Concept

This is an armchair version of JK-07, which is without an armrest. Compared to JK-07, this chair is wider and deeper and has an impressive presence. While retaining classical style, it is designed to be functional and comfortable to sit on. Chairs of Jacob Kjaer have excellent designs made possible by his full knowledge of works and skills of a furniture maker. In addition, since plenty of luxurious materials including animal hair are used in upholstery, they can be made only by careful manual work.
