Ballard Designs has designed a terrific looking Swedish country chair called "Sorrento" that has all the good looks of one of the most popular Swedish chair designs.
The classic slat back frame features tapered fluted legs, padded arm rests and padded linen seat. This chair is part of Ballard Design's exclusive Casa Florentina collection. They sell it for $559, and comes in your choice of several hand-applied finishes. Skilled artisans apply your custom finish in layers, distressing each one by hand using the same simple tools and techniques employed by Florentine artists for centuries.
