"Gothic Arch" Armchair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I have not been able to identify this throne-like chair, but it is stylish, and almost certainly artisan-made. Reasonably comfortable, though it's much better with a few pillows. The generous size of the seat means that there is quite enough room for a nice collection of adventurously-covered pillows.
