Original 1970s Danish Tall Leather ‘Skyline’ Armchair by Hove Mobler

The forever-stylish, vintage, Danish ‘Skyline’ chair, manufactured by Hove Mobler in the 1970s. These bentwood chairs are very comfortable, indulgent seats, providing great contoured support, with its high back and head rest, its cantilevered frame and its deep, generous tilt. The dark chocolate brown leather is thick, soft, supple and in super condition with just light signs of use. The leather complements the rich, dark tones of the curvy wooden frame perfectly. Chairs of this style have a particularly striking, organic form with their open curves and lines – they aren’t ‘heavy-set’ like more conventional lounge chairs. Partner with other seating or use as a stand-alone seat in a bedroom or office.

This original, vintage chair is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. We have given the chair frame a thorough clean, applying a natural beeswax polish to the wooden frame and nourishing leather cleaner to the cushion. The three-part, sectioned cushion is in very good order with securely affixed buttons, working zips and plump inner foams. The original leather is thick, soft and supple with just light, surface wrinkles from use, very much part of its appeal and character. Do refer to our photos. The cushion fixes to the frame with poppers at the top back and front seat edge. The vinyl seat and straps underneath the cushion are also in very good order. The frame is in very good order too with light fading / wear to the wooden arm ends, as shown. It’s superbly constructed, solid and sturdy with no wobbles or creaks. There is no maker’s mark on the frame but we know this chair well – it’s a well-documented Hove Mobler design, part of its Skyline range, and dates from the the 1970s. Do browse out photos. If you have any queries or would like to view this chair, please do get in touch.
