My next venture is modern beds. I’d love to design a bed that is as comfortable as a sofa when seated in, something simple, clean and authentic.

For the second time this year, The Sofa & Chair Company has been shortlisted for the International Product Design Awards, this time with their new design ‘The Fenton’. This stunning designer chair has received a great deal of attention since it was released last month and many are keen for the remaining finalists to be revealed.

The Fenton is a unique piece; its distinctive back and original shape make it truly enviable. Designed by Jonathan Barber, The Fenton draws on influences from the Art Deco era. This beautiful swivel armchair is a perfectly proportioned piece that aspires to become a true modern classic.

Barber explained “It’s all about fusing emotion and comfort with style. The Fenton is a great example of this. It is important to ensure that designs serve their purpose as well as being desirable.” He continued “My next venture is modern beds. I’d love to design a bed that is as comfortable as a sofa when seated in, something simple, clean and authentic.“

Jonathan Barber is a Product Designer at The Sofa & Chair Company, the company specialises in sofas and luxury furniture, offering a collection of modern furniture with a classic twist. The Sofa & Chair Company is currently one of four finalists in the Chair category of the International Product Design Awards, more are yet to be shortlisted. Other nominees include Bespoke Global, GoCarbon and Rebecca Scott, the winner will be announced late in 2013.

The Fenton is available at The Sofa & Chair Company’s London showroom, where you can have your very own Fenton created in your choice of upholstery.
