Chaise longue

This chaise longue is part of the first pieces created by Joaquim Tenreiro since the opening of his store Langenbach & Tenreiro in 1947. It embodies, as the «Estrutural» chairs, the lightness and elegance that Tenreiro wanted to give to the new Brazilian homes, while keeping the identity of the materials.
