Rare Pair of 1940s Easy Lounge or Slipper Chairs Designed by Carl-Johan Boman

$8,500per set


Rare pair of easy chairs designed by Finnish Design Icon, Carl-Johan Boman for Boman Oy of Finland in the 1940s. The lounge chairs are very much in trend with the slipper chair style popular in Sweden and Finland at the time. Boman fancied organic voluptious organic designs with short shaped thick legs and low seat heights. These chairs are very playful yet elegant and rare to find. Our picker in Denmark found these on a trip to Turku in Finland the hometown of Boman Oy. Overall very good condition with some wear to the fabric but still usable condition. We offer competitive re-upholstery services on these chairs. Carl-Johan Boman studied interior architecture at the Royal College of Arts & Crafts in Berlin and later worked for his father at the Boman Furniture Factory. The company was a popular decorator for upper-class homes in Finland and also in Russia especially in the early midcentury.
