Stig Petersen Rare Grand Leather Chairs


Stig Petersen, lounge chair 'Bequem', cognac leather, steel, ash, Denmark, design 1968-69, production 1980s. This grand set of 'Bequem' lounge chairs is designed by Stig Petersen for Stig P. The most striking feature of this extraordinary set is its sheer size. The width of this chair, almost a meter, is relatively large. Due to this, the chairs have a stately, grand appearance. The set holds a simple, strict and clean metal frame with a horizontal ash slat with a soft, loosely hanging leather seat and leather armrests. The chairs have been made in a very small production, only a hundred items were made. The first chairs were sold out of Mr. Petersen's design store in Kronprinsensgade in Copenhagen and soon thereafter, some were sold for export to US and a few European countries in selected design stores in Mr. Petersen's acquaintances.
