The history of Parker Knoll

The company was first set up during the 1860s under the name Parker Furniture. The brand’s motivation was to create fine pieces that harnessed the latest innovations, and even from its earliest days it was leading the way in the industry. After the First World War, one of the Parker family met a German ex-fighter pilot by the name of Willi Knoll and the brand’s future was set. Knoll had lasting memories of the uncomfortable experience of his aeroplane seat and used his experience as inspiration to create incredibly comfortable sprung seating, which was a new invention in the 1930s.

Surviving through another World War, Parker Knoll emerged into the 1950s stronger than ever, and it was during the 1960s and 70s that their Statesman chair made its dramatic entrance. Taking its inspiration from office seating, the executive chair was brought into living rooms around the country as homeowners longed to add a touch of sophistication to their homes.

Parker Knoll is thriving today, and is still one of the top British furniture companies. Browse the Vinterior website and discover our impressive array of beautiful of vintage Parker Knoll statesman chairs, designed to bring traditional sophistication to your living room or home office.
