Design by René Holten, 2011. By Artifort. Though the distinctive profile of Artifort's Shark Chair may bear a slight resemblance to its namesake, this inviting chair is extremely comfortable … and not at all frightening. Well padded with extra back support, the sturdy Shark Chair is delightful for long evenings around the table. The Shark Chair, Sledge Base is available with a polished chrome or pearl chrome finish. The chair gets its shape from a steel insert frame and a wooden seat that is then foam covered and upholstered. Select from an extensive palette of hundreds of fabric and leather options to complement your modern living space.
