Price Points: Quilted seating

Selection of quilted seating options | H is for Home

Quilted homewares are nothing new. There have a long history of (mainly) women – around the world – getting together to sew, share and support each other as they create magnificent works of art.

Recently, we’ve been noticing a big resurgence in quilted soft furnishings; this time, it’s no longer confined to blankets, bedspreads and throws. Quilted seating is offering up a twist on the classics with all new patterns, colours and materials.

Quilted chairs and sofas are so tactile and inviting – sitting or reclining on one is like getting a big warm hug!

'Sit on it!" Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Sit on it! Remember that catchphrase? No, this isn’t an Etsy List curated by the Fonz! It’s our selection of the best chairs to be found on Etsy.

Designing a chair is one of those rites of passage for many young product designers. Some designs are all about comfort, providing support and physical well-being. In the case of others, the designer is more interested in a chair’s form; whether it’s fundamental beauty, artistic message or even humour.

Very few chairs can claim to deliver on both counts. There are a few icons out there that come to mind though; Arne Jacobsen’s Egg chair, Eames’ 670 lounge chair, Mies van de Rohe’s Barcelona and Charlotte Perriand’s Grand Comfort.
