Percy is a bold, versatile lounge chair from NaughtOne inspired by mid-century design.

Global furniture brand, NaughtOne has launched Percy - a striking yet simple lounge chair.

From offices to universities to hospitality environments, Percy offers adaptable design to suit a wide range of contemporary spaces.

Inspired by the simple, utilitarian aesthetic of mid-century waiting room chairs, Percy features classic, uninterrupted flowing lines. Only two elements marry to create the piece: the bold graphic outline of the frame and the plush, cushioned upholstery.

“When designing Percy, I was drawn to the combination of hard metal and soft upholstery. I wanted to play with visually softening the metal to create a cohesive, curvaceous look. I love working with metal and steel as it’s an incredibly durable, industrial material, but it can also bend and flow. This allowed us to create the continuous curve forming the cushion frame,” comments designer Nicole Marion. “The design we landed on has a timeless look, almost as if it’s always existed. But it’s also unique – and can be dressed up or down, easily adapting to many environments and personal styles.”

While inspired by a utilitarian design, the simple structure allows for customisation. In keeping with NaughtOne’s focus on providing clients with a breadth of possibilities, the Percy Chair frame can be specified with a choice of 16 colours and over 100 upholstery options, leading to a wide range of potential combinations.

Stephen Floyd, creative director, NaughtOne, added: “Percy is special for two reasons. Firstly, it’s a little unconventional but in a really charming way. Secondly, we’re used to seeing really thin tubular frame chairs, but this is a chunky tubular frame chair that fully takes advantage of our RAL palette.”
