Parker Knoll chairLate Deco armchair by Parker-Knoll, in production fron the late 30s to early 50s.

This proto-type has been retro fitted with a custom designed moulded foam cushion that, unfortunately, pushes the price up a bit. We're still examining our options for a more cost effective finish for future examples. The prototype is available for $1200.
