Lily ArmchairWild, funky and fun, the Getsuen Armchair was designed by Japanese designer Masanori Umeda in 1990 for the Italian manufacturer Edra. This charming armchair design reflects the look of a flower, specifically a lily. Like many of Umeda’s other designs, the shape of the Lily Chair is inspired by nature.  It rests on the floor with two brushed steel balls on the two front petals and a pair of polyurethane wheels similar to those used on skateboards. These make this cool modern armchair easy to pivot and move around to any position you want.

Lily Chair Side View

The reason they call it the Lily Chair is most clear when the armchair is viewed from the side. The beautifully organic look of  spreading petals not only makes an inviting place to sit, it is an attention grabbing work of art that is sure to start many conversations.

The surprisingly comfortable Getsuen Armchair is made using molded steel and covered in thick polyurethane foam. It comes in a number of fabric colors or, if you pay a bit more, you can get the Gold Leather edition which I haven.t seen in person but I can only imagine how amazing it looks. You can find this and other armchairs at Atlanta-based Switch Modern.
