Children's building blocks inspired the pleasingly chunky form of the Gus Modern Kipling Glider. Its ergonomic proportions and geometric shape are enhanced by the French seams of the tight upholstery. The chair glides back and forth smoothly and quietly on a recessed wood platform base, making ideal in the nursery or the living room. Matching ottoman sold separately.

- Care of Gus Modern Fabric Upholstery- For regular maintenance and to maintain the nap of the fabric, vacuuming your sofa regularly is recommended. | Dab spills immediately with an absorbent cloth and remove the stain using cool distilled water and/or a mild soap. DO NOT over-saturate a stain with cleanser. | Always test in an inconspicuous area first before using any soap product. | For thorough cleaning, professional dry cleaning or a professional in-home upholstery cleaning service is recommended. | Protect your furniture from direct sunlight, as this may cause the fabric to fade unevenly over time.
