chair jolly jola
Chair Jolly Jola is a so called Bergère chair in Louis XVI style from the 20th century. The type of chair is also called a ‘French open armchair’. The seat of the chair has been upholstered with a new fabric Lamba from Osborne & Little. The left- and right side of chair, as well as the elbow rests, have been upholstered with old kelim bags used by nomads to transport e.g. oat and sand. The kelim is a good example of specialized and detailed embroidery. The kelim originates from Anatolia, Turkey and has been embroidered with the cicim technique. This is a special weaving technique whereby fine wool is embroidered on cotton in vibrant colors in elegant geometric patterns.
