Sophia's Arm Chair

From $3,300
Our interpretation of the oldest recorded chair form, the Klismos chair, found on ancient Greek pottery and art. Named after Charlie and Miranda’s daughter, but also Greek for ‘wisdom’, the Sophia Chair features a curved backrest and subtly tapered legs. The arms end in a rounded, sinuous version of our hand-carved curl.
