I SPY - A short CHAISE..... Or Is It A Chair For Tommy ???

The picture below is from a previous post about
'Round Hill' 
an outrageously beautiful resort in Jamaica.
Ralph Lauren helped with the re-do a few years ago......
look at these chairs, 
I think they are short chaise lounges.No?
How clever is that???
The chairs are too deep for most. 
Except for maybe Tommy Tune.

I mean, you really don't need you feet supported if your legs are.
Your feet can hang off the edge of the chair and it would still be super comfy.
Your legs are still elevated. 
Just think of all the space you gain in the room 
when your chaise is 6" or 9" shorter.
Hey....ya' think it is just me that sees these chairs as baby lounge chairs?
I do have little legs...I am only 5'2".

Do you think there would be a market 
for a chair/chaise like this one?
Would you want one?
If you had limited space and wanted a chaise....
would it bother you to have you feet hanging off the edge?

XXX's me

  1. i am a fan of deep seats for squishy comfort.. i have a loveseat coming that is super deep and will be so cozy... bring it on!! xx

  2. I would love that in the family room or media room. How comfy would that be? I don't think my feet would dangle b/c they would be curled up!

  3. Yes, the furniture designers
    seem to make big fat ugly, clumpy
    oversized pressed wood base that last's a few years. Why not Amer. Companys all make products to break down in 5 years. That's because they love Americans so much they never what them to get ahead. Gone are the days of
    Conscientiousness and pride.
    A mad consumer



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
