The LOX™ collection is about comfort. Big, plush, comfy seating that is retro in styling yet is contained in a modern day tightly fitted leather body that keeps things clean and neat. “What I truly was after with this collection was comfort without sacrificing the strong linear qualities of modern design,” explains Niu. With it’s wrap around shell, pillows can be easy accommodated while the shallow seating itself is designed to support the lower back.
What also helps achieve this comfort is the hardwood wrap around body and fabric seating are two separate parts. “By keeping the pieces completely independent, it gave us more control over the seating comfort as well as simplifying the upholstery process,” Nolen states. Being that the frame is complete independent from the seat, re-upholstery options are made easy since the seat can be unbolted from the frame and removed.
The tailor fit leather body adds an upscale appeal while the wool fabric is inviting, visually communicating comfort. Stitching on the leather corresponds to the fabric, which is offered in a large variety of vivid colors.
