Pot Chair

Another gem, which I picked up last year at the spring Our Showhome Midcentury.Modern fair, is an original Arne Jacobsen Pot chair. It's incredibly comfortable and had been a dream chair of mine for a long time.

I got it from The Modern Warehouse. They had a pair, and both had been reupholstered crudely in rather unplesant orange fabric so I knew I'd have to get it recovered. I contacted Fritz Hansen who are the official manufacturer of Arne Jacobsen's furniture, who put me in contact with their UK upholsterer and I arranged to have my chair covered in lovely dark grey Kvadrat wool felt.

Apologies for my poor photography, but... I love it, and am totally delighted with the end result. I feel very lucky to have it and make sure that I sit in it at least once a day... !
