A Modern Chair with A Peel!
There are a lot of cool modern chairs out there, modern chairs of all shapes sizes and colors. But only a few are so inspiringly awesome that they leave my mouth hanging open with just a little hint of drool in desire. I have to say that the Peel designed by Norwegian furniture designer Olav Eldøy for Variér Furniture is one of those amazing chairs that throw me right into modern chair Nirvana.
Called simply Peel, I am sure it was named because of its abstract resemblance to the peel of an orange removed in a single spiraling piece. It has a simple, yet elegantly organic design that feels incredibly natural and comfortable to lounge in if you get the chance. But watch out…you may not want to get up again.
The double-spring swivel mechanism easily shifts into any of three distinct positions with just a shift in your body weight and the matching footrest allows for maximum relaxation. This modern recliner doesn’t just adjust the back, the entire chair pivots into perfect lounging position. The headrest can be adjusted both up and down and side to side to provide support almost any body type.
I first ran into the Peel Chair at a luxury day spa where I found it almost irresistible and I found that it was very comfortable no matter what position I sat in. Even though it was in a commercial setting, I think that it would be outstanding for residential use. The Peel Chair also has a smaller companion chair called the Peel Club that has the same spiral shape but without the headrest and footrest. However, the Peel Club is no less comfortable and relaxing to sit in.
The Peel Club has a more compact design and rotates 360 degrees but it does not recline like the Peel Chair but its smaller size and modern style looks great in a contemporary home. Both styles come in both fabric and leather upholstery options in several colors but most places carry black and white with the bright and vivid colors requiring a special order.
