LEYA WINGBACK CHAIR By Freifrau
Tufted armchair with armrests
Sensuous comfort: Sometimes, we all need a little comfort: and that’s where the new Leya Wingback Chair comes into play, also available as a wing chair. With Leya, the designers Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss, have created a place to sit with a glass of wine of an evening and just let the time drift by – with a matching stool to make things more comfortable. While the soft interior upholstery makes sitting into an sensuous experience, with its premium look, Leya will soon be your favourite piece of furniture; it looks especially fetching in dark leather – whether as a single or double piece.
At the beginning, there was a very simple chair – without armrests, but with an ingenious idea. Why not take a modern minimalist form, but combine it with extra-soft upholstery? The result was a compact, almost delicate chair that is far more comfortable than its clear, pure lines might suggest at first sight: Leya. Rewarded with astonishing success, the designers have since successively applied the same concept to various other types of seating - the Leya family now consists of more than twenty variants, from models with armrests through to lounge chairs and bar stools and the Leya wingback couch with its lavish Chesterfield upholstery.
