Product Description

The Highback Siesta Classic Chair with Arms is a Scandiavian classic that will make you melt as soon as you sit. With this Norwegian easy chair design, plush leather cushions sit upon durable canvas. The canvas support provides just enough “give” to offer amazing comfort and support. The canvas is attached to the wood frame in a unique method that uses specialized rope. The curve of the Siesta Chair frame provides a slight reclining angle that makes you feel relaxed, but allows you to remain upright for visiting and reading.

Choose from a number of wood finishes. A number of high quality Scandinavian leathers are available. Please see the Specifications Tab for more detailed leather information. The optional Siesta Footstool is sold separately. It pairs with the Siesta Chair to create a comfortable lounging experience.

Available with a variety of different options. See all of the variations, as well as available parts for the chair & ottoman, in the Siesta Chair Collection.
