DA

The DA, launched in 1946, was Ernest Race’s interpretation of the classic wingback chair. This was upholstered furniture for the modern, space conscious home. The range was originally conceived in collaboration with Heals of London. With its light anatomical construction, the DA series was a radical departure from the traditional bulky armchairs of the past, while still providing exceptional comfort. The 1951 Race catalogue reinforced Ernest Race’s philosophy stating that, ‘Bulk and weight are not synonymous with comfort.
