Carl Malmsten Furniture Jättepaddan

Jättepaddan – Year 1934

Carl Malmsten created his furniture as one creates a work of art - he wanted to express something; a feeling or a quality. This often finds expression in the furniture's names. Jättepaddan "The Giant Toad" is a striking and humorous example of this.

With its generous format and embracing form, it offers a greater than usual comfort of sitting, which is also confirmed by a number of consumer surveys.
