Swedish 1970s Brown Leather Armchair Designed by Ebbe Gehl & Soren Nissen for Jeki

A statement lounge chair that’s low, laidback and masculine, it originates from 1970s Sweden, designed by Ebbe Gehl and Soren Nissen for renowned maker, Jeki Mobler Bramming. The chunky, tubular, modernist frame in stained solid beech looks grand with the deep chocolate brown leather. And comfort is as important as the good looks here. From the tilt (which can be adjusted) to the contoured back to the plump cushions to the generous proportions, this is an indulgent seat. You’re in danger of never getting back up! It’s rare to find a chair like this in such good condition – just light signs of wear and tear adding to its aged, vintage appeal in our view.

SKU: S524


This original, vintage chair is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition. It is comprised of a single sectioned cushion that secures in place with poppers in the bottom and with Velcro at the top. The leather cushion is in very good order. We’ve thoroughly cleaned the cushion with a specialist, nourishing leather cleaner. The leather is soft, supple with securely attached buttons, working zips and plump inners. The leather arm rest slings are in very good order too. There are wrinkles and surface marks here and there on the leather which you can see in our photos but this is very part of aged leather’s appeal. The canvas and suede back panels underneath the cushions and at the back are in good order. There are some light marks here and there from use and some wear along the top back edge, where it has rubbed against a wall. There is a working mechanism on each chair that raises the tilt. There are two positions. The dark stained wooden frame is solid and stable with minor scuffs and marks to the finish – please refer to our photos. Overall this is minor and doesn’t detract from its good looks. There is no maker’s label but this is very fine quality, well-documented chair that we attribute with confidence to Jeki, designed by Ebbe Gehl and Soren Nissen, and made in the seventies.
