This rare wingback chair was designed by Arne Färnrot and produced in Sweden in the late 1940s. The elegant organic lines of the design create a striking silhouette. Its generous proportions and the high back make this a sumptous and very comfortable armchair. The chair is upholstered in a blue wool fabric, with a buttoned back and fully sprung seat. The legs are made of solid mahogany.
