Float Outdoor Lounge Chair

Have you got your outdoor spaces sorted yet? Spring is finally here, and I have started thinking about decorating my balcony. It’s tiny, so there is literally only room for a chair, a small table and a few plants, but in my dreams I would have one of these fluffy lounge chairs from Skagerak out there. While that won’t be happening, I’m toying with the thought of having it in my livingroom instead…

The Float chair was designed by Mette Skjærbæk, founder of the Danish wellness brand Karmameju. Mette designed Float some years ago when she spent several years in New York and often had many guests in her tiny flat. When Mette returned to Denmark she missed the informal but versatile and capacious furniture elements. Later, when she got a garden, she was unable to find outdoor furniture that matched the same requirements, so she designed her own floor-level modular lounge system.

After several years under the Karmameju brand, Skagerak acquired the furniture concept in 2012 to provide a durable outdoor solution. Thus, Float has been updated in both construction and materials to meet the exacting quality and durability requirements that Skagerak’s outdoor furniture has to meet. Float was therefore raised up from the ground on an electro-galvanised, lacquered aluminium frame, and the voluminous cushions were made in Skagerak’s own ground-breaking and patented Barriere® textile, which can withstand sunlight without fading and showers without drowning, and which is even resistant to rot.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
