The Flag Halyard Chair Combines Rustic With Elegant Characteristics
The Flag Halyard Chair is almost always remembered as a tough, industrial-looking piece, yet its casual and expressive look is just what sets it apart from any rustic and conventional look. One of the secrets of its style is the presence of details such as sheepskin and pillows, which give it a touch of elegance and comfort. The frame of the chair takes advantage of the properties of stainless steel to provide a wide and cozy seat. Its shape is similar to a wheelbarrow, capable of accepting the weight and shape of the body widely.
There are more than eight hundred feet of flag line that covers the chair and makes up the fabric of its seat and back. To protect the floor from scratches, the designer made sure to add angled legs resting on large feet that could visually anchor the shape. The contrast of the soft long-haired sheepskin with the reflective, cold and hard stainless steel creates an effect that is pleasing to the eye and gives it that touch of originality and class characteristic of the great works of Mid-Century Modern style.
Although the great Danish creator never gave up in the search for the perfect chair and was never completely satisfied with his creations because he always sought to generate better designs, at least he knew how to identify when a job was finished. This led him to leave a legacy of more than five hundred chairs and other pieces throughout his career. Currently, the piece is so popular that there are products on the market such as the Flag Halyard Chair replica by Manhattan Home Design, a Flag Halyard Chair reproduction whose characteristics faithfully emulate those of the original design.
