Today I wanted to share with you an exciting new collection of chairs produced by Cult Furniture, a modern and classic furniture design brand. The Moda Collection was designed by Cult Furniture’s in-house design team and is part of the Cult Design brand which is inspired by iconic mid-century designs but with a contemporary twist.
Drawing inspiration from the curved silhouettes and understated textures of mid-century design, the Moda Collection is very much inspired by the iconic Eames design but with a fresh look and an innovative new bracket system.
The collection comes in an extensive colour palette which can be broken down into three complementary colour families. There’s Pop Hot: featuring head-turning bold colours like fresh greens, searing reds, pinks and mauves; Pastel Soft: featuring subtle and fresh tones; and finally, Rich Dark, boasting palate-cleansing white, timeless teal and neutrals like charcoal and grey.
The designers have taken a mix and match approach to the designs allowing you to customise your chair to your exact preferences. There are two types of seat: a classic, bucket-style rounded seat and a slightly higher-backed design. You can also choose from several leg types: chic CD1 stainless steel legs, simple, pyramid-style CD2 wooden legs topped with metal, and finally the iconic, Eiffel Tower-inspired stainless steel and dark oak CD3 legs.
What I really like about these new designs is the fact that they have given the chairs a really up-to-date, fresh appeal, especially with the options of copper and gold legs as we all know that mixed metallics is a rather big trend right now. Whilst it is obvious where the inspiration comes from, the designs do offer something different and new. All that remains now is to see if design lovers will fall for these new designs like they did for the originals that inspired them. I really like the copper legs myself and starting at just £75 for a chair these are most definitely affordable. The difficulty will be deciding which colour to have.
What do you guys think? Could you be convinced to purchase the Moda Collection? Let me know which combination you’d go for.
