Petite Reader
The Petite Reader chair in Drift linen

Inspired by vintage armchair designs, Petite Reader takes design cues from wing back chairs that date as far back as the 17th century. Fitted with traditional curved cabriole legs, delicately curved short arms and a top-notch frame, it’s built to last. Ensuring optimum comfort for quiet little reading breaks, it comes with a soft feather seat and bolster cushion, fixed back, and fixed covers with delicate pleats and piped detailing. Add your own touch of character to this elegant accent chair. Choose from thousands of fabrics and leathers, in hundreds of colours and prints, or opt for a different cushion filling for a firmer feel. As the name suggests the proportions are perfectly petite, but if you’re looking for something a bit grander have a look at our Storyteller chair.
