The Most Beautiful Chair - Oscar Niemeyer's Rio Chaise Longue
Our jaws dropped when we first gazed upon the masterpiece that is the Oscar Niemeyer Rio Chaise Longue. It's been around since 1978, designed by Oscar in collaboration with his daughter, Anna Maria Niemeyer. The curves and beauty of the piece are in homage to Oscar's hometown of Rio de Janeiro. Breathtaking. If you can swing the price-tag, why not? It's functional art. Explore the selection on 1st Dibs. This extraordinary architect's work is chronicled in many books across languages. In fact, this one by Alan Hess and Alan Weintraub is on our wish list for home inspiration. Long live glorious design.
