Closer Looks: Poul Volther's Corona Chair and Ottoman

It’s safe to assume Paul Volther would have been a believer in the old adage, ‘when one door closes another one opens.’  The unveiling of his iconic Corona Chair and Ottoman in 1961 to his Danish audience was met with a disappointingly lukewarm welcome.  Although when presented in the United States, the response was overwhelmingly positive and the high demand turned Volther’s design into a classic icon of the modern period.

The beautifully unexpected Corona Chair was originally designed to be conducive to the human spine in a way allows comfort in any position.  This is why our Corona Chair Reproduction and Corona Ottoman Reproduction matches the original dimensions Volther intended.   Our reproduction uses superior materials Volther did not have available during his time, but that we do thanks to advances in technology since then.  This includes the stainless steel swivel base, High Resilient multi-density foam and molded fiber-reinforced polymer internal shell. 

Come visit us in our BellinghamChicago or Dallas Showrooms to see our Corona Chair Reproduction along with everything else we have to offer!
