Midcentury Norwegian Westnofa White & Black Safari Lounge Chair
This particular chair has undergone quite the transformation! You wouldn’t recognise it from when it first arrived at our door but we knew there was a gem underneath. And what a striking midcentury piece has been revealed with its charcoal black bentwood frame and white leather upholstery. It features safari strapped arms and the combination of soft, supple leather with the curved lines of the wooden frame mean it looks stunning from all angles. This Norwegian chair was made by Westnofa and their bentwood designs offer an excellent option for a smaller space where you want the comfort of a lounge chair but can’t accommodate the usual bulkiness that comes with a more standard design. Westnofa knew just how to balance space around their chairs and consequently its proportions are compact. This stand-out chair has been lovingly cleaned and restored. It’s ready for a modern home.

The original grey white leather upholstery is in excellent vintage condition. It’s been thoroughly cleaned and nourished. As you would expect with leather, there are marks and wrinkles but this ageing is as you would expect from a vintage piece. The canvas underneath has lightly marked with use too but again, this doesn’t detract from the piece or look unsightly. It has also been cleaned. There is a a little discolouration here and there on the arm ends, and the buttons but it’s minor. There is a little fraying at the back to the canvas but it isn’t noticeable, nor is it likely to deteriorate further. The frame is structurally sound and sturdy and it’s as comfortable as it looks. Refer to our photos to see accurately the condition of the chair. The original Westnofa sticker is still affixed underneath, adding provenance. We have thoroughly cleaned the wood too.
