Stance Healthcare Evolves Valet Lounge Chair Collection with New Wood and Swivel Star Bases
Popular series is ideal for general healthcare and Behavioral Health settings
Stance Healthcare, a furniture designer and manufacturer specializing in general healthcare and Behavioral Health settings, announces two new bases – wood and swivel star – now available for the lounge series, Valet. The series offers soft design lines that invite patients and visitors to sit in comfort. First released in 2021, the collection creates a space of respite in any healthcare environment. The recent addition of the two new base options expands the already-versatile collection’s flexibility to suit different applications, including smaller medical offices and other boutique settings.
The new wood base adds a sense of warmth in addition to reliable durability and a classically modern look from the ground up. This base is offered in an array of finishes to fit any fabric option – including Stance’s newest finish colors, Aria, White Chocolate, Dolce Vita, and Palomino.
The swivel star base allows for more range of movement without sacrificing strength and stability. Offered in a polished aluminum finish, this versatile new base design can be customized with a variety of fabrics that leave plenty of room for custom design possibilities — from the simple and understated to the curated fabric collection developed in collaboration with CF Stinson.
Boasting an eye-catching, mid-century modern flair, Valet is just as pleasant to use as it is to view, with exceptional “sink-in” comfort and arms designed for stable, easy egress. Its chair is available in either low-back, for places of impact, such as healthcare lobbies; or high-back, which creates an acoustical buffer for therapeutic areas where quiet conversation and consultation may be needed.
The Valet series is offered in two separate categories, with one product group ideal for general healthcare environments and a second designed specifically for Behavioral Health. The general healthcare collection offers eight lounge chairs, with options including high-back and swivel bases, as well as a wider option to accommodate two users. Valet for Behavioral Health includes two lounge chairs offered in a BH-grade, highly durable base.
“I love the Valet chair in particular for the way it truly encourages comfort, while creating more private space for the user,” said Suzanne Fawley, Stance Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Interior Designer. “This collection adds durability with style to spaces that are in most cases predictably designed – and the two new bases will take this already-great collection even further.”
The new release supports Stance’s signature design philosophy, which aims to improve the healthcare experience for patients, visitors, and care providers through comfortable, beautiful, long-lasting and easy-to-clean products. The company has demonstrated leadership particularly in Behavioral Health design in recent years, most recently taking home HCD’s 2021 Nightingale GOLD Award for its Flo Dining Collection for Behavioral Health and continuing to introduce durable, yet comfortable designs that encourage healing in high-use settings.
Stance’s growing collection of general and Behavioral Health products, including Valet, can be experienced in person at the company’s new showroom and design collaborative located in Charlotte, N.C., by appointment only.
