The Classic - Reinvented
Tarry is a collection of beautiful wing back chairs and footstools designed by Allermuir in partnership with Wolfgang C.R.Mezger. A reinterpretation of a classic design, Tarry is a range of modern lounge furniture designed to invite private discussion or quiet contemplation.
Tarry Wood is a new addition to the wider Tarry range. Launching at this year’s CDW, Tarry Wood includes a wing back chair and footstool that both sit on four solid Ash legs.
Reflective of status, Tarry creates a prestigious presence within a room with an enduring impact. Tarry offers flexibility within any area, as it can be used as a stand-alone piece for a solitary sit, or positioned in pairs or clusters to invite conversation and collaboration in small groups within a subdued and calm atmosphere.
Tarry was created to provide a domestic level of beauty and comfort with the durability of a commercial piece. Some chairs look stunning, but don’t invite the user to sit for a prolonged period of time. Some chairs are exceptionally comfortable, but compromise on their beauty and durability.
Tarry was created as a solution to all of these issues, while also addressing the need for a product with high acoustic properties. This is a particular challenge given that every person is different in their proportions and preferences.
“I see Tarry as a modern interpretation of the classic wing back chair. Incorporating new details and a unique typology that creates a complex sculpture with swept back ears and integrated armrests. The thought process behind Tarry was to create a seat with the highest levels of comfort that captures an individual protected feeling.
Tarry is a chair that will create a feeling of a self-existence in public spaces and allow users to work undisturbed with mobile technology, creating an illusion of privacy that invites us to simply relax. When used in executive offices Tarry is a retreat and a chair that will soon find company in residential areas.
Tarry is a charming chair that architects and designers would choose not just for interiors but enjoy themselves.”
Tarry’s height adjustable headrest creates the perfect amalgamation of ergonomics and relaxation. Softly cushioned, it provides support for the head and neck that in turn causes the person sitting in it to breathe correctly and relax.
The addition of a complementary footstool provides an added level of comfort, to alleviate tired feet or rest a book or laptop on raised knees. It also provides a secondary seat, for a guest to perch for a moment.
Tarry’s defining silhouette lends itself well to a variety of fabric or leather upholstery types including two-tone. This is accompanied by twin stitch detailing that is both beautiful and enduring.
Tarry’s solid Ash legs can be left with a clear finish to expose the beauty of the wood grain, or stained or colour washed in many hues offered by Allermuir. This specification can be mirrored on the footstool, or a complementary palette can be chosen for a more striking look.
The wider Tarry range includes a lounge chair available on a four star swivel metal base with tilt action that can be finished in Black or Ceramic White powder coat. A complementary footstool with matching base is also available. Tarry’s flexible design makes it an ideal solution for breakout areas and executive lounges, or hotel and hospitality environments.
Tarry will be exhibiting at Clerkenwell Design Week 2018. Visitors are welcome at the Allermuir Showroom Fox and Knot St, London EC1M 6HP.
