Milena is a large easy chair with an oak frame and woven Danish cord seat and backrest. The sleek curves of the frame were first shaped by machine then finished by hand. The oak has been soap finished to give the chair a golden-brown colour and a texture that enhances curved design. The back legs are laminated with constructional veneers while the rest of the frame components are made of solid oak. Mortice and tenon joints for the seat-leg joints. Domino joints have been used elsewhere.
