Having an excellent array of chairs in our home is crucial. And if you’re wondering why, well, you shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic and aesthetic as well. And, a unique and well-designed chair that would be an excellent addition to your home is the Pocket Chair.
Designed by Stone Designs for Swedish furniture brand Blå Station, this is the updated and upgraded version of the Pocket Chair. The cozy and cushy-looking Pocket Chair looks quite comfortable to sit on, but what instantly grabs my attention is the little storage nook in the underbelly of the chair. The little storage nook is an ingenious addition since a major issue that many people are dealing with is space constraints in their own homes. Our modern millennial homes have many virtues, but one thing they lack is space. Smart storage solutions like the Pocket Chair can be lifesavers in such tricky and compact situations.
The Pocket Chair features a cup-like shape with a unique storage space under the seat. The storage section is a nifty space to store your personal belongings such as blankets, books, magazines, laptops, etc. “We came up with the idea in a ski resort,” says Stone Designs co-founder Eva Prego. “People pile up their goggles, helmets, and backpacks during breakfast and lunch so that it doesn’t pick up dirt from the floor.”
The newer version of the Pocket Chair has a lower back and arm support, which allows it to serve as a more comfortable corner with a cozy embrace. It is available in upholstered fabric or leather, and you can add contrasting colors on the inside and the outside. The Pocket Chair is perfect for other places besides your home as well – such as restaurants, bars, hotel lobbies, waiting rooms, and offices as it eliminates the need for tables, and creates a tidy and organized space.
