Arne Färnrot Wingback Chair in Blue Wool Fabric and Mahogany, Sweden, Late 1940s

$8,072.95Asking Price


This rare wingback chair was designed by Arne Färnrot and produced in Sweden in the late 1940s. The elegant organic lines of the design create a striking silhouette. Its generous proportions and the high back make this a sumptous and very comfortable armchair. The chair is upholstered in a blue wool fabric, with a buttoned back and fully sprung seat. The legs are made of solid mahogany. Literature: Arthur Hald (ed), FORM, Svenska Slöjdföreningens tidskrift, 1947, nr 3, this model is illustrated on page 44.
