Designer Annie Evelyn from New Colony Furniture [1] creates weird and wonderful seats using a technique she developed herself. Her “upholstered” chairs are made from hard materials but can be “squished” to provide for comfy seating. Her latest design, the Scotty Chair, is an elegant outdoor seat made from ash wood.

We recently caught a glimpse of Evelyn’s seats during New York Design Week [2]. Out of her NYC studio, the designer has been developing her own technique for making tactile furniture since she was a student. Her first job as a professional upholsterer gave her the chance to work closely with foam and inspired her love for the craft.

To date, she has developed a series of chairs and even sofas employing the same technique, but with different materials—including concrete, wood sticks, and now, eco-friendly reclaimed Cypress [3].
