Could you relax in a $45,000 lounger with a beer in one hand and bowl of Cheetos in the other? Me neither. But Oscar Neimeyer's Rio Chaise sure looks inviting. It's a lounger with a twist of retro aesthetic in a contemporary style. A bentwood and leather pillow with leather and weights help to keep the comfort level at maximum.

Implications - When it comes to furniture, it's mainly about two things: style and function. Designers need to invest their efforts in creating pieces that match the contemporary aesthetics of the day while making sure that the unmatched style is paired with comfortable functionality.
