Grande Linnea Arm Chair

24 × 21 × 34 in

Linnea arm chair has the same seat size as the Fan arm chair. It's a contemporary interpretation of the Chippendale chair of the 18th century. The term Linnea is a Swedish name of a flower. Looking at the chair from almost any angle and you can see how the rear legs and splats of the chair open up as it rises, like that of a flower. The shape of the crest rail on the rear legs is classic Chippendale. The opening of the arms are like petals of a floral bloom.
