An Outdoorsy Chair you Should Have Inside: The Hoop Chair

Garden chairs indoors?  Yes!  Lightweight, garden friendly and stylish – the hoop chair adds a chic, outdoorsy feeling to any room.  I love seeing this 1960’s style chair outside, but I like it best indoors.  There are many variations of this chair derived from Hans Wegner’s 1965 “Hoop Chair” (which is a stunner of a chair).  I love all the variations out there of this chair – they are useful sculpture that bring style to any room.

Yellow!  A lot of my clients love yellow but don’t want it everywhere (like on their walls) – this little chair could satisfy that yellow craving.  (Source)

I love the unexpected Wegner style hoop chairs in this office – they give it an outdoorsy, Scandinavian vibe (and the cheerful dog doesn’t hurt either). (Source)

This hoop chair looks like the functional sculpture it is in this subtle and sophisticated closet and helps to soften the minimal look.  My closet would never look like this even with that chair.  (Source)

Here are some retail hoop chairs that I like.  Once you start looking for them, you’ll be surprised by how many are available right now from different retailers!
