I HEART the Stingray Rocking Chair

I saw this chair at the Schwoerer Haus showroom and fell in love.  Having spent a full 6 days of my life at this showroom, this chair was my go-to comfort seat when picking tiles (for 5 different bathrooms no less).

The Stingray Rocking Chair by designer Thomas Pederson for Fredericia is an update on a classic rocking chair. The design is supposed to evoke a stingray floating through the water.  It’s folded from one piece of vacuum-bolded plastic.  I can tell you that it’s super comfortable.

Newer options included moulded wood or even fully/partially upholstered.   I think I prefer the moulded plastic version.

what do you think of the fabric version? I think it detracts from the sculptural beauty of the piece.

The non-rocking chair version – No Bueno IMHO

 

Here is the designer talking about his design.

Of course, all this beauty comes at a price. It’s about $2000 in the USA and about £1500 in the UK through Scandium.  The upholstered version is about $4000 in the USA and about £4000 in the UK.  I guess they haven’t heard about adjusting for exchange rates which would make it “only” about £2800 in the UK.   I guess I better get saving!
