From High Headboard Couches to Hooded Office Chairs

By: Vivian Lau - Published: Jun 11, 2012
With limited space in the office and in public areas these days, sometimes it is difficult to find a quiet place to talk, which is why furniture designers have been back at the drawing board to create solitude-sanctioning seats.

Couches, chairs and loveseats are now being configured with high-backs or rounded-enclosing frames so that sitters may enjoy a more private time by themselves or with the people sitting across from them. This increasing need for privacy probably stems from the wealth of personal information and total exposure on social networks. Enabling high-strung workers to sit back in a moment of solidarity is welcome in the bustling society of today.

Not only serving as an escape, these unconventional furnishings appeal to those with eccentric tendencies. Stats for 21 Solitude-Sanctioning Seats Trending: Older & Warm
