Top Ten: The Versatile Lounge
The lounge chair has taken many different forms over the years and these days, in commercial design “lounge seating” can mean almost anything, and “executive seating” means almost nothing. Here are a few of our favorite versatile seating options that allow us to work, meet, swivel, collaborate…and of course lounge, in any interior space.
