Versatile & Comfy: 5 Alternative Seating Styles

From on January 28, 2010 in Home Additions

I like a living space that is versatile, comfortable and amenable to conversation. Here’s a collection of landing places for your most convivial guests.

alternative seating bi pod#1 - Bi-Pod seats by Roche Bobois are clever, colorful, interconnecting blocks that can be tossed anywhere they’re needed. A great alternative to the standard “conversation area” with permanently placed coffee table and two chairs.

alternative seating pebbles#2 - It doesn’t get more organic-looking than these plush stones and pebbles in various sizes. From Viva Terra, they’re draped in Merino wool and are hand-washable.

alternative seating recycled paper#3 - Flexible Love by Skart contracts or expands to seat up to 16 guests. Made from recyclable paper and wood, you can change the length just by pulling the ends accordion-style!

alternative seating egg stools#4 - These hand-carved solid ebony Egg Stools from Bahay are an artful perch for those who love the look and feel of wood.

alternative seating reversable tables#5 - These natural-look Reversible Side Tables from West Elm are sold as a set of two. Nest them together for one larger table or pull them apart to multi-task.
