This page brings together some of the most exceptional armchairs in the history of Scandinavian design. It includes a number of uncompromising pieces that aim for a kind of ideal of comfort and relaxation, with no concern for economy of space, craftsmanship or the quality of materials. 

One example is the extraordinary Flag Halyard Chair by Danish designer Hans Wegner, which manages the feat of embodying both modernity and minimalism through its stainless aluminium structure, and a kind of wild primitivism through the exaltation of the raw beauty of long-haired animal skin.

We are also reminded of the graceful, ergonomic curves of Swedish designer and architect Bruno Mathsson, the powerful and bold experiments of Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, who translated the metallic experiments of the Bauhaus into warm Nordic birch, and the synthetic abstractions of the famous American couple Charles and Ray Eames.

Alongside this particular and demanding typography of the chaise longue, you'll find a category that's both familiar and ultimately uncommon, more often seen in American films than in European cinema: the rocking chair, with its procession of richly imagined scenes by the fireside or in the refreshing breeze of a veranda.
