Michael Heltzer Towel Back Chaise

Heltzer Chicago-based furniture designer Michael Heltzer premiered his Titanium line, which includes this great lounge chair for the summer (or year-round if you live five hours south -- by plane -- from Chicago). The chair looks like any other well-designed chaise, but this has a roll-away towel attached to the backside to retract or roll down onto the chair. I like this because it solves the problem of having your towel constantly falling down whenever you move to grab your water bottle, reapply your suntan lotion or get up to jump into the pool when you get too hot. This clever design always keeps your towel (made from eucalyptus-based, earth-friendly cotton) in place and moves it out of the way whenever you don't need it, which is never as long as you're on the lounge. The towel is removable for easy cleaning or replacing and the overall design is clean, sleek and sexy -- perfect for lounging by the pool. The titanium chairs come with blue silicone-filled gel cushions that either be made more cush or firm, depending on how lax you want to be.

Heltzer pieces are only sold through interior designers and architects, but you can find out how to get them here.

Why do they do that, I wonder. Do you know? Sell their pieces only through specific designers and architects, that is.

Wow that Chaise would be so comfortable to lounge in after a long day's work. It gives you utmost relaxation and eliminates the hassle of having a towel fall down on the floor. I love it!
