As though straight out of another century, El Purista has commissioned a gentlemen's chair that is perfect for classic smoke rooms. With leather upholstery, dark wood accents and unique details meant to hold cigars and glasses of whisky, this is a gentlemen's chair that will rival Lazy Boys around the world.

Designed by Chilean architect Rodrigo Gonzalez together with German lawyer Alexander Sauer, the gentlemen's chair is nevertheless made for modern times. With its otherwise minimalist frame and clean lines, it would easily fit into contemporary living spaces. The hidden drawers in the arms, however, will make the sitter feel as though they are part of another era -- a fun imaginative touch to a practical design.
