Welcome fall with some rest and relaxation. These lounge chairs are the perfect complement to an evening by the fire, a morning cup of coffee, or a Sunday afternoon of watching football. 

Simple lounge chair with removable upholstery

The Pick Up Sticks Lounge Chair is a balanced piece of furniture that can be used in a living room or den, or can be used as an occasional chair in a home office or bedroom. Designed by Simon James for Resident, the Pick Up Sticks was produced out of a need for a comfortable armchair with its upholstered component produced separately from the frame. This enables efficient production, and makes the chair easier to clean and transport.

First designed in 1955 by Mogens Lassen for the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Competition, the Saxe Lounge Chair is a timeless chair that blends the convenience of a folding chair and the comfort of a lounge chair. The 1955 model of the chair was made by A.J. Iversen—a master joiner in midcentury Denmark.
