Happy Chair home are delighted to bring you a great example of the “Kroken” chair, designed by Ake Fribytter. This much lauded design from the 1970s pairs a bentwood beech frame with a canvas and leather hammock seat to create what is possibly the most comfortable lounge chair you will ever own.
The beech frame is constructed to create a cantilever, offering strength and flexibility, and is in lovely vintage condition; it has been thoroughly inspected and cleaned, but retains a lovely patina.
Cradled in the frame is the upholstery, comprising of strong, supple leather and tough canvas underside. The upholstery is also in lovely condition, with only some very minor marks to the back of the headrest, and the leather has been cleaned and nourished ready for the next owner.
On sitting in the chair for testing, Ben called it a ‘danger chair’, as once you are in it for the evening, you won’t want to get out!
This chair is a great find and will grace any room; a focal point for a lounge, or as a statement piece in a bedroom.
