Varier’S Zero Gravity Recliner

by


Furniture makers Varier are offering space-age Zen goodness in the form of the limited edition Gravity Balans recliner. Varier claims that the Gravity Balans’ fully reclined position is “probably the closest you will get to zero gravity”, because in it one ends up in a position where the feet are higher than the heart. You guys figure that one out.

The shape of the chair is definitely weird; even Varier says it’s weird. And we all know that weirdly shaped furniture = expensive furniture. Not one to rebel,the Gravity Balans sells for $1,200. Clearly only handsome painters with level 2 stubble who love to nap after painting will be able to afford this.

Each of the 250 Gravity Balans recliners will be signed and numbered by its designer, Peter Opsvik. Buyers can customize their purchase with various colors and accents, and can even choose to have a “kid-friendly” version. I assume that the kid-friendly version can be used to go sledding. While experiencing zero gravity.

  1. Tried a zero gravity chair out a couple of years ago – I wanted one then, I want one even more now. The only drawback -can- be your height: my wife couldn’t get the one we tried to lean back and stay back (she’s 5’4″, I’m 5’11″).

    I had the same problem, however I contacted the distributor (New Designs for Comfort, in mass) and they added a small piece of lead, to the head rest — completely solved the problem! I have seen this price of $1200 floating around… that is wrong. They sell for $2500 and up, yet WELL WORTH IT. This furniture will last a lifetime and I know that the company offers replacement pads if you ever need them.

    A great place that sells this chair and similar designer furniture is a store in Nashville called 2 Danes. Their number is 615-352-6085. Beautiful.
