We could like to classify it in our category of ‘task chairs’ as it is willing to make our lives simpler and more efficient. This chic looking chair has pockets on two sides to hold your remotes, newspapers and all other knick-knacks that you need at an arm distance, without moving an inch.The saddle Chair has a wooden frame and Norwegian origin, designed collectively by Angell, Wyller and Aarseth. The pockets are an extension of the cushions and they drape on both sides of the chair. They actually resemble the saddlebags in a horse riding gear. These sleek and very useful pockets were created by adding an additional layer of material to the sections that were on the sides.


The covers can be chosen between leather and wool and they cover the back and the seat. This simple but extremely comfy chair is available in oak or ash wood. If you’re wondering what’s the big deal about this chair, the fact that the wooden frame and the upholstery are not connected manages to create an illusion of a sturdy chair that is also comfortable and welcoming due to its soft leather and wool. Slåke a well established name in furniture manufacturing is actually handcrafting these beauties in a small unit on the west cost of Norway. The whole concept of a chair that is handcrafted especially for you, is sure to excite many customers.

Do check out the piece in ash wood, which comes with upholstery in light colored leather, a favorite of the designers too.
