Theo Ruth Model 135 lounge chair Artifort 1956





Theo Ruth’s Model 135 lounge chair, designed for Artifort in 1956, is a classic and elegant piece of furniture. With its clean lines and sleek silhouette it’s the perfect example of 1950s modernism in Holland. The chair features black metal feet that not only provide stability but also add a touch of modernity to its overall design. These sturdy feet complement the chair’s aesthetics while ensuring durability and longevity. Upholstered with snow white Alpaca wool, the chair offers a luxurious and inviting seating experience.

The snowy white hue adds a sense of purity and sophistication to the chair, making it a striking focal point in any room.


Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the chair is designed with comfort in mind. Its well-proportioned seat and backrest provide optimal support, allowing you to relax and unwind in style. The ergonomic design ensures that you can enjoy extended periods of seating without discomfort. As a timeless piece of design, the Theo Ruth Model 135 lounge chair is a testament to the enduring quality and craftsmanship of Artifort. Its clean lines, black metal feet, and sumptuous Alpaca wool upholstery combine to create a stunning and comfortable seating option that will enhance the ambiance of any living space.
