Chubby furniture trend | From Matti Carlson to H&M and Tom Dixon

After reading ‘It’s fat, round and cuddly’ in the press release of Tom Dixon this morning I realized we continue seeing round shapes and almost chubby furniture. I must say I love the simple lines and the almost inelegant look! The Frama table I photographed is a good example, see here: A shopping guide for a minimalistic and multifunctional home

After releasing their first collection of small furniture and lighting last year, a new collection of H&M furniture was designed. Pieces of different material such as rattan, oak, brass, powder coated steel and glass including the wooden round table with chubby legs shown above. 

Cubby legs also in the ‘Homage Grande table’ by Matti Carlson, here photographed at the home of architect, designer and lamp maker Andreas Martin-Löf If you love this table have a look also at the smaller version in this post Five sculptural side tables that would fit anywhere in your home

FAT, is the new upholstery chair range by Tom Dixon that allows for multiple sitting positions. Tom Dixon: ” the extreme simplicity of the components is a testament to form following function, whilst maintaining a humorous silhouette and a reductionist aesthetic” Available as a dining chair, high stool and lounge chair. Expect the launch of the chair in a special restaurant in Milan this next month!
