the coconut chair
We came across an iconic piece of designer furniture that we just couldn’t ignore.
As longtime fans of authentic original furniture design, we’ve recently been on the hunt for a new statement piece for our office and have stumbled across the iconic Coconut chair, designed in 1955 by renowned American furniture designer George Nelson. The Coconut chair’s striking shape and inviting curves have been instrumental in elevating this classic chair to an artifact of modern design. Typically, an original example of this chair would fetch $10,690, but we tracked down an original example available locally at a mere fraction of the cost at only $3,900 at Design Online.
Design Online has set out to make authentic design more accessible at affordable prices. The online store boasts discounts on designer furniture, stocking iconic designer furniture brands like B&B Italia, Cassina, Vitra, Herman Miller and Moroso. It’s a great place to snap up pieces for prices that are more likely to make you grin with glee than grimace with discomfort and what’s more, every single piece is 100% authentic.
