Designers Rate: Guest Seating_01 Marla Bommarito-Crouch, FIIDA, LEED AP, CEO
The Bommarito Group
Austin, Texas
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_02 HBF, Brentwood
Many manufactures do this style, but the comfort and proportion of this Brentwood chair far exceeds any other.
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_03 Knoll, Saarinen Executive Chair with Tubular Legs
When you’ve got something great—as with the Saarinen chair—you cannot beat it.
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_04 HighTower, Happy
There is a side chair version of Happy that we like and use, but the lounge chair has a ½-in. lower seat, and I like that better for use as a side chair.  
It is more relaxing, will swivel, and makes the guest feel more important.

STUDIOS architecture
New York
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_06 DWR, Wishbone Chair by Hans Wegner
In terms of scale, weight, proportion, comfort, and timeless aesthetic, Hans Wegner’s Wishbone (specifically the black lacquer version) is the perfect chair.
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_07 Minotti, Twombly Armchair
The sculptural form counterbalanced with leather wrapped steel makes the Twombly armchair elegant but substantial.
Designers Rate: Guest Seating_08 Cassina, Eve Chair by Piero Lissoni
Minimalistic but not austere, the simple form of the Eve Chair (specifically with an aluminum frame) will work anywhere.
