Jessica Charles launches new mid-century seating collection
American furniture designer and manufacturer Jessica Charles has launched a new seating collection, which is inspired from the Modernism period.
Designed in collaboration with furniture designer Linda Lane, the new collection includes the modern stylish furniture pieces like Jenna, Estate, Lulu, Ricki, Rocco and Astro, which display the retro side of mid-century style via whimsical prints, unique textures, and clean yet bold silhouettes.
Upholstered with neutral shades of mauve and mustard, the Jenna chair set a distinctly retro tone. Its vertical stripes offset the wide-set silhouette and work with the directional flow of the wood legs and back supports. Measuring 30.25” H x 29” W x 27” D, the Jenna is modeled after a vintage chair from 1955.
Designed by giving prime importance to functionality, the Estate stationary chair features triangular legs. Made with lesser material, it features high, contoured back, which offers style and ergonomic support to the user. Its contemporary heather-grey fabric showcases the elegant silhouette beautifully. The Estate stationary chair measures 38.25” H x 32.5” W x 34.5” D.
Pitting glossy red against espresso brown, the Lulu has been designed as a classic slipper chair. It feature saber legs, which complement the chair’s free-flowing curves, while boxed stitching with buttons offer a modern edge in place of traditional tufting. The Lulu slipper chair measures 34.5” H x 24” W x 32.75” D.
Reflecting the mid-century whimsy wholeheartedly, the Ricki seating furniture is upholstered with a futuristic, circular print. Featuring a reclined back and slouched arms, it provides comfort to the user. Its tapered wood legs lend sharpness and edge. The Ricki measures 38.5” H x 29.5” W x 35.75” D.
Merging style with comfort, the Rocco bar stool features organic, wave-shaped seat curves. Its telescopic legs balance the look via stark aesthetic contrast. Finished with button detailing, the Rocco bar stool measures 45” H x 22.75” W x 19” D.
Created with minimum design elements, the Astro ottoman features radius corners and splayed metal legs. Refining the look for contemporary tastes, the Astro is upholstered with textural grey fabric and a row of button tufting. The Astro ottoman measures 16.75” H x 44.5” W x 20.25” D.
