Ikea’s Karlstad retro armchair

Ikea_orange Looking at Ikea’s Karlstad retro armchair in the orange colour choice, you could be forgiven for thinking it was a design straight out of a late 60s home interiors catalogue.

It’s a large swivel armchair, very much in Bond villain territory, made from moulded, high-resilient polyurethane foam to create and maintain the rounded shape. It’s also adjustable via a lever under the seat and covered in a dirt-repellent wool fabric.

Designed by Henrik Preutz and also available in grey, you can pick one up in your local Ikea, priced at £245.
