Ernest Race BA3 1940s armchair

Ba3

We've covered the work of Ernest Race in the past, notably the Clarissa Hulse Race Rocker and the Margaret Howell Race Heron chair. But here's something that's more faithful to the designer's original work – the Ernest Race BA3 armchair.

Like many of the Ernest Race designs, this is style conjured up from limited resources, indeed, designed in 1945, the BA3 was produced when both wood and metal were in seriously short supply. However, Race still produced an award-winning seat from die-cast aluminium and oak, with some vinyl thrown in for comfort.

Available once more, you can buy one from £467.
