Aptly named, this unique piece promises to become your new favourite chair, a place to ruminate and rest, allowing inspiration (and relaxation) to arrive with serendipity. 

Following a scrupulous design process the vision for the Muse solidified over time, with the final style details eventually arrived at with relative ease. The key is the powder-coated tubular steel frame, which provides a solid foundation and sleek appeal, rounded out by the spherical nature of the cushioning.

However, matching form with function in terms of comfort proved a slight challenge. The perseverance paid off though, as this is a chair that both hugs and bolsters the human form with little fuss, making it as easy to get up as it is to sit down.

That base frame of steel holds the back, providing a floating illusion of lightness. The seat is then a separate piece, slotted into the outer structure, creating a minimalist look that alludes to mid-century modernism. This makes it at home among Art Deco-style pieces as well as alongside contemporary aesthetics.

The purposeful geometry of this chair ensures it looks good from all angles, giving many options for its placement. Whether this is an office perch, a welcoming entrance chair, or that seat that gets the afternoon sun in the bedroom, the Muse is sure to deliver.

Even better, the quality commercial grade foam, optional wool wrap layer, and steel construction means you can trust this seat to endure for generations. In terms of colour, we recommend keeping it plain with a natural texture to enable those curves to take centre stage.

We expect the Muse to be rated highly by New Zealand interior designers. After all, like an artist’s muse, chairs like this don’t come along every day.
