At the start of the new football season there’s one stereotype in particular that inspired us for this post. Apparently the whole nation (or male population at least) will lay back in their lazy boys and yell at the TV every time the game is on for the next few months. While we fully embrace the yelling at the TV, we also think it should be done in style. Therefore we give you our selection of the best modern lounge chairs to root for your favorite team with class.
Womb Chair Volo Leather $4,983.55
This expressive sculptural chair from Eero Saarinen’s furniture has a strong architectural form and won’t be just a great spot to rest off or watch the game but also a piece that will uplift the feel of the whole room. It’s a great piece for any bachelor pad.
LC3 Grand Modele Armchair $5,345
The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as “cushion baskets,” which is exactly what we look in a comfy armchair – a basket of cushions. This chair will hug you for hours and satisfy your need for elegant minimalism and industrial style.
Eames Chaise Lounge Chair $5,777
If you’d like to leave all the yelling to more hot-headed football fans than there’s no reason you shouldn’t lay down and enjoy the game from the horizontal position. The Eames Chaise is soft, comfortable, and just 18″ wide. It’s a great design piece for any living space, office, den or study.
Barcelona Chair $4,614.65
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair displays modern design at its best. Designed to serve as sa eating for the king and queen of Spain at the International Design Exhibition in Barcelona, it’s safe to say it will serve greatly as your piece of kingdom as well.
Eames Lounge and Ottoman Chair $4,559
If this lounge chair is Charles and Ray Eames’ idea of bringing greater pleasure to our lives than who are we to disagree. The warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt makes this chair one of the most significant designs of the 20th century. It’s quite possible it will steal all the spotlight from the match.
Modernica Papa Bear Chair $2,895
Not too hard, not too soft, with wood tipped arms like big bear paws, the Papa Bear Chair cuddles the sitter with a big bear hug. Imagine a bucket full of cold beers and salty popcorn, cheering from this cozy chair will be your favorite chore this whole football season.
Womb Chair and Ottoman $3,290.35
Are you up for some color? This edition of the Womb Chair is a bit more passionate and includes soft fabric and chrome frame. It’s one of the iconic pieces of furniture that look good with almost any and every type of interior. If your team is colored red, then why shouldn’t you be as well.
LC4 Chaise Lounge $3,615
The LC4 lounge chair is a relaxing machine because of the way it mirrors the body’s natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. It will take watching the game to a whole new level. Just make sure you don’t fall asleep in the middle of it.
Nelson Coconut Chair $5,175
George Nelson’s Coconut chair has to be one of the cleverest and simplest designs that still to this day, after 60 years since its invention, stays modern. Its unique form invites a number of different seating positions which is perfect for something as delicate as game watching.
Herman Miller Eames Lounge Chair with Ottoman $5,789
The classic silhouettes of this Eames Lounge Chair designed by Charles & Ray Eames feature molded shells in ash wood, stained in a deep Ebony finish. It’s modern and built to stand the test of time. Just don’t test it too often if your team doesn’t perform as good as you want them to.
