The question “what are three of your favorite chairs and their respective designers” was asked on the LinkedIn Interior Design group forum recently and while most respondents listed the usual suspects, it made us think of a few more contemporary examples of great chairs. We’ve included them below:

Christopher Guy Patented Chris-Cross Design

Any of the signature Chris-X (pronounced kris-krôs) chairs by Christoper Guy. Guy is well known for fusing classicism with modernism in his designs. If you’re not familiar with this British luxury furniture designer’s work you’re missing some of the sexiest designs around.

Norman Cherner Molded Plywood Armchair

The Plywood Chair Collection by The Cherner Chair Company. A mid-century icon and perennial favorite.

Being from the Motor City, our list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the “seat belt chair” aka the Greenbelt chair from Peter Danko. The basket woven seatbelt chair backs and seats last many years and the belt fibres moiré effects are visually stunning. The belting is not only comfortable and a recycled material, it is an alternative for the environmentally problematic urethane foam seat suspension.Peter Danko Greenbelt Side Chair
