Modern Gliders

Foreword: I am not pregnant.

Mr. Sabbe has been dreaming of a chair since the day we were married. His dad has a chair, his granddad has a chair, Sabbe men need their chair. Unfortunately my Mr. Sabbe married an Interior Designer who is not going to let just any old comfortable chair reside in her living room. I do not feel like I am being particularly cruel with this rule. One day he will have a man room where he can have four black leather chairs, complete with cup holders and built in coolers, placed on tiered, stadium-like risers, if he so chooses. But today, in our 700 s.f. apartment, where I can see from one end to the other with a turn of the head, is not the day.
So, I told him last month, because he has been an extra hard worker, he could get a man chair. My only request was that it be somewhat modern and include a glider/rocker function.

Conclusion: I do like to plan ahead.
Lucky for both of us, I found Monte Design.


Are those not the best looking gliders ever? And if he has any reservations from photos 1-5, once I show him that 6 fully reclines, I'm pretty sure I'll have a deal on my hands.
If you live in Boston, I'm pretty sure you can test drive one over at Tadpole.

Hehe this really made me laugh! I reckon he'll agree to getting one of these - men generally focus on practical aspects, and this chair is most certainly practical. They look comfortable enough to sleep in.

I love your choices...way to think ahead! They do look comfortable which is very important!

hahaha, I totally get your rule. I have the same rules in my house- sorry but pretty and good design totally trump comfort and a "man chair" anyday!

Great choices though, I hope Mr. Sabbe likes one of them :)

I almost did that first one with a client and she decided not too (for money reasons not looks). I love your options!
