Barnaby Armchair

by Sancal

Price On Application

The Barnaby Armchair is a fun, comfortable and distinctive armchair designed by Perrine & Gilles for Sancal. The design is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the practice of covering sofas and armchairs with a throw, common in homes on Spain's Mediterranean coast and student accommodation across the world. The designers turned this somewhat outdated practice into a work of art with an armchair as sculptural as it is comfortable, enveloped by a removable cover with colourful taping which emphasises its shape. As the cover is loose, it can be changed easily to create a new look, making this armchair both fun and versatile.

The Barnaby armchair can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics (except leathers and fabrics with stripes or patterns). The tape of the armchair must be selected from the Soul collection of fabrics. For more information on the available sizes, materials and finishes please refer to the Product Tech Sheet and the various Sancal Materials and Finishes Catalogues in the Features tab under Additional Information.

The Barnaby Armchair is part of the Gráfica Collection of stools, armchairs, sofas and tables.
