Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

November 12, 2012

Good morning to you all,

 

This new series entitled “Know Your Furniture”,  is intended in part to remedy a particular injustice in the furniture world. We’ve all been there, standing around a kitchen or living room, cocktails in hand listening to a super-snobbish friend or neighbor describe in excruciating detail the profound nature and exquisite history of their newest furniture acquisition. The group around you listens politely, maybe they have some idea of what this self styled furniture guru is talking about but you wouldn’t be surprised if they were just as clueless as you and were simply employing the exact same strategy that has you looking fascinated, smiling and desperately trying to nod and sigh in the right places.

Very often coffee tables go unnoticed and generally taken for-granted. Much of the time they have a very basic design and are pretty unremarkable. But with the Discovery Coffee table, Zuo Modern has taken the ordinary, reworked it, and given us a coffee table that makes a statement, “I will not be overlooked!”.
