The newest member of the Shark chair family has a unique base that reflects
the image of the current era.  

The much-loved Artifort Shark chair family has been expanded with a new member: Shark with a swiveling disc base with return mechanism. The shell of this comfortable chair with its characteristic high back is distinctive due to its unique base. The swiveling metal pedestal matches the silhouette of the upholstered shell. This gives the Shark a luxurious appearance.

Shark is extremely comfortable to sit on. It's sturdy too, with extra support for your back. The series of chairs can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. The base with return mechanism of this newest member of the Shark chair family is finished in textured powder coat.
