Siesta Ovis High Back by Ingmar Relling

Siesta high back easy chair in sheepskin

In 1965 Ingmar Relling designed his greatest creation: the SIESTA chair. The chair played an important part of the Norwegian furniture industry’s growth and international success in the mid 1900s. Today SIESTA stands out as an internationally recognized classic and a Norwegian icon.

True to its origin and to Ingmar Relling’s original idea of the SIESTA chair – an elegant design, an optimised use of materials and an outstanding comfort.

To celebrate Siesta’s traditions and use of natural materials the chair got a new suit in 2021. Sheepskin is a traditional material used by mankind for centuries due to its properties such as warmth and durability. «Ovis» means sheep in Latin, hence the name: Siesta Ovis. Its soft and cosy appearance invites you to sit for hours and makes for the perfect spot to relax!
