Had we been seated in this geometric stunner during geometry class (or any class for that matter), we might have paid more attention. An exclusive creation from the dreamy Capitol Hill fashion and object purveyor Totokaelo (and one of the first pieces that owner Jill Wenger has designed), the Olmstead chair is a buttery leather lounger with an angular wooden base and intricate copper details on the joints. $4,800 at Totokaelo (1523 10th Ave.; 206.623.3582; totokaelo.com).
