We usually deal with Swedish items from the 4 most important periods (Baroque, Rococo, Gustavian and Empire / Karl Johan) dating from 1650-1830’s but once in a while projects calls for other type of pieces for many different reasons.  The Emma Chair got its breakthrough in the mid 1800 hundreds but are still being produced. Bruno Mattsson did his version, the swedish fashion brand Acne Studios  theirs. Its such a great and comfortable chair and easy to place. We used it for the lobby at The Maidstone Arms in East Hamptons.
