Description

&Tradition’s Little Petra lounge chair and pouf charm with their compact size, flowing silhouette and soft sheepskin upholstery. The petite, friendly chair and pouf are a lovable example of the Danish funkis style of the 1930s.

Designed by the Danish architect Viggo Boesen and named after his mother-in-law, Little Petra was first introduced at Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1938. As only a small number of chairs was manufactured at the time, it became a sought-after piece only available at auctions. Nowadays Little Petra belongs to &Tradition's assortment and can be enjoyed by all design enthusiasts around the globe.

Viggo Boesen

Viggo Boesen was a Danish architect who had a great influence on the Danish functionalism of the 1930s and 1940s. The most essential elements in his work were the use of rattan and different upholsteries, that gave a light and organic touch for his furniture and other designs. One of his best known pieces is the awarded Fox lounge chair, which was made of rattan and released in 1936.
