Whether being used to create a vignette, or to spruce up an otherwise mundane area, accent chairs provide that extra punch to bring a space to life. One we love is the new Coliseum Club Chair by the New Orleans furniture brand, Doorman Designs. The first iteration of the chair — which is modern, funky, classic and sculptural all at once — has been made in collaboration with another New Orleans brand, a textile company dubbed Palm Orleans.
The Doorman team bends each panel by hand on a metal press; welds and fabricates the chair back and seat; and then powder-coats the metal in bronze, black and white. The base of rolled aluminum stock with intricately turned zig zags provides a backdrop for the sun-resistant, acrylic-dyed Palmetto Stripe fabric (available in three color ways). The Coliseum Club Chair also is also available in a white Perennials Performance fabric with black piping (or custom materials). It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
