|Emily and Emma|
“Emily is our Emma easy chair’s little sister. Just like siblings, they are similar but still different. The family likeness can be seen in the needlework: they are both upholstered, but differently patterned. The needlework is a function which also creates a powerful idiom. The special technique employed is based on a classical craft, while at the same time occupying the leading edge of technology. Emily is a comfortable chair, equally successful round the dining table and at a conference table.”
Emma Marga Blanche & Fredrik Färg designed the two upholstered armchair collections Emma and Emily for the Swedish firm Gärsnäs. Gärsnäs has been making quality furniture since 1893, from its workshop in Österlen - South-East Sweden.
"At Gärsnäs, we believe that what we do is important and that we play a significant role in society. Furniture should be durable, beautiful, and make people feel good. It should encourage a sense of happiness. We sit all our lives – when we work, attend meetings, eat meals. So when we sit down, it should feel good."
