For those preferring a more cushioned surface, three of Moroso’s classic chairs are now available with soft quilted upholstery.

The three designs that are available with the new quilted seat option are the Moon Chair by Tokujin Yoshioko, Take a Soft Line for a Walk by Alfredo Häberli, and Fjord Relax by Patricia Urquiola. The quilted seats are all offered with an optional zip-on/zip-off, polyester microfiber-filled quilted cover.  In addition to softness, the quilts provide a welcome splash of color and texture.

Take a Line for a Walk (2003) is a modern interpretation of a classic wing back chair, providing an enveloping enclosure for a cocoon of comfort.  This year, it has been updated with the addition of a quilt to become "Take a Soft Line for a Walk".  It comes on a four star swivel base with optional ottoman or on legs with optional attached footrest.  There is also a two person version.   The quilt zips snugly around the contour of the shell.
