“Farmor” Swedish Armchairs by Carl Malmsten

Regular price $2,500.00

This  arm chair’s name relates to the design’s utmost comfort, that is exuded through the friendly and round shapes, femininity and cosiness. The pair’s frames are made of solid pine from Swedish forests to provide a sturdy base. The high-backs have an unmistakeable “crown” on top of them, that complements the armrests’ outward curling lines. The sitting comfort of this model is quite famous, the seat and the springs together, create extreme comfort. The plump seats and button tufting further add to the warm feeling of the design, while keeping it stylish and modern.

Carl Malmsten wanted these Farmor or Grandmother armchairs to express a particular feeling of warmth and comfort with the friendly and rounded forms. The femininity and the impression of homecoming that is often associated with the word ‘grandma’ is apparent in the design, which is undoubtedly why this model has been continuously beloved for the past six decades.
