Alvar Aalto’s 41 Armchair with ideas on the side

41 Paimio Armchair by Alvar Aalto


The  41 Palmio Armchair by Alvar Aalto was designed in 1929.  The armchair seat and back are made of curved plywood.  The arms and base are laminated curved beech.  An amazing chair for any home can be bought through Anibou in Australia.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          



 I’ve decided to match this with the fantastic Alba Sideboard which draws its inspiration from mid-century plasterwork to create a sculptural piece.  It’s made from 100% FSC timbers and it’s available in a wide range of colours from Pinch Design                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                beatapendentlights                                                                                                                                                      


To soften the look, why not try this reminiscent of a bee’s hive looking Beata light.  The natural tones gives warmth as you flick the switch and watch the ambient tones.  Moody lighting on a winters night. Also can be found at Pinch Design

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!
