Dandy

The Steve McQueen of easy chairs

Dandy combines a 60s feeling for materials with a timeless enjoyment of life. Influences include classical handbags by Palmgrens and Steve McQueen. With its casual elegance, Dandy is an interpretation of the movie star, whose nonchalant attitude and leather racing gloves made him a style icon for an entire generation.

A quick-change artist

The soft seat cushion is filled with horsehair and comes in several versions. Either a completely leather variant in brown or black from Tärnsjö Garveri. Or you can choose one side in a herringbone fabric. The latter allows you to change the look of the chair with a quick flip. Leather side up makes an elegant impression; fabric side up shows more of a 60s aesthetic.

A cool, inviting profile

The front legs appear from the side to be round, but from straight on you see a different silhouette. The inner sides are worked to create a taper and the angle provides a sense of stillness and calm. While some furniture looks like it is on the run, Dandy’s legs offer an impression of an easy chair at rest. A small yet crucial detail when you really want to relax.

A balancing act

The adjustable headrest is held in place by a brass weight. As a reminder of its purpose, it is shaped as a dumbbell. Thanks to its careful balance, it holds the headrest exactly where you want it, while also making the easy chair’s back something worth seeing.

A complete getaway

The footstool is an extension of the actual easy chair. Its shape, similar to a potato chip, gets its lines from the curved back. At the same time, rattan spans the hollow across the footstool’s middle. Both feet and calves rest comfortably on the rattan, without coming into contact with the frame.

For relaxation or connection

Dandy is equally suitable in a hotel lobby or a living room. A lovely oasis where you can let your thoughts wander or binge an entire season of your favourite series. The ample space lets you sit as you want or share with someone you like. The shapes are organic in a way reminiscent of an enlarged Rococo easy chair. And light filtering through the rattan creates an artwork of shadows on the wall.

»An idea can arise when two materials come together. I place great importance on details and like to develop ideas from them. Details give furniture character.«
