Shelby Adjustable Swivel Leather Armchair by FSM

$6,540per item


FSM Shelby chair by De Sede. Built for blissful relaxation, this easy chair takes its name from its constructional design: a hard shell containing a soft and cosy core with convenient seating adjustment. With his latest creation, designer Georg Appeltshauser has focused his attention on comfort and graceful elegance: the chair’s sumptuous upholstery forms an intriguing contrast to its slim external lines. The seat swivels through a full 360° and offers an impressive 17-degree angle of tilt. When its slender concealed leg-rest is fully extended, the Shelby provides an impressively generous seating area. Whether in an exquisite blend of different leather qualities or in combination with choice fabric, whether in solid or broken colours, its covering materials can be chosen to ensure that the Shelby meets everyone’s personal requirements. Details: Standard configuration: Four-star base, rotatable, high-gloss chrome-plated. Construction: Seat: metal construction. Back and armrests: molded shell with steel connectors. Upholstery: Seat suspension with elastic belts, lightweight down cover. Seat cushion: Bultex foam core, cambered. Armrest cushion: foam insert. Back cushion: foam insert with comfort layer. Function: Headrest continuously adjustable. Seat inclination continuously backwards adjustable through release lever to a maximum of 17° backwards into the relax position. Leg rest is easy to extend and can also be titled forwards for a comfortable leg position. Substructure: Four-star base, rotatable, high-gloss chrome-plated flat steel. Pearlescent chrome plating or different-colored coatings available upon request, at additional charge. Glides for hard and soft floorings. Note: Seat, back and head cushions with loose-fitting covers. Folds and creases will inevitably develop as the product is used. Avoid putting excess pressure on the footrest or the back when in relax position. The seat can withstand a maximum of 120 kg, the back 60 kg and the footrest 30 kg. Outer cover not available in fabric.

About the Manufacturer

De Sede

A de Sede piece lends a strong personality to the room it occupies. One of the world’s most respected furniture design houses, de Sede’s quality Swiss craftsmanship has its foundation in a long history of making expertly designed saddles. Founded in 1965 to build on a successful family-run saddler’s workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland, de Sede now is a leading manufacturer of leather goods and furniture, including sofas, chairs and beds.

At the core of de Sede’s philosophy is a reverence for the complexity and beauty of handcrafted furniture in an age when mass-produced objects are the norm. Over the years, the atelier has built a name for itself in its modular furniture pieces, which are made using the highest quality leather upholstery. The sleek, elegant pieces incorporate functionality with beauty. Amongst their best-selling designs is the DS-600 introduced in 1972. Also known as the Non Stop sofa, it is a sensually curved, snaking modular sofa whose individual pieces can be zipped together to create multiple variations and arcs.

De Sede has collaborated with some of the world's finest design minds, enhancing the prestige and individuality of their products. Designers like Santiago Calatrava, Antonella Scarpitta, Stephan Hürlemann, Gordon Guillaumier and Philippe Malouin have all created pieces with the atelier. Ubald Klug’s 1974 DS-1025, also known as the Terrazza sofa, is an enduring favorite with its cascading levels of leather. In 2017, de Sede expanded its product line to include high-quality leather handbags, which are as thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted as its furniture. De Sede AG is now part of the Volare Group AG and continues to handcraft its fine furniture and other goods from its factory in Klingnau.
