Norwegian 1970’s Westnofa ‘Siesta’ Tall Leather Bentwood Chair by Ingmar Relling
A smart, stylish, Norwegian, 1970’s bentwood chair, made by Westnofa Furniture and designed by Ingmar Relling. A tall version of his acclaimed, iconic ‘Siesta’ chair that won his design recognition and cemented his reputation as a leading MCM designer. Even the White House, back in the day, was furnished with Ingmar Relling’s Siestas! Its floating, curvaceous form combines striking good looks with super comfort, its tilt and suspension providing great support. We love the chestnut brown leather of this one and the detail of the cord running through the frame and seat canvas. These chairs offer an excellent alternative to bulkier, more traditional lounge chairs as the proportions are compact and slim without compromising on comfort.

This is an original, vintage chair that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition. The chair has been thoroughly cleaned and the leather nourished. It’s soft and supple. There are some wrinkles and minor marks on the leather but these are minimal and what you would expect from vintage leather. There is some wear to the leather on the back buttons too – please refer to our photos. The finishing canvas under the leather cushions is a little sunlight faded around the edges but it’s otherwise strong and securely moored into position with the cord, and shows no signs of repairs. The dark bentwood frame is structurally sound and sturdy. Again, there are some very minor scuffs and scratches in line with its age. Overall this chair is in cracking condition. The Westnofa maker’s label is affixed to the bottom. Please do browse our photos for a good sense of colour and order. Any questions, please do ask.
