Do you remember Lincoln Logs from when you were a kid? That’s what immediately comes to mind, well that and log cabins, when taking a look at the Cabin Lounges from DesignByThem. Sarah Gibson & Nicholas Karlovasitis, who go by GibsonKarlo, are the founders of DesignByThem and their latest release features armchairs, lounges, ottomans, and a booth, all of which look as if they were built like a log cabin, hence their name. Each of the pieces is made of a series of upholstered “log” modules that stack in an intersecting pattern, much like the way a log cabin is constructed.
The idea began as a series of cylinders from a deconstructed cabin, which they arranged to create various types of seating. They experimented to get the diameter of the cylinders correct to maximize comfort for the back and armrests.
