Editor's picks at International Contemporary Furniture Fair
ICFF( Plug )
The Echo lounge chair from a small New Jersey firm called Plug is built without any fasteners: Wood slats slip into the metal frame. Pieces of felted wool are slipped between the slats to provide a cushioned seat; thicker pieces can be inserted at the neck, lower back or other areas, allowing customers to customize their chair. The wool inserts also can be plucked out, washed and reinserted.
