One of a Kind Pair of Vintage Alvar Aalto Tank Armchairs, masterfully restored in handcrafted blankets from Swans Island Company, the Maine based textile and blanket studio and workshop.
The Armchair 400 or "Tank Chair" is one of Alvar Aalto's best known works. The sculptural cantilever design showcases the beauty of bent plywood. We worked with the brilliant team at Swans Island Company to craft hand woven 100% wool blankets for the upholstery.
The hand woven Grace Blankets are one of Swans Island's original designs that they began making over thirty years ago. Inspired by blankets remembered from his youth, Swans Island founder John Grace created these beautiful blankets. Grace Blankets feature bands of hand-dyed stripes at each end for a classic, coastal New England aesthetic.
