The Papa Bear Chair stands as the archetype for a comfortable easy chair. A solid and strong wooden frame with impeccable upholstery work.

A number of different materials with unique properties are used to build up the shape. Plant fibres constitute the basic profile of the sides of the chair where sturdiness is crucial while coil springs are sewn onto jute straps in the back to provide flexible support. The inside of the frame is covered with horsehair and cotton. Finally, the ergonomic shape of the back is carefully adjusted by tightening the buttons. 

With this kind of genuine upholstery you will have a chair that will wear in rather than wear out. This chair will be softer and even more comfortable with use.
