Vintage Norwegian Hove Mobler Tall Brown Leather ‘Skyline’ Armchair
A very handsome, vintage Norwegian ‘Skyline’ chair made by Hove Mobler in the 1970s. With its tall back, cantilevered frame and deep tilt, it’s a really indulgent, comfortable chair offering great support. The deep brown leather is soft, supple and in immaculate condition, and it looks great partnered with the light bentwood frame. Chairs of this style have a particularly striking, organic form with their open curves and line – they aren’t ‘heavy-set’ like many conventional lounge chairs. Partner with other lounge seating or use as a stand-alone chair in a bedroom or office.
This original piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent, used condition. The leather upholstery has been cleaned, as has the frame with a natural beeswax polish applied. The original deep brown leather upholstery is in excellent order on the sectioned, single cushion. There’s very little light wear and wrinkling to the leather but this is minimal and barely noticeable. Likewise, the finishing vinyl canvas underneath and the straps are also in excellent order. The cushion inners are soft and plump, and the zips and buttons in good order. The cushion fixed to the frame with popper studs at the top back and the seat front. The chair is superbly constructed, solid and sturdy with no wobbles or creaks. There are some very light scuffs here and there to the wooden frame but as you can see from our photos, these are very minor indeed. There is no maker’s mark on the frame but we know this to be a Hove Mobler design as part of its Skyline range, and dates from the the 1970s.
