Mitz Takahashi, a furniture designer who's originally from Osaka, Japan, created a sling chair dubbed the 'Kumo,' which is said to translate from Japanese to mean "clouds."

The name comes from the supreme level of comfort that the sling chair offers -- with a shape that's lack of structure allows its user to sit back with ease. The thick cushion that almost looks to levitate from the ground is supported by a minimalist steel frame that's coated in a matte black powder.

By creating a contrast between the sharp-looking frame and the thick comfortable cushion, Mitz Takahashi's work carries a modern and very aesthetically pleasing appearance. This makes it the perfect complementary piece for consumers seeking to maintain this look in their homes, as well as those simply in search of chair that provides an incredibly relaxing experience.
