Unusually squishy chairs by Annie Evelyn

Despite looking immensely uncomfortable with its seemingly rough and blocky façade, the ‘Squishy Chair’ actually lets you sink into it once you sit down – giving the idiom, ‘sink back’, a literal meaning. Designed by Annie Evelyn for Brooklyn-based company, New Colony Furniture.

Part foam, part reclaimed wood, the pieces are a product of Evelyn’s special upholstery technique, which she has been developing since she was a student. What we love about these chairs is that they have a mischievous air about them, making you believe you’re going to sit on hard concrete or chopped pieces of wood, then revealing its soft nature once you sit down.
