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.
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!
