Chair manufacturing brand Emeco presented the new Sezz Collection of seating at Maison & Objet in Paris this January. Designed in collaboration with French designer Christophe Pillet, the chair collection is made of aluminum chairs, stools and swivel chairs and were originally created for the Sezz Hotel in St.Tropez – hence the name. Launched as a five piece collection that display a timeless design, Sezz features two kinds of recycled aluminum shells – with or without upholstery pads. Manufactured at the Emeco factory in Pennsylvania, the chairs and stools tell the story of the Emeco brand, “an interpretation of the Emeco way“, as Pillet describes them. The Sezz Collection by Christophe Pillet for Emeco is described by its designer as follows: “The look is very subtle, but holds an unbelievable quality; you don’t see the welding, the recycled aluminum, the indestructibleness, they are all real but invisible values, the hidden territory of a luxury product.”
The Componibili Storage Unit was designed in 1968 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. A design classic, it is on show at New York’s MoMA and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Functional, adaptable and smart, this hard-wearing and versatile unit has many uses around the home. Componibili units are stackable, available in round and square versions, varied sizes and several colors.
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels. Like some of the others on this list, this armoire from Enchanted Home does away with the glass and replaces it with netting instead.
