Norway-based Varier Furniture's "intelligent sitting" philosophy is simple and alluring: "If humans can move in a natural way, even when sitting, the body will feel better and possibly also last longer." The company combines Form & Function with Movement & Variation, resulting in beautiful chairs that allow the freedom to sit in a variety of positions and still remain comfortable.
The great thing about attending an exhausting furniture trade show like the ICFF is that you occasionally get to rest your dogs by lounging in pieces like these. As you can guess, once I hit Varier's area, I didn't want to get back up.
