Why you'll love this Armchair

The Armchair 42 is a sculptural beauty of a chair designed by master craftsman Alvar Aalto for Finnish design brand Artek. Designed in 1932 it looks as modern now as it did at the time of its original release thanks to its contemporary, unconventional form. Defying the principle of straight, linear lines the laminated birch frame has a cantilevered shape and supports an elegant, curved seat made out of moulded plywood. The fluidity of the curves gives it a light, airy appeal, almost as though the chair is hovering mid-air. The exquisite shape not only serves aesthetic purposes but also offers endless comfort- Armchair 42 is a great choice for a relaxing reading or lounge chair! Available in black or white with a high-shine lacquer finish it will sit seamlessly in any room of the home, adding timeless, Scandinavian beauty to your interior.
