Yrjö Kukkapuro 'Skaala' Leather Lounge Chairs for Avarte, Finland, 1970s

About the Item

Incredible set of five collectible 'Skaala' lounge armchairs by Yrjo¨ Kukkapuro for Avarte, made in Finland, circa 1970. Featuring original burgundy red leather seat cushions, birch and tubular steel frames with sleigh legs capped with rubber feet. *NOTE*, we have sold 2 chairs, so we have 3 left at this time. This listing is priced individually. There is so much that make these chairs great. First, the birch wood backs and arms are so cool - making the chairs excellent to float within a room where the backs can be seen. Consider using as office guest chairs, the view of the wood backs are a great way to set a great first impression when someone enters your office. Second, the tubular chrome frames with sleigh legs are amazingly stylish. The shape is very 1970s but also works great with 1980s Postmodern and Memphis styles which are so popular right now with interior designers. Also lightweight, they are easy to grab and move - and they have arm hooks so that you can link them together if you so wish. One pair of chairs have a tubular holder, could possibly be used for a flag, thin fishing pole, or anything else that you can conjure up. Third, the soft and quality burgundy leather seats perfectly finish off the look on this set of comfortable and stylish lounge armchairs. Very collectible with beautiful patina, very designer on-trend, very stylish yet casual and laid-back for those who don't need to be flashy to be noticed. These Yrjo Kukkapuro Skalla chairs would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian Modern or Danish modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Postmodern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using this set of Yrjo¨ Kukkapura chairs as side chairs, cafe or breakfast table chairs, bedside chairs, fireside chairs, dressing or changing room chairs, hallway chairs, entryway or mudroom chairs, nursing or reading chairs, conference room chairs, office or desk chairs, guest chairs, lobby chairs, lounge chairs or occasional chairs ideal in virtually any setting.
