IN RETROSPECT, we wonder why we didn't think of this before. Every September, we endure aching feet and groaning hamstrings from walking the Casual Market in Chicago. Meanwhile, we're surrounded by the most comfortable furniture in the world, and comfort is one of the most important selling points. Bingo. Here are the most comfortable, nap-worthy chairs we enjoyed testing in Chicago.
Designed by Klaus Kummer for Terra Furniture, the Havana modular upholstered deep seating collection maintains the aesthetic values, rational function and ergonomics of the Scandinavian design tradition. Havana is engineered with tubular aluminum frames, carefully molded anti-microbial QuickDryFoam and available in more than 200 Sunbrella fabrics for durability and easy cleaning.
Sophisticated styling defines the Erwin and Sons' Four Seasons Collection, a transitional deepseating group featuring rich, multihued braiding over an elegant, curvaceous frame. Plush Leisureluxe cushions are available in more than 200 fabrics from Sunbrella and Outdura.
Meadowcraft's ultra-plush Athens swivel rocker features a fully welded wroughtiron frame and pillowy cushions available in 80 fabrics, all of which target on-trend color families.
New this year from The HammockSource, Pillowtop hammocks are constructed of firm, interwoven poly-filled pillows, which provide lumbar uplift even as they enhance cushiony hammock comfort. The Rio Birch Stripe pattern comes in cottonysoft, all-weather DuraCord fabric and with South American cumaru-wood spreader bars.

O.W. Lee's new Monterra Swivel Rocker club chair earned a deserved reputation as one of the most comfortable chairs at the Casual Market. The chair features a wrought-iron frame and oversize cushions with arm pads.
The Charleston high-back swivel rocker from NorthCape International offers a high-back design for added neck support, an easy-glide swivel/ rocker mechanism, deep seating and wide-arm design for maximum comfort. The aluminum frame is powder-coated with a UV-resistant resin espresso finish.
