Coalesse furniture set the stage for some big-name speakers at the recent Unique Lives & Experiences lecture series in Toronto. Following our theme of solutions that encourage social connection, our furniture helped facilitate the conversations led by Arianna Huffington and Piper Kerman, among others.

The Bob lounge chairs used for Arianna Huffington put her in a comfortable setting while fostering lively conversation. Diekman accent tables are placed next to the podium to provide an attractive and convenient place for Huffington to set a glass of water.

In the setting for speaker Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, the color and movement of the Emu Re-Trouvé chair and Emu Heaven pouf is a stark contrast against the fullness of the Circa sofa. The result is an eye-catching setting that invites you sit and stay a while. The use of vibrant orange color drew interest to the stage while giving a nod to Kerman's book.
