Smart Vintage 1970s Scandinavian Bentwood Brown Leather Armchair
A really handsome example of the classic, Scandinavian, cantilever bentwood lounge chair. The high, deep gloss and fluid lines of the chair’s frame complement the soft and supple, aged brown leather cushions and buttoned arm rests perfectly. Not a chair to stick in the corner, it should be enjoyed from all sides – the back is quite something. It’s not just about the looks though, this is super comfy from the contoured back providing maximum support to the soft, thick leather cushions to the generous seat depth and width to the plump arm rests. It dates from the 1970s and we believe it’s most likely to be Danish but there is a chance its Norwegian as they also produced very fine, leather chairs.
This is an original, used chair that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good , vintage condition. The chair has been cleaned and the leather nourished with a natural, neutral balm. The single sectioned seat cushion simply rests in place on the frame. The cushion is in good – very good order with soft, supple leather, securely stitched lines, a working zip and plump inners. There are faded corners, wrinkles and surface marks but these are in line with how leather wears through use and is very much part of its character. Please refer to our photos to get a true sense of this. The two leather arm rests are in very good order too. The canvas under the cushion is in excellent order as are the strapping and fixtures. The dark wood bentwood frame is solid and stable with only very light surface marks here and there. Sadly and frustratingly there is no maker’s label but this is a very fine quality chair.
