Lounge Around does it all. According to designer Soren Ravn Christensen, the 3-seater works just as well for having friends over as for lying down solo to read a book or binge on TV. It's even ready-made for sleeping. Destined to be a standout in any home, it's calm and clean-lined in the Nordic style with a base framework of solid oak and a comfy combination of foam layers in the seat cushions. Lounge Around is available with optional custom features, including a magazine rack and small side table. (See separate A+R listing.) All in all, it's a highlight of the debut furniture collection from Umage.

Not many people would give a successful brand a name-changing reboot but that’s exactly what Søren Ravyn Christian did with Umage, which aptly translates from the Danish as making an extra effort. Formerly lighting label Vita Copenhagen, the relaunched company also branched into furniture, boldly debuting 15 pieces in a single swoop. For Søren, it’s all about problem solving: “Our design ethos is to look at a design and think how can we make this functional?... How can we make the annoying and unattractive, functional and attractive?”
The answer is range of thoughtful offerings, from the feathered Eos pendant light to the sculptural Reader chair and multipurpose Lounge Around seating. All Umage products are flat-packed in stylish boxes, to simplfy global logistics, make the products more accessible and minimize the carbon footprint. “It means putting in the extra effort with all our designs and the whole journey and process of that piece,” Soren says. “It means being clever with packaging so we are not shipping something across the oceans that is 90% air.”
