Victoria Yakusha Looks to the Ancients for the Domna Lounge Chair

While conceiving the Domna, Kyiv-based architect and Yakusha Design namesake Victoria Yakusha looked to her region’s ancient Trypilian civilization, known not only for its distinctive pottery and circular buildings but also for
its reverence for women. Which explains the lounge chair’s feminine curves and strong grounded profile (its name is actually an early Ukrainian word for homemaker). Part of the firm’s Faina furniture line, its frame is wrapped in foam rubber and polyester wadding and upholstered in a wool-polyester blend.
A coordinating ottoman is also available.
