Japanese Furniture Designer Toshiyuki Kita
Here is a white recliner that is a joint effort between Stokke of Norway and Japanese designer Toshiyuki Kita. This recliner comes in a variety of wood finishes. Of particular interest are the angles in this chair.
Combined with the wood as it meets the angles, you can see the influence of master designer Charles Eames. I like the lift of this modern reclining chair as it creates a fair amount of space between the base and the bottom of the chair.
This technique makes pieces appear smaller than they are though the seating area is that of any normal chair. This approach softens the look of the chair and makes it not look so bulky in any living room.
The price was $1,842 in 2007. What is its value now?

I know it is a bold statement the “perfect white chair for your living room“. Obviously, we all have somewhat different design tastes. But, let's break this down a bit further. The perfect chair will sit comfortably, look great, add to the decor of the room, and not dominate the living room.
When you think of those four, it becomes hard to find the right white chair. Pictured here is Tok from Varier. Tok is a recliner that is designed by Toshiyuki Kita and Ole Petter Wullum.
An amazing feature of the white chair is the amount of technology that went into its design. The shape and curves are designed to create an effortless seating area that supports the body in all the right places.
Norwegians have been famous for their chair designs being some of the most comfortable in the world. Imagine watching a movie from this seat.
“Saruyama” is interesting polyurethane foam furniture that was designed by Toshiyuki Kita. It consists of three pieces of furniture that when placed together form a near circle.
The furniture set can also be split apart creating three different seating areas that each have matching upholstery which makes them tie nicely in a room. The concept for Saruyama is ultra contemporary with each piece having its own unique seating elements.
