The Parallel Lounge Chair celebrates its robust steel frame rather than concealing it in the upholstery. The black steel frame is offset with the warmth and character of solid natural oak arms. The upholstered seat and back inner is made from a combination of feather and foam to give a superior soft comfort. Designed to work well in numbers or as a stand-alone chair. Available in a firmer density foam for the office and breakout area.
Made in New Zealand.

Made to Order
We work slightly differently to some other retailers where most of our upholstered items are made to order, this way we can produce a product that is unique to you. This process starts with understanding your requirements and our consultants offering furniture solutions that are best suited to you. In terms of fabric there are many possibilities outside of what you just see on this site and we are happy to discuss what will work best for you and your environment.
We strive to keep a selection of our best sellers from the import brands we work with in stock, but to keep this range diverse we aren’t able to hold all items in stock, so a number of our imported items will have lead time out of Europe. We can provide further lead time information during the time of enquiring as this can vary depending on the time of the year.
