So tell me how its aesthetics greatly diverge from any number of similar style recliners I've seen posted here and endorsed by those with good taste.
Short answer: it looks like an "executive" chair you'd get from Brookstone or an in-flight mail order catalog.
1. No cohesion in the design. The parts do not come together into an elegant whole. There was no effort or talent exerted in trying to simplify the form.
2. Individual elements are clumsy. The cushions are flat, rectangular planes that are too puffed up to be purposefully taut and too deflated looking to be purposefully full.The shape of the base has no relation to the body.
3. Overall design lacks the sort of tension that is effected when a thing is teetering on the edge of not being physically possible because the designer has pushed possibilities to the limit. Really well-designed furniture should feel alive. This does not.
