Are you sitting comfortably?

Friday, 7 January 2011

Once described as the most comfortable chair in the world, the Häggbom armchair was designed for and in collaboration with architect Sven Häggbom in 1943 by Carl Malmsten.  Malmsten devoted his life to the renewal of traditional Swedish craftsmanship, inspired by the cultural examples of the Swedish country manor and rustic styles – furniture endowed with a creative simplicity, with a feeling for the wood itself, with function in mind and a high technical quality.


And it just so happens that chairsmith has a tired old wingback chair that's been patiently awaiting a makeover ............ mmmmmmh, we might, just might, try and recreate this Häggbom look.  We'll keep you posted!
