With such a deep seat and a buttoned back resembling a headboard, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Rubeus is a chair to snooze in.

But the flat smoothness of this armchair's fixed seat does inspire daydreams – and the firm back and arms do create a supportive spot for sitting up with a book 'til the wee hours. So we forgive you.

Sister to the Emsworth, this armchair is equally classic and timelessly traditional, though its padded arms tufted less densely – but with the same pretty pleating we fell for the first time round.

And you don't even need to plump. It's the epitome of low maintenance. Phew.

The Rubeus range is handcrafted in Europe


Designs are made with natural materials and are handcrafted one at a time. There may be natural variations in colour and texture that are not product flaws, they make your design truly one-of-a-kind.

An original piece for the contemporary home, progressive and beautifully designed. In the Swoon Studio, we create with urban landscapes as our point of inspiration. Cracks running through concrete on city streets, the architecture of an old railway station, the birds-eye view of paths in a green space. We see the extraordinary within the ordinary. We use it to fuel a new wave of design.


Check the dimensions of your furniture before you order, so you know it'll fit into your home when we deliver it.
