This antique chair is a little gem. Newly upholstered in an organic hand, block-printed French-Indian cotton fabric (indigo against soft white) from Les Indiennes. The antique frame was painted in a soft Swedish grey, with an aged finish that gives this piece an authentic patina. A truly unique piece that is both strong and sturdy. Perfect as an accent piece or desk chair.
