NaughtOne presents Percy: a bold and versatile lounge chair
Harrogate, United Kingdom — NaughtOne, the global furniture brand, today launches Percy, a stunning, minimalist lounge chair. From offices to universities to hospitality environments, Percy embodies adaptable design ideal for a wide range of modern spaces.
The Percy Lounge Chair is the latest addition to NaughtOne’s range of functional and stylish furniture. Inspired by the simple, utilitarian design of mid-century waiting room chairs, Percy features classic, flowing, uninterrupted lines. There are only two elements that pair to create this lounge chair: the frame’s bold graphic outline and plush quilted upholstery.
“When designing Percy, I was drawn to the combination of solid metal and soft furnishings. I wanted to play with visually softening the metal to create a cohesive, graceful look. I love working with metal and steel, an incredibly durable industrial material, but also able to bend and flow. Designer Nicole Marion said: “This allowed us to create a continuous curve that forms the frame of the cushion.” “The design we came up with has a timeless look, as if it has always been there. But they’re also unique – they can be dressed up or down, and adapt easily to many environments and personal styles.
Although the simple structure is inspired by utilitarian design, it is the perfect basis for customization. In keeping with NaughtOne’s focus on providing customers with a wide range of possibilities, the Percy chair frame can be specified in 16 colors and over 100 upholstery options, resulting in a wide range of potential combinations.
“Percy is special for two reasons,” commented Stephen Floyd, Creative Director of NaughtOne. Firstly, it’s a bit unconventional but in a really charming way. Secondly, we are used to seeing very thin tubular frame chairs, but this is a chunky tubular frame chair that takes full advantage of our RAL panel.”
Percy was presented early in the design process at the 2020 Interior Design Show in Toronto, where it won the Best Prototype award. It’s NaughtOne’s third new product of 2023, following the launch of the Pippin chair and Morse table system earlier this year.
