Parker Knoll Froxfield chair, PK749 Mk1. This chair was recovered in the green fabric in the 1970s.

The Parker Knoll Froxfield was introduced in 1955. It was designed to be a small but comfortable chair ideal for small rooms.

The design was elegant rather than contemporary. The personality of the chair depended on the fabric. Medieval-style floral prints went well with it, as did contemporary fabrics.

The Froxfield was part of a group of three: the Froxfield, the Frith wing chair and by 1967, a matching 2-seater sofa.

The Froxfield continued in production until the 1980s.

The Froxfield is not rare as it had a strong following in the 1960s and 1970s. Unlike the Penshurst, the top end of the market for the Froxfield prefers traditional prints such as William Morris designs.

Good Froxfields are still sought after today:

Tired-looking examples should be cheap. Reupholstering is expensive.
