Let’s face it; some barstools can be, well, boring. It’s as if no one thought to truly design them. Timeliss Furniture, which specializes in one-off luxury furnishings, especially for megayachts, eschews boring. The Curve barstools, part of its Custom Collection, is a new take on the perennial favorite bar accoutrement.
In fact, Timeliss Furniture turned to Seymour Diamond, a well-known interior-design studio, to create the Curve barstools for a specific client. “We really enjoyed the challenges it presented,” explains Richard Auty, Timeliss Furniture’s director. “The client had high expectations, and we delivered exactly what they wanted.”
Understandably, the customer wanted something more stylish than the norm, yet not trendy as to look dated too soon. Curve gets its name from a few curves. For instance, the backrest base takes the shape of an arch. The stainless steel support—mirror-finished, too—connecting the seat to the base is a pleasing column. Matte-finished rings as the footrest and the base cap it all off.
The well-padded backrest and seat should keep the customer and guests comfortable even if cocktail hour stretches a wee bit longer than usual. The Curve barstools backrest measures 9.6 inches (245 millimeters), with a seat diameter of 15.7 inches (400 millimeters).
“Projects like these may look straightforward on the surface, but they demand a number of careful considerations to ensure the look and feel meet expectation,” Auty stresses. This is as true for the crew as it is for the owners and guests. “They also have to stand the test of time with little maintenance, as well as be easy to clean,” Auty stresses.
