The Balini contemporary club armchair, by German designer Meike Harde, is equally at home in a secluded reading nook or as the central focus of a room. It makes a uniquely stylish and welcoming statement.
Balini’s upholstered panels emphasise its comfort and elegance, a bit like a nice warm padded winter jacket, but one you can sit on. And if you like to survey the view all around you, it’s also available in a swivel version.
Balini’s upholstery epitomises the painstaking craftsmanship that’s such an integral part of Pode’s DNA. You can even tailor it to your own style by choosing different materials for the inside and outside.
Asked to create a chair that would exert a hypnotic fascination on all who beheld it, Meike Harde grasped the opportunity with both hands. ‘I was given carte blanche to come up with a sculptural design, and took my inspiration from the 1980s, when a lot of armchairs had no legs and could easily be placed side by side. This is our modern interpretation of that concept.
Add a footstool for extra comfort
Soft outlines and ornamental edge stitching make Balini supremely elegant. And why not treat your feet to the same exceptional comfort by adding one of our equally gorgeous footstools? The Banzi series, available in a range of widths, is a particularly striking match for this chair.
