Description

The accomplished Grete Jalk has created one of her most iconic designs with this pair of refined armchairs. This sleek offering had our hearts racing at first glance. There are so many sculptural elements and subtle details, it's hard to know where to start.

The first trap for modernist furniture lovers is the luscious backrest struts, enabling the chairs to be enjoyed from any angle. Generous sculpted armrests and cigar shaped legs frame crisp box cushions – we're in love.
