The Paramount is one of the rare high-fashion designs that is genuinely flexible, working equally well in both modern and more traditional settings. The butterknife arm is not only comfortable but also a bit thinner and more tailored than most. A stylized bracket detail, slightly elongated, appears on all four sides of the chair, making it an ideal candidate to float.
The rectilinear form and largely weltless design create an edited look. To some extent, that pushes the eye to the short, dramatically-flaring legs. A great extra chair and an equally great finishing touch.
