While we did already have an Astro chair on the floor, we recently received another from Steven Anthony in a gorgeous Luna fabric with matte dark walnut legs. The back cushion is untufted and the entire chair features knife-edge seams. This chair would look great as a side chair in your bedroom or living room, or wherever else you need a comfortable sitting chair.

Warren Platner (1919- 2006)
Warren Platner studied architecture at Cornell University. Following his work with legendary designers Raymond Loewy, Eero Saarinen and I. M. Pei, he immersed himself in the creation of steel wire furniture, devising the method and tooling to produce the lounge chair in the line as well. Notable among his residential and commercial projects are the Georg Jensen Design Center and the Windows on the World restaurant in the World Trade Center, both in New York City.
Sofas, sectionals and chairs are available in 4 different styles as it relates to tight or loose cushions. We’re often chatting with Vastu customers about the difference, so we thought we’d bring the conversation to the blog.
#1 Tight seat / tight back
This style of sofa, sectional, or chair has no loose cushions. The look of a tight seat/tight back piece is, generally, more modern than the other options as the piece has very clean lines (no cushions that move and shift around a little). While many people find this style of seating comfortable, this isn’t the go-to style for a piece you plan to do a lot of lounging on. Here’s an example of a tight seat/tight back sofa…
#2 Tight seat / loose back
We’re in the home stretch! We talked about the first two steps in the Vastu personalized upholstery process here, and then went on to share steps 3 and 4 in the process here. So you know that first you choose a style, then you determine dimensions, then you select a fabric (or leather), and then you choose a leg style and finish. Now, we’re going to share the final three steps you take to create your unique upholstered piece made by Steven Anthony.
Step 5: Seat and Back Cushions
You may choose how many cushions you would like for both the seat and back of your sofa or sectional assuming the style you choose has loose cushions. All of our loose seat cushion sofas are made standard with down-wrapped foam cushions. Watch this video for a closer look at how Steven Anthony constructs his sofa, sectional, and chair cushions:
Step 6: Cushion Firmness
Well, we covered steps 1 and 2 yesterday, so now we can move on to steps 3 and 4 of the Vastu personalized upholstery process.
Step 3: Fabric or Leather
You can choose from hundreds of different fabric and leather swatches located throughout our store for your Steven Anthony upholstered piece. We’ve got some amazing choices – everything from incredibly durable microsuedes, top grain leathers, velvets, gorgeous woven upholstery, and more. We carry well recognized names in the world of upholstery like Maharam and Designer’s Guild. And while we’re confident most customers will find a fabric or leather they like from our numerous options, you do also have the option of providing your own upholstery. We want to ensure you’re getting exactly what you want!
Step 4: Legs and Frame
Wood legs and wood trim details are available in 16 different stains and finishes. Legs are also available in varying heights and a few different shapes. If you prefer your sofa, sectional, bench, ottoman, chair or bed had metal legs, no problem! You can choose from metal post legs, L-bracket legs and metal trim details – all available in a brushed or polished finishes in varying heights.
Here at Vastu we pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients personalized upholstery solutions. Whether you’re in need of a 66″ long sofa in a blue velvet with metal legs, a 10′ x 10′ sectional in white leather with wood legs, or a custom credenza, we have the answer. However you want it, we can help you make it…
