Little Petra sheepskin sahara

Architect and designer Viggo Boesen first introduced the lounge chair Little Petra in 1938 as part of the exhibition `Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition`. This was followed by other international exhibitions and prizes, although only 30 pieces were manufactured. Little Petra convinces in a compact size with a special shape. Like a kind of negative mold, the backrest of the Little Petra lounge armchair recreates the anatomical silhouette of the sitter. Thanks to this intimacy, the lounge chair Little Petra feels particularly comfortable and playfully outshines large voluminous wingback chairs.

The lounge chair Little Petra is named after Boesens mother-in-law and the fact that this cocktail chair with a total height of just 75 centimeters seems to be relatively small. Nevertheless, Little Petra does not compromise on comfort and not only proves to be particularly comfortable but also extremely versatile in the choice of seating position.

Deep on the floor, open and ‘hugging’, Little Petra in Sahara brown colour embodies the essence of a lounge chair, allowing for all kinds of seating in every conceivable environment: lobby, lounge, living room, club, maid, nursery, bedroom, hallway, office. “A lot of work has been done to ensure maximum comfort, from the seat to the upholstery,” emphasizes the manufacturer in 2018, when Little Petra was reborn. In 2020 the Little Petra armchair was launched in this warm Sahara brown colour. The use of natural materials has also been emphasized: the legs of the chair are made of oak or walnut and are reminiscent of Viggo Boesens love for natural materials.

Especially the version with sheepskin, here in Sahara brown, supports this idea and is characterized by special features. For one thing, real sheepskin is particularly sturdy and hard-wearing. On the other hand, Litte Petra with sheepskin is characterized by its moisture-regulating and insulating properties, which make it cuddly warm and comfortable. „Litte Petra in Sahara brown from &tradition is a lounge chair, which has what it takes to be a favorite spot“, the TAGWERC furnishing experts are really convinced.
