Custom Arflex Jim Chair with Martyn Thompson Studio Splat Upholstery


Named after the famous French movie by Francois Truffaut, Jules & Jim are two easy chairs with a high degree of seating comfort. Though different in size they share a round geometry, which make them easy to use and place in an architectural context, where maybe more square seating typologies are difficult to use. The legs in wood and metal are also easy to customize in various finishes, so that Jules & Jim can be matched to fit any furnishing context. Available in stock upholstered with Martyn Thompson Studio Lilac Splat fabric from the Abstract Expressionist Collection and Maharam Aria Sequin. Please inquire directly for additional finishes and fabric options. Molded polyurethane/ polyester slipcover, metal base in lacquered black metal with chocolate timber. Fine jacquard tapestry, 100% cotton.
