Singita Sweni Lodge hotel – Kruger National Park, South Africa
“This environment seems so fitting for the Recliner Chair as it is inspired by nature – the chair shape was influenced by the shape of the Cape Cobra and the pattern detail is reminiscent of the veins in leaves, tree branches intersecting, the patterns in dragonfly wings, cracked soil and natural textures.” – Joanina Pastoll – designer of the Recliner chair.
Comment from the designer of the lodge:
– says De Sousa Costa. ‘Inserting a contemporary look into the bush space has made the lodge appropriate and new within an African context.’
New African Inspired Striped pattern – available on request
Our Pinterest inspiration board for our new Recliner chair with striped detail. Each one of our chairs are made by hand. In the models like these with pattern detailing, it allows for each piece to have individualism and uniqueness in the detailing due to the variance of craftsmanship. All of them are ideal for use inside or out.
In the right circles
One of our laid-back favorites with the same form fitting comfort, now available on request with in a
new circular patterning.
Lounging at Earth Lodge
Some pictures of our very comfortable big basket loungers at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. A collaboration with Derrick Tabbert and Design Republic. The feedback has been that they are hugely relaxing, and the setting of course makes for an incredibly memorable experience. (We have had a few clients order some loungers to have at home)
Loads of Living
Loads of Living and Studio Stirling are collaborating to make relaxing this summer as comfortable as possible. Laze on a LEAF chair (available from Studio Stirling) and sink into your choice of luxurious outdoor scatters (from Loads of Living).
We’re sold on summer!

Getting into the swing of Spring
Hundreds of people got into the swing of spring in our hanging swing chairs at the annual Giardina show in Zurich, Switzerland. Giardina, Europe’s highest-quality indoor event was themed ‘live your garden’ this year. An impressive variety of exhibits on a surface area of more than 30,000 m2, inspired the 60,000 or so delighted visitors it attracted over the five days of the event. Amidst spectacular sample gardens and artistic installations, garden lovers found a wealth of inspiration and ideas and could for a moment hang loose in one our Single Recliner or Nest Egg hanging swing chairs.
Satisfied customers getting the hang of it
A collection of pics from some recent happy customers – think we can all agree why sit when you can swing.
A big PLUS!
Switzerland home to numerous lakes, villages and the high peaks of the Alps, is now also home to the first chairs of Studio Stirling. A renowned Swiss watch might feel it is ticking away a little slower as you enjoy and relax in one of these chairs. Now that’s a plus.
On their way to hang out in Europe
Our latest shipment of hand made chairs freshly and securely packed is on their way to Marie-Louise our partner in Europe. We are sure they will have a bon voyage and we wish them relaxing moments at their new homes in the near future.

New York – Arthur Sachs Mansion
We are so excited to have our Single Recliner chair feature in this wonderful space in New York City. 22 designers and architects have been tasked with reviving the interiors of the five-floor, 9,600 square-foot townhouse in support of Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. An estimated 20,000 people are expected to tour the finished Show House which serves as the non-profit organization’s premier annual fundraiser.
We donated the chair to the USA Cultural Landscape Association, who sold it on its blind auction to raise funds. Janice Parker Landscapers, who bought it, is now using it here for a good cause again. So it is the chairs’ 2nd time round to be involved in funds raising.

The Cultural Landscape Foundation in partnership with the American Society of Landscape Architects has an initiative to raise funds to support educationprogrammes and promote their mission of stewardship through education.
To support the development of this and other important initiatives, TCLF conducted its tenth annual silent auction of artwork in Denver, Colorado featuring sketches, paintings, photographs, books, and furniture pieces executed by notable landscape architects, artists and celebrated designers. TCLF received many positive comments regarding the strength and diversity of this year’s collection, which included our Single Recliner Hanging Chair. We believe it received quite some attention and made its way off to a new home after the auction. We were privileged to be amongst the respected talent that donated work.
