About

These super cool and laid back pair of leather 'Hunter' safari easy chairs are by Torbjørn Afdal for Bruksbo, 1960s, Sweden. Rare to find in the US, these Scandinavian Modern lounge chairs are the perfect option for someone who wants rare collectible designer items but prefers it to look casual and - amazing without trying hard. These safari lounge chairs are constructed of tufted leather cushions in a medium brown with a hint of cognac orange. The medium brown wooden frames hold the canvas sling via innovative cords weaved through the frame. Leather Safari styled straps for the arms in similar style to Arne Norell's 'Safari' chairs. The seat cushions sticks out just a bit in similar style to the Falcon chair by Sigurd Ressell. The leather has beautiful age and patina with light distressing to the straps and seats. One chair has greater distressing to the center of the seat area, this can be repaired upon request or used and enjoyed for those who love leather distressing.
