Instantly recognizable and combining thoughtful styling with minimal lines, the Risom Side Chair is at home in dining and living spaces alike.

Features mortise and tenon construction. Select frame finish with cotton or cotton/nylon webbing in several color options.


The Risom Side chairs are Greenguard certified.
