With so much mediocre mid-century inspired design these days Brogue is only too happy to wax lyrical about the effortlessly relaxed Reuben armchair. Designed by Chris Eckersley for Arlo & Jacob this perfectly proportioned chair – available in solid natural oak or walnut hardwood with a choice of over 100 fabrics – is made to order in the UK by a dedicated craftsperson, with an attention to detail that defies the price tag. Shown here in Designers Guild Brera Lino Cobalt and Lino Lime fabrics.
