If you are looking for a simple seat to add to your home that will not detract from your existing decor, I suggest you turn your attention to the Stem chair. Although it sports a rather minimalist design, it nevertheless has an interesting backrest detail that makes the entire piece eye-catching.

Designed by Patrick Norguet for the Italian company Crassevig, the Stem chair looks like a vein-riddled leaf that has been plucked and curved to serve as an elegant and organic support for one's back. Lightweight yet sturdy, the Stem chair could also be likened to a half-formed basket.

Made out of polyurethane, the Stem chair is modern with a touch of whimsy. You could even add a cushion for comfort and a pop of color. Stats for Leaflike Backrests Trending: Older & Chilly
