Encore Adds Wood Frame Option to Seating Collection

Seating and table solutions provider Encore recently announced the expansion of its Mayland seating collection to include wood frame options, according to a news release. The collection’s guest and lounge models were intended for use in higher-education, healthcare, corporate, and hospitality environments. The wood frame expands the series’ aesthetic beyond metal frames to appeal to a wider variety of environments.

The series was designed by Andrew Gower and Paul Woolf Boettiger of Gower + Woolf. The guest and lounge seating feature fluid curves, layered components, and a tapered back and arms to evoke an air of sophistication, warmth, and elegance.

“The Mayland wood collection embodies a soft and inviting approach to lounge seating, directly responding to the evolving landscape of today’s hybrid work culture,” said Gower.

“Aesthetically, we were interested in the interplay between the soft inner shell and outer wood framework,” said Boettiger. “Particular attention was placed on the sculpting of the cushions and seam locations, emphasizing the design’s warm and welcoming appearance.”

The products also feature details like tailored stitching, a choice of finishes with anti-fingerprint properties, and options for non-skid and VCT glides. More information about the collection and the complete product lineup is available on the Encore website.
