Original 1970’s Westnofa Norwegian Tall Leather Bentwood Chair
A smart, stylish Norwegian 1970’s bentwood chair, made by Westnofa Furniture and most likely designed by Ingmar Relling. We believe it’s his well-documented ‘Siesta’ chair in a deep burnt orange tan leather. The original maker’s sticker has unfortunately rubbed off but we can see where it was affixed, on the back of the chair where Westnofa put their label. It’s as comfortable as you might expect with the perfect tilt and it is in fantastic condition. These chairs offer an excellent alternative to bulkier, more traditional lounge chairs as the proportions are compact and slim without compromising on comfort.
This is a used, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. The chair has been thoroughly cleaned and leather nourished. It’s soft and supple. There are some wrinkles and minor marks on the leather but these are very minimal . The finishing canvas under the leather cushions is a little sunlight faded around the edges but it’s strong and shows no areas of weakness or signs of repairs. The dark bentwood frame is structurally sound and sturdy. Again, there are some minor scuffs and scratches in line with its age. Overall this chair is in excellent condition.
