Little Petra lounge chair by Viggo Boesen for andtradition

The Little Petra was first introduced in 1938, and immediately garnered praise from the Danish Cabinetmakers' Guild and exhibitions in New York and Berlin. Its organic design, with a rounded form and abundant depth in its upholstery, was a direct challenge to the minimal aesthetic of the Bauhaus movement. The Little Petra lounge chair became an eminent example of the Funkis style, a movement born in Denmark in the 1930s.

As its name suggests, the Little Petra chair is smaller in size than conventional lounge chairs, allowing it to blend in well to classic and contmeporary interiors alike. The quality of materials, and ergonomic design, ensures the chair is as comfortable as possible. The wings on the seatback offer an embrace to the sitter, and offers a multitude of sitting positions.

Base available in solid white oiled oak or oiled walnut. Fully upholstered seat and seat back available in fabrics and sheepskin in the following collection:
Fabric group 2: Fiord, TonusHallingdal*
Fabric group 3: Sunniva, Vidar
