Midcentury Danish Lystolet Brown Leather Reclining Swivel Chair

Made by Lystolet, Denmark, in the 1970’s, this smart, deep brown leather swivel chair combines comfort, sharp good looks and retro fun. Not only does it swing, it reclines into three different positions too. This is a chair that works on its own in an office, snug or quiet spot in the home. Equally though, its neutral colour and unfussy design means it can sit comfortably alongside other sofas and chairs. Leather is also a practical choice is a chair made for lazing and lounging.

This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good-very good, used condition and we have cleaned the chair. As was often the way with vintage, bucket chairs, some elements are leather-look vinyl. It’s actually very hard to tell, so close is the match to the leather, but our experience tells that the fixed upholstery on the back of the frame is leather-effect. The cushions and the arms are genuine, fine quality leather.  The cushions are in very good order with buttons in tact, plump foam inside and working zips. There is some wrinkling on the cushions, particularly the seat cushion, which is shown in our photos and this is as we would expect with vintage leather. It does carry marks and that’s part of its appeal. The finishing fabric underneath the cushions is also in good order. The fixed upholstery on the frame is in good condition. There are scuffs, marks and signs of wear which can be seen in our photos. There are two small tears to the back vinyl, again shown in our photos. As they’re on the back they don’t show now are they likely to deteriorate further. It should also be noted that the middle button on the right arm sits more shallowly than the others. We believe that it had some off and it has since been glued back. It’s secure and isn’t particularly noticeable. The silver metal swivel base moves freely with ease, as does the recline mechanism which is changed with a lever. It has three positions. The original Lystolet maker’s sticker can be seen underneath. Please refer to our photos for accurate sense of condition.
