Parallel Chair By Simon James

Parallel Chair

Simon James

The Parallel Chair celebrates its robust steel frame rather than concealing it in the upholstery. This is offset with the warmth and character of solid oak arms. The seating is a combination of feather and foam to give a superior soft comfort. Designed to work well in numbers or as a stand-alone chair. Available in a firmer density foam for the office and breakout area.

This product is available from our Upper Queen Street furniture and lighting showroom
