Bruno Mathsson Lounge Chair "Pernilla" in Bluegrey Sheepskin

About the Item

NOTE! The first image in Dove Blue is for color of the lounge chair only. The actual chair offered is dressed in Off White sheepskin in pictures BUT this has been replaced sheepskin in Dove Blue due to age and tear of the original skin. The replacement skin is bought in Sweden by DUX recommended manufacturer. The head pillow remains in natural color as per original (and not in blue as per first image). Bruno Mathsson work on the "Pernilla Chair" (designed in 1933) eventually lead to several different versions of his original idea. In 1944 he designed the "Pernilla Chaise" Lounge chair. It was unlike the previous versions. The design of this chair was more complex as the transitions between multiple bent pieces split apart into different directions than in the previous (one-direction) "chair versions". Also the tapering of the feet in the design of the Chaise was the first in the Pernilla series of chairs. After taking a hiatus from furniture design and pursue work in architecture, Mathsson returned to furniture design in the 1960s and decided to collaborate with the Swedish manufacturer Dux, who released the "Pernilla 69", upholstered in more modern leather, in 1969. The Pernilla chair and lounge is still highly appreciated furniture pieces in Scandinavia and are continuously reupholstered for continued use.
