“Paris chair” by Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen designed this charismatic lounge chair in 1936 and showcased it for the first time at the Charlottenborg spring exhibition in 1937. The chair was originally named A.J 237 and was part of a series of original rattan chairs.

The curved shape, which later became very characteristic for Arne Jacobsen’s many famous chairs, is already suggested in this very early piece of furniture. The lounge chair has quite an unconventional shape, where the elegant curved rattan frame integrates the back seamlessly with the armrest at the bottom of the chair.

The frame of rattan is mounted with an upholstered cushion, available in a range of hardwearing fabric types. The elegant and comfortable chair will beautifully accessorize any modern type of sofa.
