Elegantly Connected: EMMA and EMILY Padded Chair Designs by Färg & Blanche 1

Swedish-French design duo Färg & Blanche has come up with two elegant padded chair designs for Swedish furniture brand Gärsnäs. EMMA (depicted in the first two photos below) is a hand-sewn, well-tailored armchair that “speaks the language of craftsmanship picking up the gauntlet. The needlework here involves both form and function, elevating the classic look to a superior level. Both the seams and the stockinged legs accentuate that well-dressed feeling”. The inspiration for the project was provided by an old traditional chair found by the designer in her grandmother’s Swedish house.

EMILY (presented in the last five photos of the post) was described by the designer as EMMA’s little sister: “just like siblings, they are similar but still different. The family likeness can be seen in the needlework: they are both upholstered, but differently patterned. The needlework is a function which also creates a powerful idiom”. The special technique employed is based on a classical craft, while at the same time occupying the leading edge of technology. EMILY is a comfortable chair, equally successful round the dining table and at a conference table.
