1930s Paimio Chair by Alvar Aalto

Paimio

It might not be the most comfortable chair you’ll ever sit in, but the Paimio Chair by Alvar Aalto is one of the more stylish pieces of seating you’ll encounter.

Amazingly, the Paimio Chair (also known as Chair 41) dates from 1931 and equally amazingly, it’s made of all wood – a natural lacquered birch frame and a seat made of bent birch plywood in black or white.

If looks mean more than comfort, this can be yours via Artek for £1,848.
