In summer, we spend so much time focused on our outdoor furniture, we neglect some of the great indoor pieces. One of these is our Jemma Occasional Chair. It has structured lines and a soft pillow back, benchmade in Canada and available in fabric or leather. One of the best features of this compact little chair (besides the comfort) is the short seat depth of 20″. We are often asked for a chair to seat shorter people and the Jemma fits the bill. It sits upright for comfortable television watching or reading, and is easy on a bad back.
