The Elephant Dining Chair is a dining chair version of the popular Elephant Lounge Chair.
The legs are shared with the proven NY11 Dining Chair while the seat and back are pressed in the same soft curve as the Elephant Lounge Chair. The result is a light and elegant dining chair where the Elephant ear shaped back gently curves around the body.
Elephant Dining is produced with solid oak legs, with back and seat in laminated oak veneer. The seat and the back are upholstered in leather and textile of highest quality, and the refined 25 mm foam blend provides superior comfort. The upholstery gives the chair a solid look, which is contrasted by the slim contour of the veneer edge. “Elegant, simple but sturdy without being clumsy”.
