Carl Gustaf Hiort Wingback Chair in Red and Grey Upholstery

About the Item

Carl Gustaf Hiort af Ornäs, lounge chair, fabric and oak, Finland, 1940s. This sensuous wingback armchair has a curved back, little wings and tapered oak legs. The chair leans slightly backwards and has curved armrests, a buttoned back and is both playful and quirky. This chair is typical for the design of Hiort, as the chair is refined, well-finished and features traditional details. The fabric of this chair is in good condition but if you wish to reupholster this chair please ask one of our advisors for more information on the options that our in-house upholstery studio can offer you. Carl Gustaf Hiort (1911-1996) was a Finnish-Swedish interior designer who was based in Helsinki. Hiort was the head of his own production company, Puunveisto, in Helsinki from the 1940s-1970s. Hiort payed much attention to detail and to craftwork, he was a strong advocate of handcrafted furniture of high quality, much like Danish furniture of the same period. Technique wise, he was ahead of his time as he worked with new materials such as plywood at a very early stage. Please note that we advise reupholstery before use. This item might contain some threadbare upholstery with loose seams and small stains. Reupholstery can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsmen and -women in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece contains its value and is ready for the many years to come. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts for further information about the endless possibilities our restoration and upholstery atelier has to offer. Of course, a locally organized reupholstery is possible as well.
