Designed for Case Furniture, the Corral armchair (along with its siblings, a footstool and two-seater sofa), is our response to the evolving nature of casual luxury.
The aim was to create a series of pieces that combined the quality and craftsmanship of fine furniture making with the comfort and indulgence of the beanbag.
The leather used is a heavyweight shrunken bull hide – soft and comfortable but solid and durable. The pinched seams are unturned to keep the edges visible, which contributes to Corral’s rustic, ranch-style look. Inside, four separate calico beanbags (accessed via a zip underneath) give the chair its structure and mould to fit the shape of the sitter.
