A Chair You Can Be Happy About Sitting In

Designed for comfort, the Happy chair by Fred Rieffel for ARFA, is kind of like a gentle hug. The chair’s sloped-back seat and back is made of foam covered, molded wood with two side panels that reach around providing extra support.

The origin of the chair began back in 1999 from a sketch Rieffel did. Over the years, ARFA and Rieffel have collaborated on ten products, including Happy.
