Makonde 1 armchair, carved in Makonde style, mahogany wood, one piece

The shape of the backrest – oval and protective, the soft upholstery and the authentic African hand carving are defining features of this armchair model – Makonde 1.

It belongs to our late African sculptor, Fharasisi Amblosi, who was a master of fine, small-scale detail. This can be seen from the way he expressed the life of the Makonde tribe of which he was a member, with many interconnected characters.

That’s why the Makonde 1 armchair is a unique, unrepeatable piece of luxury furniture that is both functional and comfortable to use with joy.
