Flaunting a new feel for life

"With Sahara my inspiration was the African lodge life, a scent of steppe, canvas, wild animals, adventures and challenges. A life in the wild nature. " The latest product by Gunilla Allard for Lammhults is an easy chair/sofa that brings elegance and luxu
ry to Lammhults collection of seating furniture. Sahara has a steel frame and cushions in seat and back. The most characteristic expression lies in the shape and the construction of the arms. The combination between metal and wood creates an exquisite mee
ting, sharp as a razor. "It is like a jewel" says designer Gunilla Allard, comparing the way in which the beauty of the wood adorns its metal mount. The gentle S-curve, lower in back and raised in front, is an organic welcome to the eye and to the touch,
extending in such a way as to offer a sure grip.
The arms constitute the key to the construction and are used both for the easy chair and the sofas. The steel tubing is mounted on the arms.
The arms are available in walnut and black stained ash. Saha
ra is presented as an easy chair, a 2-seat-sofa and a 3-seat-sofa. Bold vertical saddle-stitching, every 30 cm, creates a strong visual expression in the upholstery.
Light and airy, Sahara recalls Scandinavian design with Gunilla Allards distinct
touch of the twenty-first century design expression.
