Francis Easy Chair with Walnut Frame and Wool Upholstery

$4,000per item


Phloem Studio Francis easy chair is a modern contemporary oversized easy chair with a exposed solid walnut hardwood frame with an upholstered shell seat and back, with wool upholstery. The frames are handcrafted in walnut, maple or black. Wool upholstery is available in Maharam's Divina Line. The Francis easy chair has a 17" seat height and is more upright than a lounge chair. Perfect for living spaces or commercial spaces, this chair makes a statement in a lobby, office, or cafe.    Taking inspiration from river estuaries and smoothed over rocks, the solid wood frame is fluid with curves, round overs and scallops, with its limbs congregating tightly in the chair profile, spinning outward, joined together with solid wood laminations that hug both the upholstered seat and backrest. Francis is well suited for a short sit in a hotel lobby or café; but its generous proportions allow for a long stay with a laptop in office lounges or living rooms. It was designed without arms for those preferring to sit cross legged or to lounge creatively. Each Francis chair has exposed solid wood laminations that hug the seat and backrest, made using methods from boatbuilding processes. The skill required to make the frames is that of a master craftsperson. The smooth rounded over shapes are very tactile and beg the sitter to touch and caress while relaxing.

Customization Options

Hardwood frames available in maple, walnut, or black. Wool upholstery available in Maharam's Divina line.

About The Maker

PHLOEM STUDIO is a small furniture design studio based in the Pacific Northwest, founded by designer/craftsperson Benjamin Klebba. PHLOEM creates timeless modern furniture with an emphasis on natural materials, traditional joinery, and graceful proportions. Benjamin grew up in the Great Lake state of Michigan in the woods across the street from Lake Huron. His father built the house he grew up in, the furniture inside it and sailboats their family would sail on Lake Huron. This left a lasting impression. After college, Ben moved to Chicago, first apprenticing for a luthier building acoustic guitars, then working for a furniture maker. Eventually moving to Portland, OR, PHLOEM STUDIO was formed. Now based in the Columbia River Gorge, a national scenic area about 45 minutes outside of Portland, Ben’s dad Ron now works for PHLOEM STUDIO. Working with his father and a small team of craftspeople and collaborators, each piece of furniture is built custom to order. PHLOEM STUDIO has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Dwell, New York Magazine, Monocle and others. PHLOEM has debuted new designs at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, West Edge, and the American Craft Council Show. Select clients include Dropbox, Nike, HBO, and AirBnb.
