About the Item

This gorgeous restored 'S-1' living room set comprised of a pair of cognac leather lounge chairs and a three-seat sofa by Brazilian designer Percival Lafer for Lafer MP. This set was designed in 1976 and was Lafer's concept of merging Brazilian design with Scandinavian sensibility - the sling seat cushions are made of molded foam carried by Rosewood frames. Signed with Lafer labels throughout underneath seat cushions. This incredible signed collectors set is also ideal for interior designers working on high end projects as it was fully restored - Rosewood frames were refinished and joinery tightened, the original cognac leather cushions cleaned, conditioned and spot-dyed with color matched leather dye in a few areas that benefited from it. The S-1 design features Brazilian exoticness paired with Scandinavian sensibility. Of Lafer's designs, the S-1 is a bit more rare to find than some of his more common ones such as the MP-97, MP-41 and MP-25. The frames are more architectural in feel than most of his other designs, perhaps a refinement developed throughout his years of experience in this 1976 design. This slouchy, casual S-1 set of easy armchairs and three seater couch by Percival Lafer would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Post-Modern, Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, 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.
