Jättepaddan

A solid, cosy armchair, comfortably reclined, with pleasing rounded forms, generous format and soft upholstered seat. The armchair was presented at the Liljevalchs exhibition in 1934, where Carl Malmsten participated together with the textile artists Märta Måås-Fjetterström and Elsa Gullberg, the furniture designer David Blomberg, and Estrid Ericson from Svenskt Tenn. Carl Malmsten always wanted to express something with his furniture; a feeling or a quality. This often finds expression in the furniture’s names. Jättepaddan (Giant Toad) is a striking and humourous example of this.
