Why we love this product

Similar to its Desk Chair counterpart

Seen here in a pink boiled wool upholstery finish, this stunning Armchair, like the other pieces in the Govan Collection, can be made with a bespoke wood finish, colour or fabric. Handcrafted in Scotland, the entire Govan Collection draws inspiration from the pared back utilitarian forms of the Glasgow's once celebrated industrial might. It is also clear to see in this Armchair that the collection is also inspired by David Watson's love for geometric shapes and form. This armchair has a solid arm compared to its Desk Chair counterpart.

What our customers say...

"I really like your website -I like its emphasis on the makers, on quality and on objects that seem a bit different and special ( I will definitely explore more!). And it was easy to contact you - and you replied - quickly! All rather marvellous!”
