Sitting Pretty


Synthetic, polyester recliners may work well for cheap motels, but your home deserves eco, fashionable furnishings. Designer Aristeu Pires kept sustainability in mind when designing his chic yet comfortable chairs out of sustainably harvested Brazilian hardwood and natural cotton rope, which creates a cushy and well-ventilated back and seat, while water-based, earth-friendly finishes give the furniture a sleek, smooth style. The Gisele Chair has an added advantage for avid readers: Pires designed the arms of the lounge while holding a newspaper and measuring where his elbows hit, making the Gisele the perfect height for your reading pleasure. Curling up with a good book has never been so comfortable. –Sarah Parsons
