Little Petra Limited Edition

Architect and designer Viggo Boesen first presented the Little Petra lounge chair in 1938 at the ‘Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition’. Further international exhibitions and awards followed, although only 30 pieces were produced at that time. Little Petra convinces with a special shape despite its compact size. Like a kind of negative form, the backrest of the Little Petra lounge chair reproduces the anatomical silhouette of the person sitting on it. Thanks to this embeddedness, the Little Petra lounge armchair feels particularly cosy and comfortable and playfully outshines large, voluminous wing chairs.

The sheepskin version in particular supports this idea and is characterised by special features. On the one hand, real fur is particularly robust and hard-wearing. On the other hand, Litte Petra covered with sheepskin is characterised by its moisture-regulating and insulating properties, which make it cosy and warm.

Low to the ground, open and `hugging`, Little Petra embodies the essence of a lounge chair and allows all kinds of seating positions in every conceivable environment: lobby, lounge, living room, club, gents, nursing room, children’s room, bedroom, hallway, office. “A lot of work has gone into ensuring the greatest possible comfort, from the seat to the upholstery,” stresses the manufacturer, who breathed new life into Little Petra in 2018. Now, shortly before the 85th anniversary of this extraordinary piece of seating furniture, the Little Petra lounge chair is available in this particularly noble version in a limited edition with brass foot cuffs.

Little Petra Limited Edition by &tradition – for the interior design experts at TAGWERC, a lounge armchair that can quickly become a favourite place to sit.
