Back in the depths of 2008, we featured the MR armchair, a modernist classic from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. But if you want something a little more laid back, you might want to check out the equally stylish Knoll MR chaise longue.

It's very much a companion piece to the 1920 classic, oozing cool from its tubular polished chrome frame and floating curves – indeed, as the seat itself cantilevers over the base, it's also an incredibly minimalist design. And if you're worried about comfort, the seat has plenty to offer from those individual quilted and seamed cushion sections.

Each one has the signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe stamped into the base of the chair, along with an individual production number, with a choice of black or white for colours. No matter which you choose, it retails for just over £4,000.
