Gebruder Thonet Tilt and Swivel Lounge Chair and Ottoman


The Gebruder Thonet 808 lounge and ottoman are a well-balanced mix of finely coordinated materials. I have been in the furniture business for 20 years and this is easily the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in. It is ergonomically unmatched. This is partially due to the way the small pull tab allows for the chair to be reclined to any position you like. It is the ultimate in luxury German engineering and style. This example is in perfect condition and is upholstered in the Grey 'Soul' fabric by Rohl. The shell is covered in a high-grade black leather. The chair swivels but also has a return mechanism. The base is solid brushed stainless steel.
