This chair combines a translucent support with a slender vertical pebbling, running along the entire outside of the rounded backrest, with its soft and snug lines. The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the entire structure is light. Papyrus' wide range of brand-new “old-fashioned" colors make the play of the worked surfaces even more evident and attractive. Perfect for public and residential establishments.
