Auction ending in 2 days: a rare “Rock’n-Rest”, highback lounge chair, designed in Norway and produced by the Gimson & Slater Ltd, United Kingdom. Adjustable rocking seat and back can be locked in 8 different positions by means of a handle.
I love this chair! Thanks for sharing!
this chair looks so comfortable! i saw some other modern and hip chairs on the chd website!
It looks like an innovative alternative to a recliner. The clean design also makes this a great fit for most modern homes.
Just came across your blog, and I’m happy that I did. Love it. Can’t wait to read more!
I wonder why they can’t design chairs like these anymore. Simple design with a smart function.
Wow, great chair, never seen it before! I want one!
I happen to have one of these, together with another Gimson & Slater lounge chair. Never knew the designer or model, and from now on I am sure gonna be a whole lot more careful with ‘em. Thanks for this!
