 Iconic designs do more than just provide comfort and convenience—they tell a story, they make a statement, and they symbolize an appreciation and understanding for a specific, irreplaceable moment in time. These designs serve as milestones that influence future designers for decades to come, while allowing us to forge meaningful connections with specific designers, eras, and concepts. This week, we’re featuring five iconic designs to imbue moments of design history into your space.
Alvar Aalto, 1933
Some designs have an instantly striking quality about them, effortlessly transforming a space and leaving a lasting impression—Armchair 401 is one such design. Through masterful construction and elegant design, Armchair 401 is a triumph of engineering and aesthetics from the mind of Alvar Aalto. The high back is designed with ergonomics in mind. The sprung seat, winged headrest, and curved armrests—formed from a single piece of wood—define a chair that is equally pleasing to look at and use. Birch frame available in clear lacquer, black lacquer, walnut stain, or honey stain.
Maarten Van Severen, 2004
Flawless form and classic functionality intersect in the linear, contemporary design of the LL04. Designed by acclaimed Belgian furniture designer Maarten Van Severen, this lounger is both minimalistic and organic. Quality materials and detailed hand-stitching work in tandem to provide a piece that is as stylish as it is comfortable. The chair’s unique geometry and clean lines feel modern, easily and effectively elevating your space. Seat in full-grain, hand-stitched cowhide.
Poul Kjærholm, 1956
The discrete and elegant PK22™ has been an icon since its debut in 1956. A lounge chair that epitomizes the work of Poul Kjærholm, PK22 was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premier design fair. The prize catapulted Kjærholm’s career, making him an immediate success on the international design scene, a position he has held ever since. Available in leather, wicker or canvas.
Bodil Kjær, 1959
Bodil Kjær’s design has been called ‘the most beautiful desk in the world.’ Designed in 1959, Office Desk is also known as the ‘James Bond desk,’ as it was featured prominently in three early Bond films. A trailblazer in midcentury furniture design whose iconic pieces slip effortlessly into contemporary life, Kjær created the Office Desk to be both elegant and functional. The desktop features four locking drawers and is available in walnut or oak. Aluminum frame available in red or grey lacquer.

Hans J. Wegner, 1949
PP501 is so iconic, it’s simply known as “The Chair.” Built to highlight and exemplify Danish design principles, PP501 played a huge role in defining Hans J. Wegner’s illustrious career. It became the cornerstone of Danish chair construction and is consistently used by designers as a reference point to this day. The Chair claimed a historical significance when it was used in John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon’s first televised debate, transcending its European roots and embedding itself permanently in American culture.
