The Chair Named For a King Meets a Cushion Meant For a Queen (Me)
During one of the many Zoom happy hours common in the early days of social distancing, a group of friends and I were discussing our favourite quarantine purchases thus far. One answered without hesitation: a Purple seat cushion. Admittedly, I'd heard of this brand only for mattresses, but right after we hung up, I checked out the site and was officially sold myself.
In just a few days, my Louis Ghost Chair by Kartell ($326, originally $465) — named for the classic Louis XVI armchair — had a noble companion in a Purple Royal Seat Cushion ($79). Not only is it barely noticeable when my throne is slid under the desk, but sitting on it is also worlds apart from that bumpy past. Now I can't imagine life without it, and if I ever return to an office, I'm definitely picking up the desk-chair version.
Ahead, see all the available Purple cushions, including ones meant for cars and planes.
