Flow armchair by Jean Marie Massaud for MDF Italia
Designer: Jean-Marie Massaud, a French innovator known for sleek, understated furniture and geeked-out fantasy projects like his blimp hotel.
Replaces: Your Eames shell chair—it will always be a classic, but it's time you invested in a piece that's all your own.
What's More: It's a warmer version of its plastic predecessor, with a draftsman-style oak base and foam cushioning hidden inside the seat.
