Ruffle-Topped Felt Chairs by Fredrik Farg

Swedish designer Fredrik Farg created Re:cover felt-covered chairs after being inspired by heavy wool clothing of the past. He says he was motivated by classic menswear; however, the drawstring seat cushion trim, basket weaving and ruffled edges have a distinctively feminine feel.

The felt Farg uses is a polyester material that creates the look of grey wool, but allows for structure and strength robust enough to act as stylish back rests.

These stylish seats are really quite classy; they would be the perfect addition to luxurious lobbies in office buildings or hotels, or even in your own household. Stats for Menswear-Inspired Furniture Trending: Older & Chilly
