Gold Winner – Lexington Accent Chair | M + Arquette

The Lexington accent chair is a product that embodies luxury at an elite status. As a designer, I was inspired by the concept of luxury yachts and their shapes and forms as they glide and settle in their environment which made me blend high-quality wooden veneers with alloy linear detailing embedded along with cast alloy composites to provide a more technical aspect using smart materials.

The material selection was driven by a desire to create a technically advanced product with a luxurious feel. The upholstery is a luxury mulsan leather full grain that is not only visually enticing but also incredibly comfortable to the touch. Combining the wooden veneers with the cast alloy composites and alloy linear detailing create a stunning appeal and add sophistication to the chair’s design.

The chair’s seat is divided uniquely as the leather upholstery seating area meets the round base elements. This adds a distinctive character, and creates a design that’s different from your average accent chairs. It’s a unique design element that makes the Lexington accent chair stand out from the crowd.

In addition to its luxurious feel and sophisticated design, the Lexington accent chair is an exquisite solution to accentuate any environment. Its structure and design are carefully considered to invoke a sense of class and elegance. Every detail is thought through to create a chair that’s not only beautiful but also functional and comfortable.

In conclusion, the Lexington accent chair is the result of a thoughtful design process that combines technical material selection with sophisticated design elements to create a product that embodies luxury and elegance. It’s the perfect addition to any space looking to add a touch of opulence and refinement.
