The Cini Boeri Lounge Collection from Knoll is one of my favorite collection of modern lounge furniture ever to grace the pages of this blog. There is something about the character and European style, combined with it amazing comfort that really makes me smile. Each piece of this modern furniture collection has the personality to stand on its own and make a statement but when used together, they work together in a harmony not always found in all modern lounge collections.
To begin with, lets take the Cini Boeri Lounge Chair, the low slung yet hugely wide proportions of this chair make it perfect in the large, open spaces you find in modern architecture. I don’t know of any other chair where the word “lounge” is more appropriate. The Chair is a little over 54″ long and with arms that angle on the inside it seems like I can’t sit in this thing without kicking my leg over one arm and reclining on the other. The chair is over 43″ deep, almost the width of many other lounge chairs of this style, the chair itself is only about 30″ high at its highest. That gives you a pretty good idea of the proportions I am talking about.
Some might think that a 43″ deep seat sounds impractical but the chair is designed with multiple sitting zones which means there is firm support in the front for when you are working or doing something else that requires you to sit on the edge of your seat. But towards the rear of the chair you gradually move into a softer and more comfortable zone that is perfect for some real power lounging.
The Cini Boeri Lounge Sofa has the same large yet low proportions only it measures a full 84″ in length. It has the same comfortably angles arms and multi-density graduated cushions. Both the Lounge Chair and Sofa sit on a slim profile, tubular tubing base and your choice of either four standard legs or two legs up front and two large swivel casters in the rear. The oversized casters are lockable to stay put but really make moving these large furniture pieces a snap. This feature is great if you are working with a large loft space or open floor plan where you like to mix up your living space on a regular basis.
Probably my favorite piece in the collection is the Cini Boeri Pouf Ottoman. This 33″ square ottoman has rounded edges that reminds me of a used bar of soap. It is the perfect complement to the Lounge Chair and Sofa and can be used with either. In fact, the ottoman is not available with legs, the only option is four swivel casters that are non-locking. I think this is intended to encourage mobility and keep this piece as portable as possible. You can used it as a place to put your laptop, use it as a footstool or just sit cross-legged in the center and have a friend spin you around.
The entire Cini Boeri Lounge Collection is a very comfortable and resilient choice for a modern living space and a practical and attractive option in a contemporary office or work space. It has a clean and streamlined Italian modern aesthetic yet it still maintains a classic style that wont fall out of fashion.
You can choose from any of the seemingly endless variety of colors, textiles and leathers to target a style that best suits your needs. It can run anywhere from playful and casual to elegant and professional. you can check out the Cini Boeri Lounge Collection at YLiving, the home of modern living.
