Laura Britt Design and Vervano Sustainable Furnishings present the Ethan Youth Lounge. This lovely lounger is directed towards a very specific market—that of the six and under set. The Ethan Youth Lounge is an upholstered, rigid foam affair, done up to please both youngsters and their design-savvy parents.
Ethan Youth Lounge. Designed and Manufactured by Vervano Sustainable Furnishings.
The Youth Lounge is a Sophisticated Primer in Good Design
Modeled after the “grown-up” version (the Lydia Lounge Chair), Ethan sports the slick lines and seamless profile of the best contemporary furnishings. The base is constructed of sturdy hardwood in your choice of walnut or maple—a decidedly attractive and durable element—yet Ethan’s marquee feature is its bold, printed upholstery.
A fabulous farrago of Cerise butterflies atop a floral glyph motif in a comely orange-gold, Ethan’s upholstery has broad appeal, as it will easily charm the most cynical of parents, the most temper-tantrum prone of toddling terrible two-year-olds.
The Ethan Youth Lounge boasts the same green pedigree as all of Vervano’s offerings. This includes sustainably-sourced wood, renewable plant-based foam, low-VOC finishes/adhesives, and durable mortise and tenon joinery.
Built by hand in the United States, the Ethan Youth Lounge is available with organic upholstery and low-impact pigments and dyes. The piece pairs well with Vervano’s companion settee, the Sadie Youth Chaise. But whether you combine it as such, or choose to let it stand all on its own, Ethan makes a bold statement while helping to educate budding connoisseurs of A&D. As Vervano says, “It’s never too soon to introduce good design!”
