January 16th, 2013StyleSolosso 0 Comments

With 2013 now firmly upon us, many people will be feeling creative and want to rejuvenate their home over the next twelve months. There are many ways that you can do this, of course, such as a lick of paint or new wallpaper but if you really want to make your mark and give your home a whole new feel, then you’re going to need a piece of statement designer furniture.

Fortunately, however, you’re in good company when it comes to statement pieces of designer furniture and some iconic names in the world of furniture design such as Charles Eames, Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen have crafted some truly stunning and timeless pieces of furniture over the last century that will completely revamp the look and style of your home in 2013.

So, let’s not delay any longer, let’s take a look at three of the best pieces of statement designer furniture to refresh your interior design in 2013:

The Eero Aarnio Ball Chair was once described by the New York Times as “the most comfortable chair” so you know that you’re in for a treat if you opt for this stunning designer chair as your piece of statement furniture for 2013.

Aarnio decided to design the chair using the most simplistic geometric element – namely, the ball. He then crafted a piece of designer furniture which has gone on to become one of the most iconic and popular of the last 50 years.

The Eero Aarnio ball chair was first designed in 1966 which just goes to show what a forward thinking the Finnish designer was because it boasts the sort of timeless appeal which makes it such a popular choice of furniture amongst today’s generation of interior designers.

It really is the ultimate in statement furniture and it is little wonder that Aarnio established himself as one of the biggest names in furniture design when you consider he was responsible for one of the most famous, and comfortable, pieces of furniture of his generation.

If you’re after more of a Mad Men flavour for your property in 2013, then you should definitely consider pieces like the stunning Charles Eames Lounger and Ottoman above. Eames (along with his wife, Ray) was one of America’s most influential furniture designers and the lounger above was one of the cornerstones of his design collections.

There is a highly distinctive and luxurious feel to the Eames Lounger and Ottoman and it is certainly something that you can picture Don Draper sitting on in the offices of Sterling Cooper. So, if you’re wanting to ramp up the retro style in your property in 2013, this stunning piece of designer furniture may be the perfect choice for the job.

Given the, perhaps, contemporary look and feel of the Charles Eames Lounger and Ottoman, it is often hard for people to believe that it was first designed in 1956 by Eames as a gift to his friend, the movie director Billy Wilder, for his 56th birthday. It went on to become one of Charles Eames’ most important and memorable designs and it is little surprise that it is proving popular with homeowners and interior designers over half a century since it was first released.

Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair

Arne Jacobsen was born in Copenhagen in 1902 and, during his illustrious design career, was credited with some of the most iconic pieces of furniture of the 20th Century. Chief amongst these pieces was definitely his eye-catching Egg Chair which has become firmly entrenched in many of the look-books of today’s interior designers when showing potential clients the sort of contemporary style they are capable of achieving in their homes.

There is no denying that you would be making a statement with the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair regardless of which room you choose to put it in but, as you can see, it looks fantastic as the focal point in a living room.

This spectacular piece of furniture is available in a multitude of colours to match your own interior design endeavours and there are few pieces of designer furniture which will make more of a statement in 2013.

These are just some of the pieces of statement furniture that can reinvigorate your interior design endeavours in 2013 as there really are so many iconic designers to choose from when it comes to decorating your home but, it is fair to say that Eames, Jacobsen and Aarnio were three of the best.
