Chair design the Nordic way – pick the perfect chairs for your life and style

Oh, chairs! It's hard to get enough of them if you're a true design enthusiast. Besides its obvious functional use, a well-made designer chair provides you with so many enjoyable little details that we don't know where to start with. It's the combination of function, form and feeling that makes some chairs just truly special. You might sense it already when you see the chair, but when you sit on it, you just know it. No matter if it is a generous armchair, a practical dining chair, a sturdy bench, sleek bar chair or a simple stool, a high-quality designer chair instantly feels like a lifelong companion.

If you're looking for your new favourite chair, you've come to the right place! Our chair collection is filled with true gems of Scandinavian and Finnish furniture design, ranging from treasured mid-century classics by Charles & Ray Eames, Eero Aarnio and Alvar Aalto to awarded chair designs by contemporary Nordic designers, such as Hee Welling, Sami Kallio and Iskos-Berlin. In terms of materials, colours and chair types, there's an abundant selection to choose from. The most common materials of our chairs include wood and metal in a range of finishes, but you can also opt for a rattan chair, plastic chair, webbing chair, or an upholstered chair in fabric, leather or sheepskin. Our chair collection also includes office chairs, rocking chairs, bean bag chairs as well as poufs and ottomans.
