Expanded Seating Collection

Encore has expanded its acclaimed Mayland seating collection with the addition of wood frame options. Designed by the duo Andrew Gower and Paul Woolf Boettiger of Gower + Woolf, this extension further enhances the product series’ adaptability and appeal across a myriad of environments.

Building upon the success of the original metal frame guest and lounge seating collection, the addition of a wood frame brings a new dimension to Mayland’s offering. Each piece in the product family reflects elegance and flair, making it a solid choice for diverse settings ranging from corporate offices and healthcare facilities to educational institutions and hospitality venues.

The exposed wood frame design follows the curve of the seat and back, offering an attractive aesthetic from every angle. Characterized by fluid curves and layered components as well as a tapered back and arms, the chairs also boast oversized plush cushions that invite users to sink into unparalleled comfort.

Beyond aesthetics, Mayland offers versatility in application. While both guest and lounge models cater to similar markets such as higher education, healthcare, corporate, and hospitality, they serve distinct purposes. Lounge seating is ideal for longer stays and casual interactions, while guest seating excels in dining halls, waiting rooms, meeting spaces, or as ancillary seating when paired with larger modular pieces.
