Came across the sweet and lovingly made furniture pieces by the USA based Serena & Lily and was especially drawned to their beautifully crafted low seats – made to order, they look like they could have been some royal family’s beloved possesion in the past. Two of my personal favorites are:
Moroccan Leather Pouf works double duty as a footstool or extra seating. Handmade by artisans in Morocco, each one is unique, with subtle variations in color, where individual pieces of leather are dyed to perfection, then stitched together and embroidered by hand.
Chakki is a cross between an ottoman and a stool inspired by traditional Indian mills used to grind wheat and other grains. The base, which is made in India, is solid mango-wood finished with low-VOC stain in dark walnut or painted white. The plush cotton cushion can be slipcovered in any of the 12 upholstery fabrics offered.
Polish design studio Beza Project comes with yet another cloud design. I’ve a feeling the presentation of their design is better than the actual design….
Found Michetta – funky upholstered seating modules designed by Gaetano Pesce for Mer Italia at Design Conscious.

Fleck Chair 1990
Fleck Chair’s website is a K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Stupid) website. I love it!
About Fleck Chair:
Fleck Chair began as a simple, one-man upholstery shop known as Fleck Custom Upholstery in the early 1960’s. As time went on and our reputation grew, we began a small line of studio sofas and chairs. Some local manufacturers looked to Fleck Custom Upholstering as a source of seating components. As business grew, employees were added, the number of different products produced increased, and Fleck Custom Upholstering became Fleck Upholstering. Fleck Upholstering moved to its present location in 1975 with a 50 x 100 foot building. At first it seemed very large. By 1978 the large building had shrunk and another 50 x 100 section was added on.
Again as the business grew, sales territory was added, employees were added, and our line of upholstered products increased. Fleck Upholstering became Fleck Chair and business continued to grow.
Cramping again lead to another 80 x 53 sq ft extension in 1986.
Today, we market our products in 19 states under the name of Fleck Chair. Our products are also marketed under various other names and are shipped throughout the United States and to many locations around the world.
