple shapes that are nevertheless very complex to design. His 2002 Petal chair for Italian furniture-design agency Cappellini looks like it could have been cooked up in a second, but it took months of careful honing to perfect its sensuous fiberglass shell, which encases a foam-padded seat upholstered in leather. Petals come in several colors, so they can be grouped together to form a flower. So spring like!

Hope you have enjoyed my selection of beautiful flower chairs. Which one is your favorite?
