Grant Wood designed this Lounge Chair and Ottoman in 1938 for his own living room. Henry R. Lubben, a Cedar Rapids furniture maker, manufactured the design in a variety of fabrics, with or without tasseled fringe, and sold it in department stores throughthe Midwest as the Grant Wood Lounge Chair.

In 1939, Riverdale Fabrics commissioned Wood to create a textile for them based on his 1932 painting Spring Plowing (textile design seen framed, top image). Wood died before this design went into production and the fabric was never made.

Pink Thing of the Day: Pink Gramophone Lounge Chair

This beautiful, modern flower-shaped lounge chair, Gramophone, is designed by Velichko Velikov, a broad and expressive design in subtle pinks and peaches. Understated with its soft colors, yet glamorous in its nature-inspired style.

Whereas most chairs follow the basic rule of three separate components – seat, backrest and armrests, Gramophone is an all in one piece. Connected to a sturdy chrome spiral base, all three interconnect in a circular, flower petal effect, or, as its name suggests, the speaker of a vintage gramophone.
