you are invited to sit and unwind

discover Comet

Comet invites you to sit and unwind. Rest back into the contoured trim of its appealing mid back and along the designer curves of its integrated arms. Swivel any direction you would like. Forget boredom as you rock back and forth. Gently relax with its swaying motion. Comet utilizes Via Seating lounge’s swivel, rock & swivel or rock, swivel & sway mechanisms to deliver a motion-lounge experience you control. Discover more options by applying different upholstery to its seat and back. Comet—this is lounge the way it should be.
