Specializing in extraordinarily innovative, contemporary furniture, Gärsnäs is a Swedish manufacturer with a history dating back to 1893. Producing expertly manufactured designs from their family-owned factory in Österlen, Sweden, Gärsnäs upholds an admirable commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly processes and materials, while developing absolutely magnificent designs, each of which is a work of art, an exercise in detail and precision, and a commitment to functionality, all at once. With a relationship spanning nearly half a decade, SUITE NY is honored to showcase our partnership with this incredible brand. This week, we’re highlighting five must-haves from Gärsnäs’ stunning collection, all designed by the inimitable design duo, Färg & Blanche.
ELIN
Färg & Blanche
The Stockholm based studio, Färg & Blanche was founded in 2010. Swedish designer Fredrik Färg and French designer Emma Marga Blanche were driven by their desire to experiment with design techniques and choice of material, and quickly gained a reputation for their inventive concepts, creative use of materials, and playful details. The duo draws inspiration from their award-winning Emma chair to bring us the wonderfully innovative Elin chair. While clearly taking after the Emma, Elin’s lower back and petite arms make it reminiscent of a classical Gothenburg chair. However, this contemporary design exudes modernity through its distinct, upholstered pattern. Elin is available with a swivel base or a four-legged wood base in ash or oak. 
EMILY AND ELIN BAR
Färg & Blanche
Who says comfort and coziness should just be reserved for easy chairs? Certainly not Gärsnäs. Two stylish, modern classics from Gärsnäs, Emily and Elin, are now available as bar stools. Färg & Blanche explain: “we believe in sitting comfortably, even at a bar. With Emily and Elin at bar height, you can sit comfortably longer, perhaps all evening.” The execution is the same as the chairs that inspired the stools: a moulded-textile back and through-stitching, the innovative sewing technique pioneered by Färg & Blanche, which has become their signature and speciality. If you’ve been searching for an exceptionally comfortable and cozy bar seating option, we believe you’ve found your match.
JULIUS
Färg & Blanche
Meet Julius: a generous and inviting easy chair unlike any other. Julius is made using the revolutionary eco-friendly and waste-minimizing technique of “wood tailoring.” Färg and Blanche have invented and developed this concept, in which the wood, padding and upholstery are all sewn together by the hands of highly skilled craftsmen. Sewing machines are used to stitch directly on to the wood, piecing together different materials and parts, and the result is a highly unique stitching pattern that decorates the outer wood shell with thread available in a variety of colors. Julius features stunning upholstery, which adds extraordinary comfort and creates a beautiful visual and textural contrast against the sleek wooden frame.
MR. N
Färg & Blanche
Looking for the office chair of your dreams? Allow us to introduce you to Mr. N. This chair incorporates unsurpassed comfort, not often found in office furniture, through it’s plush inner upholstery, allowing you to sit for extended periods of time without feeling any discomfort. The visible wood and pronounced stitching make the setting warmer and more personal, offering a sense of coziness amidst a beautifully progressive design. Available upholstered in a wide range of fabrics, with threading available in black, orange, green, brown, dark grey, light grey, or off-white, Mr. N can be customized to fit effortlessly into your home office. Additionally, the sleek swivel base offers essential convenience and mobility.
EMILY
Färg & Blanche
The Emily chair reflects Färg & Blanche’s influence by being effortlessly stylish. The unique decorative stitching in the upholstery adds a distinct artistic character to this piece, which is also a signature in many of the duo’s designs. Featuring plush, inviting upholstery and a shape that cozily envelopes the sitter, you can’t help but fall in love with Emily. Incredibly elegant yet astoundingly approachable, Emily is a fantastically comfortable chair without sacrificing style and sophistication. Fitting for residential and contract use alike, Emily is equally suited for a conference or a dining table, always remaining pleasing to the eye in any setting.
