Challenging times call on us to go big or go home. And when it all gets too much, we want to go home to a welcoming, restorative environment that readies us to fight another day. If you're looking to feather your nest with an extra dose of comfort, then go big. Think deep seated, richly upholstered, overstuffed sofas and lounge chairs. Handpicked by Pamono editors from the well-priced inventory of Dutch dealer The Loods, these seven vintage seating options will leave you all warm and fuzzy inside.
Cognac Leather Sofa Arne Norell for Aneby Møbler
In the world of vintage midcentury modern, no one epitomized comfort and ease more than Swedish designer Arne Norell. Norell is a go-to option when you're looking for classic plus cush.
Cognac Leather Easy Chairs by Michel Cadestin for Airborne
French designer Michel Cadestin created many iconic chairs at the height of the Space Age style in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This pair produced by Airborne has all the biomorphic curves he's known for, but it's fully upholstered from every angle for maximum luxurious repose.
Bastiano Lounge Chair by Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Knoll International
The vintage designs of Italian husband-and-wife team Afra and Tobia Scarpa are having a moment right now. Who can resist the way they balance generous proportions with minimalist forms? The Bastiano is one of the duo's most iconic works. This one features richly grained rosewood and cushions in aubergine wool.
Modular DS-76 Seats from de Sede
The DS-76 has been in production since 1972, and they only get better with time. Swiss manufacturer de Sede designed this model so that the leather upholstery takes on a relaxed, wrinkling effect with repeated use, so it's increasingly pleasurable to sink into after a long day.
Swedish Chesterfield Sofa
Chesterfield-style sofas date back to the 19th century and have never really gone out of style ever since. This one exudes a cozy moodiness in tufted black leather embellished with black fringe at the base—parlor chic at its best.
Petronilla Armchair by Vittorio Prato for Meritalia
Italian furniture manufacturer Meritalia is known for supplying upscale hotels and the aristocratic homes of the international glitterati. The brand's Petronilla Chair from the 1980s is one part Art Deco, one part minimalism. And the result is ample space for sitting back and taking a load off.
Rive Droite Armchair by Christophe Delcourt for Roche Bobois
This 21st-century design by French designer Christophe Delcourt for Roche Bobois also has a certain Deco flair but reined in by a rather compact silhouette. In gray leather, it emits a subdued vibe without sacrificing deeply cushioned comfort.
