In many ways, BRC Designs’ Korobeiniki Chair perfectly represents the spirit of our continuing “It’s modern, but is it comfy?” series. In fact, unless someone had told us this was a chair, we’re not sure we would have been able to tell this was for sitting.

We may love modern furniture, but we definitely treasure comfort. That’s why we enlisted the help of 2Modern friend and furniture maker Michael Yates. His background and expertise made him the perfect guy to rate chairs based on firmness, quality, comfort and ergonomics. This isn’t exactly science, but we’ll be bringing you a series of posts to tackle the very important question of looks versus comfort!

Korobeiniki Chair by BRC Designs. In Michael’s words: “Awful to sit on. Probably not meant for comfort, though.”

Our ratings system, which we admit is based a lot on personal preference, gave the the Korobeiniki Chair 5 stars for firmness (meaning it’s hard as a boulder), 1 star for touch (you won’t be running your hands across this thing for pleasure), 3 stars for construction (it felt sufficiently sturdy and looks like it was made pretty well) and 1 star for ergonomics (you read what Michael had to say). Read more about it here.

You’ll have to stay tuned to the blog to see what other new designs he rates for comfort; which chair will be the most comfortable?! What do you think about the Korobeiniki Chair by BRC Designs? Does it look as comfy as it does attractive? Do you think you would enjoy sitting in it? Let us know!
