Designer pop chair by Kartell

Kartell Pop outdoor chair

One of the top brands of contemporary designer chairs, Kartell is a name synonymous with quality.

For many people, buying a Kartell chair is an investment decision. This Pop outdoor armchair by Piero Lisso, for example, would normally set you back just over £1,000 from many retailers.

If there’s a brand you really like, it’s always worth looking out for a bargain or money-saving opportunity, where you could snap up your desired piece of furniture for a snip of the price.

If this is the chair you’ve been coveting, there’s currently a bargain to be had for someone, as Oliver Bonas have an ex-display Kartell Pop chair in their sale for just £420.
