‘‘Le Feuilleté’ is an armchair that offers comfort and storage pockets. The seat is composed of what looks like four sheets of soft felt stitched together in a rigid metal frame. The layers of felt creates a pouch on either sides of the chair in which the user can slip books, magazine, phone, touch screen, note book, etc. Pressed flat at the back, the varying widths of felt widen gradually around the arm rests to form the subtle and disappearing pouches.
