Sitting Pretty: A newsletter about chairs, design, and other things.

Hi, my name is Tyler Watamanuk and I’m a writer based out of New York’s Hudson River Valley. Sitting Pretty is a newsletter I run that covers a wide range of design-centric topics: Frank Ocean’s $150,000 sofa, an underrated Richard Neutra house, musings on the best mid-century daybeds. No topic is too niche. (A while back, I wrote a column on accent chairs with the same name for Garage Magazine.)

In addition to this newsletter, I am a contributing writer for GQ and am working on a book about the rise of streetwear for Simon & Schuster.

You can follow me on Instagram and on Twitter, but subscribe to Sitting Pretty and get the goods delivered straight to your inbox. It is sent on the second and last Thursday of the month, with some occasional surprises sent out in-between.
