1930s Central European Reclining Armchair

About the Item

The unique design of this armchair gives it an intriguing and delightful personality. Made in Central Europe in the 1930s, the low-set seat hovers mere inches from the floor, the size of the cushions improbably large for the slender proportions of wooden frame. The backrest can be positioned at an upright or reclined angle thanks to an ingeniously simple mechanism: a metal bar, raised or lowered upon a series of hooks. The mechanical directness of this device lends the piece a playful industrial inflection. The choice of materials —the warm polish of the curved bentwood armrests and the soft white boucle of the upholstery —strikes the perfect balance between comfort and luxury.
