Axel Larsson for SMF Bodafors, Rare Swedish Modern Upholstered Birch Armchair

$7,200

About

A rare and incredibly comfortable chair. The subtle wingback with seven tufted buttons, issuing dramatically curved arms, the large seat above a thin birch apron, terminating in tapering legs. Expertly restored and ready to add to your collection. The chair appears to be in its original upholstery with new decorative tape applied throughout. The model was exhibited at Ribershus Bostadsutställning in Malmö in 1938 and is illustrated by Johan Sjöberg (ed.), Svenska möbler tillverkade i Småländ, p.32.
