A common misconception of chairs is “as long as they are comfortable, they are fine!”. However, some of the chairs designed by top designers could work as a place of comfort, as well as a piece of artwork that revives the interior of your house.

Danish and Scandinavian furniture designers usually have both of the components: simplicity and comfort. Scandinavian furniture usually emphasize on the silhouette of their designs, rather than their fanciness. They could fit in just about any spaces, modern or antique.

Vernon Panton is among my favorite Danish designers, most of his collection produced to a German furniture brand, Vitra.

One of his notable designs are the Panton Chair Series which includes the Panton Chair, Panton Classic, and Panton Junior. The Panton Chair Series was produced after Vernon Panton spent many years on how to make a plastic chair moulded in one piece. The result was the “S” shaped Panton Chair Series. The Panton Chair initiated the series, and comes in six colors: white, chartreuse, ice grey, classic red, tangerine, and basic dark.  Later came the Panton Classic, an upgraded version of the Panton Chair, and now in more sophisticated lacquered plastic. It comes in only 3 simple colors, white, black, and red. The last of the series is the Panton Junior, a smaller chair designed to seat little children. The Panton Junior Chair comes in more colors, including white, light pink, classic red, dark lime, light blue, and tangerine.
