While many of our pieces are designed after traditional movements, eras or the work of famed artisans, the Sofia Lounge Chair finds its inspiration in the complex pendentive joints used to support the massive dome at Istanbul’s Hagia Sofia. While considerably smaller in scale, the chair uses these intricate works of joinery at each corner to provide exceptional strength – and a dramatic aesthetic.

As in the ancient basilica, the Sofia Lounge Chair’s pendentive joints channel lateral forces, directing the weight of the chair and its occupant down, while preserving its uncompromising structural integrity. The eye is drawn along the swirling cherry or walnut patterns of its side panels to the darker, tapered corner joint framed between.
Ideal for any lounge, living room or sitting area, the Sofia Lounge Chair employs an upholstered, generously padded seat for comfort. The cushions can be covered in soft-grain leather or fabric, creating a vivid contrast with its hardwood panels that conjures traditional British Men’s Club chairs from the colonial era.
