eBay watch: Pierre Paulin Archi armchair for Ligne Roset


Back in August of last year, we mentioned that Ligne Roset was re-introducing a classic Pierre Paulin design from the 1950s – the Archi armchair. Well, it did re-appear, with prices varying from £1,400 to in excess of £2,000 depending on your choice of finish. Just as well one has appeared on eBay then.

Indeed, this particular chair os something of a steal. Used in a show home, so pretty much hardly used at all, it offers that classic design in a dark red finish (apparently darker than the picture indicates), the upholstery in a 'divina wool' felt fabric, with matt black metal legs for support.

The colour might not be to everyone's taste, but the price should be. Reduced for a quick sale to £650 on a 'Buy It Now' or taking offers.
