Commercial Furniture Designers Do Residential – Part 3


Teknion is yet another manufacturer well known for its office furniture that also crafts items that can shine in a home setting. Here are a few of the designs you might see in the commercial or residential arena:

Occasional Tables

Dakar is just one of several models created for use as corner tables or coffee tables. This walnut, cherry, or maple veneered built up top with self-edge detail works in a lobby or an entryway. The darker finishes would look particularly nice in an executive office. Choose from diameters from a slim 18” to a generous 36” to fit your available space.

Side Chairs

The Abington armchair is from Teknion’s classic Philly series. The model shown here has a diamond tufted upholstery that makes it suitable for a corner office guest chair or an old-fashioned parlor. If that style strikes you as too “stuffy”, you can also pick a plain seat and back to retain the cushioning effect without being quite so showy. This is definitely a chair that looks like it would encourage good posture (at least over the short term)!

Lighting

No compendium of Teknion’s products would be complete without a mention of the innovative Conflux design. This LED lamp comes in many sizes, but the freestanding floor lamp is the most imposing. This sculpture like piece would be fantastic for a living room or a collaborative workspace. Its low-glare optic prism will gives you a bright, smooth glow for reading or for working on your laptop.
