Why we love this product

A regal shape that simmers up faint images of jousting knights. 

The Helm chair is named after its shape which reminds us of helmets and armour used by jousting knights from British Medieval history. It’s beautiful curved back gives it a gorgeous shape from all sides and angles.

The high, straight back makes it a more formal and occasional chair, lending to its historical and noble connotations. The neutral tones of the fabric add to this and makes it a chair that can sit in any bedroom, study or hall. Nevertheless, if desired, it can be made into a focal piece of any room when jazzed up with a loud or vivid fabric.
