Scandinavian Modern Papa Bear High Back Lounge Chair, Sweden, 1950s



We found this scrumptious Papa Bear style chair in Stockholm on one of our buying trips. Clearly made in Sweden probably circa 1960 (the use of elm wood for the legs is typical for Swedish manufacturers), however, it is unmarked and we are unaware of the maker/designer. Probably made, circa early 1960. The Papa Bear is a great chair where style and comfort works in great harmony. It is a very comfortable and supportive chair with the angled seat and the high tufted backrest. Nice size and low wide stance. Overall very good condition but needs to get reupholstered which we can assist with at a very attractive price.
