Mid Century Danish Black Leather Tall Armchair with Rosewood Legs

A sharp, masculine, stylish Danish black leather armchair in fantastic shape and with many, many  years of lounging love to give. Dating from the late sixties / early seventies, it’s a classic Scandinavian design with a tall back and generous proportions for ultimate comfort. It looks great from all sides with its chiselled good looks, those richly toned rosewood legs and the dramatic sloping arms. These pieces can be a statement seat on their own or they mix well with other styles from different periods. And as we always say, vintage leather is a practical cover choice for a seat that’s destined to be used a lot in the modern home.

This is an original, vintage chair that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition. We have cleaned the leather and applied a nourishing leather balm. The rosewood legs have also been cleaned and a wax polish applied. There is only one loose cushion – the seat cushion – on this chair. The back and head rest cushions are fixed. The leather of the seat cushion is in good, vintage order and has a working zip and soft inner. The fixed leather upholstery is also in good order, particularly so, looking at the chair from the front. There is some wrinkling in the curves of the sloping arms and the bagginess on the side panels where the inner upholstery has aged but overall these don’t detract greatly from the appeal of this fine chair. Age-related marks, scuffs and wrinkles are part of the very appeal of vintage leather in our view. At the back of the chair there is a small tear, measuring around 1cm. Depending on where you would position the piece, this may not be visible and where this damage is, it would be unlikely to deteriorate. Please refer to our photo. The wooden  legs carry minor knocks and scuffs but nothing specific to call out, just light wear and tear. The chair is very solid and sturdy with no wobbles or signs of repair.  Sadly there is no maker’s mark on the piece but it’s an item imported directly from Denmark so is well-made and comes with a great pedigree. Please browse our photos for a good sense of their order.
