This very English club chair is a Varney favorite because it is comfortably proportioned and lends itself to relaxation for long periods of time. The saddle arms, tight back, and loose cushion are all classic design elements. A waterfall flounce is standard. Carleton Varney continues to use this chair for many of his design projects, also available as a Sofa, 8892.
"The job of decorating is never done. There is always something to update, restore or refresh. And I am still at it, living a lifetime of colorful interior design and enjoying every single minute."
