ARTLESS Melinda Seating is not so much an object as a state of mind, Melinda is not a person, but a mood, a bit distracted and light headed. Melinda is the ideal companion to hold you in when the world seems like it is just too much to handle. The Melinda chair and settee are the closest of all ARTLESS seating pieces to a bucket seat. The chairs dimensions embrace the body, and the arm height is ideal for holding a book. We believe it is our most formal seating, yet in many ways, our softest. While the solid Walnut base brings a hint of toughness to the back. Melinda is just full of subtle contradictions.
