Carl Malmsten Furniture Häggbom

Häggbom – Year 1951

Many of the items of furniture created by Carl Malmsten were made to order. The furniture would often be given the name of the person placing the order. In this case the Häggbom armchair was designed for the civic architect of the time, Sven Häggbom in Gävle. You can almost see how Carl tried to capture the client's character in the furniture.

The armchair is available with a fixed seat or loose cushion.
