Designed in 2015 by Magnus Long exclusively for The Conran Shop, the award-winning Cross Leg Lounge Chair & Ottoman is upholstered in nude Old Velvet Leather with black legs.
Awarded Design Guild Mark's inaugural ‘Jonathan Hindle Award for Design Excellence’ in 2015 – recognising excellence and innovation in British furniture design – the idea for the Cross Leg collection came about from wrapping Post-it notes around and into cones to create a supple but stable shell for the seat.
The form of the cone developed into a bean-like shape and expresses a warm and inviting place to sit. The addition of multi-density foams enhances the fluid form and supreme ergonomics of the Cross Leg Lounge Chair and Ottoman. A high-strength tubular steel frame supports the shell, while the legs cross over, giving the set both its name and unique detail.
Crafted in Italy, the shells of both elements are exquisitely upholstered in supple, superior-grade European Old Velvet Leather, produced in Italy from the best tanneries and dyed-through for rich colour with water-based finishing that contains no harmful substances to humans or the environment, ensuring a beautiful finish.
