Design by Charles Pfister, 1971.
The Pfister Petite Lounge Chair was designed as part of Charles Pfister's namesake modular Lounge Seating Collection in 1971. The clean-lined design offers both long-term flexibility and an enduring, highly versatile aesthetic. The Petite Lounge features slim lines with ample seating in a smaller silhouette and is offered with an optional Tablet Arm for the left or right arm of the chair. The black phenolic rectangular tablet measures 10" x 14" and swivels 360° on a post and socket mechanism, providing a side table surface that is up close and personal.
This lounge chair is constructed in sections with a combination plywood/hardwood seat and back with sagless webbing in the back. Cushion fill is a polyester fiber wrap over a foam core for a tight, tailored aesthetic. The Collection also includes a Petite Settee, Petite Sofa and Petite Ottoman, sold separately.
The Pfister Lounge Seating Collection is Greenguard certified. Coverings are upholstered on both sides in fabric or leather on standard Pfister. Petite Pfister lounge seat and back cushion are fully upholstered. Seat decking is black cotton textile. Includes nylon, adjustable glides.
Material(s): Hardwood with square steel tubing and fabric (content dependent on textile/leather selection)
