Parker Knoll Recliner Chairs
Even those who know very little about furniture will have heard of Parker Knoll. One of the most iconic brands in the industry, Parker Knoll has been around for almost 150 years. The brand’s pieces have all the hallmarks of quality and are as desirable (if not more) today than they were when they were first produced. First established in 1869 as Parker furniture, the brand was inspired by a desire to create innovative fine furniture. When one of the Parker family met Willi Knoll, a German ex-fighter pilot, the brand’s future was assured, with the advent of luxurious spring furniture – an innovation inspired by Knoll’s uncomfortable experience of sitting in his aeroplane during the war! The Parker Knoll brand went from strength to strength, surviving through another World War when their factory was temporarily called into use to help manufacture aircraft. The 1950s were a key time for Parker Knoll, and their Cromwell Norton recliner was the latest in technological innovation. These chairs are still incredibly popular today thanks to their iconic style and impressive construction. Here on the Vinterior website you’ll find an impressive array of beautiful vintage Parker Knoll recliner chairs that will look wonderful at any fireside.
