Samuelson Furniture introduced a new kind of seat to the market: the Smart chair.

Crafted in antiqued leather with top-stitched seams, curvaceous arms and high back wings, this seat addresses the dilemma of not having a place to plug-in while taking a seat by adding a charging port located inside of the chair’s arm.

The “smart” component of the chair does not stop at the data port—the seat is programmed with Bluetooth sound technology that will give users a way to unwind and listen to music or a podcast while spending time in guestrooms and public spaces. Sound is transmitted upward through the Smart chair using directional sound resonation rather than a conventional speaker system.
