Original Danish 1970’s Farstrup Chair in Light Tan Orange Leather
A handsome, low, bentwood chair in an unusual light tan / deep orange leather that hails from 1970’s Denmark and is attributed to Farstrup Møbler. A wonderful, light-weight lounge chair that can work in the modern home as a standalone seat or partnered with other seating. Its fluid, ‘open’ form means it is significantly less bulky than a more conventional lounge chair, taking up much less space. And of course, vintage, aged leather can be a hard-wearing, practical choice too.
This is an original, used piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good-very good, vintage condition. The chair has been thoroughly cleaned and the tan leather nourished. The leather is soft, supple and in good order including the zips and buttons. There are some wrinkles and areas of colour-fading which are honestly shown in our photos. These are in line with how leather wears through use and are part of its character. There are some marks on the leather upholstery too – these are minor and subtle, most likely from the odd spill. The bentwood frame itself is sturdy and solid, with a few age-related surface marks including a little paint on the back bar. The canvas and straps under the cushions are in good order too. We recommend you browse our photos for an accurate sense of the condition. Sadly this particular piece no longer has the maker’s label attached but it’s a well-documented design and we know it’s an original Farstrup Mobler chair.
