Kovacs Frankie Chair

Price: $1,739


For over 60 years, the Kovacs family business has passed down the skill within traditional European artisanship along with an unwavering commitment to innovation. Based right here in Christchurch, the popularity of the Kovacs brand has grown with each generation. The difference? The most comfortable, durable and timelessly stylish furniture you'll own.

Distinctive style and a well padded comfortable occasional chair. A lovely compact armchair.

The reasoning behind the name of this chair should become obvious when it’s viewed alongside our popular Franklin model.

While the Frankie has the distinctive style and well-padded comfort of it’s bigger brother the lower profile, slimmer hind leg and compact footprint of this chair make it suited to a wider range of interior environments in both commercial and residential settings. With huge flexibility in fabric styles and small-but-confident charm this is a chair that can fit in or stand out – the choice is yours.

Option A: No buttons (plain back) and top stitched arms.

Option B: Buttoned back and top stitched arms.

Option C: Buttoned back and piped arms.

The price shown is for the chair covered in a $42/m fabric. You can have the chair covered in your choice of any fabric or leather from our huge range, to suit your décor.
