The traditional Papasan, bought by the U.S. military men in 1970s-80s during the Vietnam War to the states as a gift for their wives, has undergone a tremendous change fitting to a more contemporary world now. Papasan, a bowl-shaped, cushioned chair having a definite 1970s feel to it, is admired by many for its quirky aesthetic though plenty are put off by its precarious-seeming nature having woken up stiff and contorted sleeping in it, in an unassuming fatal position for eight hours. The chair spells chic to some and uncomfortable for others. All said and done, reformed Papasan chairs have found place in households.

Lindsey Shook, editorial and brand director of “California Home + Design Magazine” says that she has noticed that the original Papasan shape has undergone a change and brands like Bend Goods and Baxter, are transforming it by playing more with metal finishes, cords, installing smaller pillows and changing the shape of the chair. The new Papasans are lightweight and easy to move about, having endless re-styling opportunities due to this new avatar. The cushions can be replaced and a colourful blanket can be added to the vintage change to give it a fresh face. The saucer-shaped Papasan chair have regained popularity due to its boho-chic style. The reinvented Papasan is modern, earthy while being comfortable and casual fitting to the youthful spirit at the same time.

Papasan goes by various names- the bucket chair, the saucer chair, the bowl chair, the moon chair, amongst others. Its name is a mixture of Japanese and English words though the chair was advertised by the Philippines for the first time.

SPOTLIGHT: Sweet vinyl by DREAMOUR

What happens when two immensely talented visionaries come together to create elegance and ingenuity in a sculptural glass fragranced candle? Dreamour. That is the long and short version of how Dreamour was created. Founded by Karissa Rowe and Neal Klotsman in late September 2022, Dreamour was founded with the goal of creating a luxury fragrance brand that operates at the intersection of functional art in the candle market space.

Rowe, a Parsons School of Design graduate, set out to fill the niche of integrating design in the candle marketplace. Unlike most candle vessels that are mass-produced, Dreamour’s founders desired to prioritize the artisanal craftsmanship of glass in their production processes of the sculptural glass designs. This resulted in a long timeline of sourcing the globe for talented glass artisans who could transform a sketch into a functional and sophisticated candle vessel. Each and every candle vessel is hand-blown, inherently resulting in a one-of-a-kind product and unique experience for the consumer. These functional fragrant candles also act as a piece of décor due to its sculptural and alluring appearance.

Sweet Vinyl, Dreamour’s first candle scent, fills the room with musky & leathery notes combined with earthy notes of vetiver and cypriol, topped with a citrus touch of bergamot and mandarin. The founders worked with master perfumers in Grasse, France, to create a scent that invoked notes of memorable moments, emphasizing high quality ingredients in the fragrances in a soy wax blend. This resulted in candles that consist of clean ingredients, a vegan formula, and is entirely cruelty-free.

It is the personification of the glass blowers’ spirit, the heart of Grasse imprisoned in a bottle, and the narrative of two visionaries that sets Dreamour at the top of the candle market pedestal. Dreamour embodies the sophistication and savior-faire French perfumery as a luxury brand, while being a NYC based brand. Dreamour is currently stocked at Patron of the New in New York, along with other major designer luxury known brands. Rowe and Klotsman are currently expanding their production lines and will drop new fragrances and designs in early 2023. Don’t expect anything ordinary with Dreamour, as they will continue to bring a unique perspective to the marketplace of home fragrances.
