This piece was created with the intention to incorporate soft lines that had an inviting presence. An obvious focus of attention was comfort where the user feels enveloped by the chair but is able to shift their position easily. The oak frame has a hand woven new wool fabric by Mourne Textiles produced in Northern Ireland. The walnut frame also has a new wool fabric, designed by Eleanor Pritchard Studio which is produced in Scotland. Bespoke fabrics are available on request.
