Danish 1940s Flemming Lassen Attributed High Back Lounge Chair

$7,500Asking Price

About

Beautiful Flemming Lassen attributed high back lounge chair made, circa 1940. This iconic lounge chair is probably one of the most perfect high backs ever designed. Perfect statement piece with its ultra-elegant sensual shape yet very comfortable and supportive design. Frame built from solid beech with hand-tied copper springs built to last. The legs show minor age wear includes minor nicks. The chair is in overall very good condition but needs to get re-upholstered. We do offer re-upholstery services and are able to offer re-upholstery in any fabric including white or beige merino lambswool resembling shearling. The chair is attributed to Flemming Lassen due to a book published in 1947 (Litterature: Sigvard Bernadotte & Johs Lehm-Laursen, "Dansk Boligkunst 1947", bd. II) where a picture on page 212 featuring Lassen's own home happens to also show the chair although with a slightly different front leg design.
