European Lounge Chairs with Sculpted Wooden Legs, Europe ca 1950s

About the Item

These unique, elegant lounge chairs take stylistic inspiration from both French period and Italian modern seating designs. The design incorporates beauty, functionality, and simplicity in a way that is characteristic of the mid 20th century. Maintaining the simplicity of design while offering plenty of interesting details is the strong suit of this pair. The bodies rest on intricate wooden bases with gently curved legs that recall historical styles such as the cabriole. Yet, the legs are much shorter and the seats lower which is an essentially mid-century characteristic. The clean lines are broken with curved, smooth angles added for accent. The fully upholstered bodies accentuate these curves, especially on the arms that fold outwards. The gentle curves are also present on the top of the backrests and on the wooden bases, creating a cohesive, balanced look. There is a delicate feminity about these chairs that is exuded through the friendly and round shapes completed by the light fabric. These lounge chairs have a cosy modern style, modelled on the European furniture of the 19th century, including the round edges, the generous seat cushions, and sculpted legs. Clean lines, gentle curves and a shared modernist sensibility make them perfect for contemporary spaces. Condition: In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The chairs have been reupholstered recently in a premium fabric. Each of our items can be re-upholstered by our in-house atelier in a fabric of choice. Please reach out for more information.

  • Mongolian Shearling Easy Chair with Tapered Wood Legs, Europe ca 1950s
    Located in Utrecht, NL
    This stunning chair revolves around high-quality materials, comfort, and the mastery of the era’s European cabinetmakers. The design is focused on the aesthetics of modernism whilst employing the exquisite qualities of its upholstery. In many ways this chair transcends the word ‘modern’ thanks to its unique look. The flamboyant look is the result of the brilliant pairing of materials. The solid wood structure’s smooth lines stand out even under the highly textural shearling while also accentuating the individuality of the upholstery. The soft fibres of the lightweight, curly Mongolian shearling drape beautifully over the structure, while the warm greyish colour adds a lot of depth. As opposed to traditional shearling, Mongolian lamb/shearling (also known as shag) is a long, flouncy fur celebrated for its softness and luxurious volume. The desire to keep functionality and comfort at the core of the design is visible, especially in the gently curved and reclined back and the tapered legs. The solid wood legs’ dark colour and smoothness stands out beautifully against the lighter body, creating a balanced look. Thanks to its visual qualities, mainly the shearling’s lush texture and colour, this infinitely cosy chair...
