The Big Chair

The Big Chair

A big, comfy chair for one – a place to think, read, plan or just curl up for a nap. Based on a deep-seated 19th Century English chair, our big solitaire chair has a relaxing raked back with a deep seat. It’s just the place to settle down and relax. Perfect in plain linen, but also fantastic in a patterned fabric of your choice. Our Salon stool works as a suitable footrest.
