Flock of Chairs Collection: Easy chair
These sleek and cuddly chairs invite you to blissfully sink in. The use of honest materials form an integral part of this. The woolen seat provides a natural comfort and is made of small leftover pieces of sheepskin patched together. The use of waste pieces of sheepskin for the upholstery of this chair gives it a new life. Each chair has a different coat and is therefore unique in colour and appearance, as every animal in the flock is also unique. The appearance of the coat can vary from long to short hair and straight to curly. The colours vary from white or cream, to brown, gray or black. The frame is madeof different types of native wood: a mixture of elm, apple, and oak. This woollen seat provides a natural warm and comfortable experience. All items of Flock of Chairs Collection are one-offs. Availability, prices and commissions upon request.
