Wilford Velvet Armchair, Midnight Blue

Delivery and returns

When not building empires, fighting wars or modernising the economy as Emperor of the French, Napoleon III would, inevitably, need time to relax. Naturally, as the head of state, this repose was conducted exclusively in the most resplendent of armchairs. Our Wilford Velvet Armchair in Midnight Blue takes its cue then from just such 19th-century works of craftsmanship, their generous and wide proportions making them as sublimely comfortable as they are aesthetically pleasing. Handcrafted in England from sustainably sourced (FSC) solid beech or birch, they may be inspired by Napoleon’s 19th-century collection, but there is no requirement for a courtly setting when it comes to the uncluttered design of this chair; the midnight blue, paired with a brass side table, would work beautifully in a chic urban apartment. Note the beautifully considered details, from the legs in a refined black finish to the arms, which feature a subtle roll on the outside, and curvature to the top and front to make them transcendently comfortable. Also available in a Mineral Grey linen finish. 

Dimensions: Height 94cm, Width 75cm, Depth 84cm.
