A clean and wet towel should be used to wipe the surface of any product that is exposed to ordinary or corrosive liquid within 10 minutes. A piece of dry cloth should then be applied to absorb the residual moisture. Please try not to apply a detergent with a high concentration of alcohol or a bleaching effect to clean household products. If you have no alternative, you must wipe the detergent off immediately after cleaning to remove corrosive liquid residue.

  1. Who designed the Embrace Armchair?
  2. The Embrace Armchair was designed by EOOS, an internationally renowned design collaborative. EOOS's unique process, called Poetical Analysis®, focuses on myths, rituals and intuitive expressions, creating connections that extend beyond initial perceptions. In 2015, EOOS collaborated with Carl Hansen & Søn to produce the Embrace Armchair. Carl Hansen & Søn is a Danish furniture company with a long history of craftsmanship and quality design. The collaboration between these two companies resulted in a progressive design approach that introduced a new aesthetic to the range of products offered by Carl Hansen & Søn.
  3. What is the armchair made of?
  4. The Embrace Armchair is made of soft, modern upholstery with a classic, light, solid wood frame. The wooden structure is continuous, with the legs serving as an essential element of the overall silhouette rather than additions to the upholstered upper section. The back of the frame, composed of three pieces assembled in classic finger joints, is especially striking.
  5. How does the cushion attach to the frame?
  6. The cushion attaches to the frame with a series of straps that go around the back and sides of the chair. This allows the cushion to float within the frame, giving it a soft, comfortable look.
  7. What is the purpose of the finger joints on the back of the frame?
  8. The finger joints on the back of the frame are used to assemble the three pieces that make up the back of the chair. This gives the chair a more sculptural look, and also makes it more comfortable by allowing the back to be slightly flexible.
  9. Is the Embrace Armchair part of a series?
  10. Yes, the Embrace Armchair is part of a series of chairs created by Carl Hansen & Søn and EOOS. The series includes both armchairs and lounge chairs, all of which are designed for superior comfort with soft, organic materials.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela
