Sixagon by Misewell

We first featured Wisconsin designers and brothers Paul and Vincent Georgeson in our December/January 2011 Young Guns round up. They've launched a handful of new products since then, but one of their oldies but goodies, the Sixagon, caught our eye when we saw their booth at ICFF this year. The powder coated piece comes in three colors—red, black, and white—and retails for $350. Here's what Paul has to say about it.

modern gray beanbag armchair with blue Cordonnet stitching

Frolla Armchair by Skitsch

Beanbag chairs are mainstays in most family rooms, dens, and children's rooms and it's no wonder since they're casual, comfortable, and easy to move. Italian design company Skitsch just launched its Frolla armchair, an updated version of the beanbag chair that channels the informal vibe of the original but gives it a more supportive structure and sophisticated form. Designed by Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini, Frolla is the perfect perch in which to curl up with a good book, plop down in front of the tube, or spend a lazy summer afternoon. The removable cover features cordonnet stitching in an electric blue yarn and the base fabric comes in a beige or grey cotton. Retail price is €590. Visit skitsch.it for more information.

Half13 Modern Outdoor Furniture

Designer and builder Damian Velasquez of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is exhibiting his all-metal outdoor furniture line, Half13, at booth #1011 on the Dwell on Design show floor. The vibrantly colored powder coated stainless-steel chairs were remarkably comfortable, thanks to the thoughtful angles and proportions of the seat and back. We tested the chairs out and didn't even miss having a cushion; however, there was a slender square of foam on hand for those who needed to compare the difference ("I'm a welder, not a seamster," Velasquez said about the rudimentary "cushion").
