Approach the Bench! Folding Chairs Have Dual Personalities

The extra seating in a home – that is, those chairs that are hauled out only for large get-togethers or special occasions – is most often relegated to a dark corner when not in use. What would happen if it were lovely enough to leave out and on display at all times?

Cóm-oda is a set of chairs from Spanish designers Mr. Simon that just begs to be put on display. When not in use, they are stored together in a bench-like formation that boasts an intricate design.

The wood-and-cloth construction make the chairs easy to fold up and stash out of the way – but not too far out of the way, of course. When put together side-by-side, the chairs form a bench that can be used as an alternative seating solution.

By giving the chairs a dual identity, Mr. Simon has done something no one has been able to do with folding chairs until now: made them into objects of desire that never need to be hidden away.
