Yellow Leather Lawrence Peabody for Selig Danish Modern Danish Lounge Chairs

About the Item

Pair of Mid-Century Modern Number 596 lounge chairs designed by Lawrence Peabody for Selig. Professionally reupholstered in full grain flaxen-yellow leather. These timeless lounge chair exudes the quintessential Mid-Century Modern style that has inspired countless imitations and variations on the theme. Sleek, subtle, sculpted, sloping lines give this chair an unmistakably Scandinavian Modern profile. Today’s designers have mimicked this look in countless contemporary creations, but failed to improve on the perfection of this original. Our restoration team invested countless hours in this restoration. Both chairs were completely disassembled, lock-pins tightened, and reassembled to ensure rock solid stature. The original dark stain on these solid beech wood frames was stripped and refinished in light sandalwood color that we custom blended to compliment the leather. Finally, full grain leather upholstery was stitched over new foam cushions. Support straps have all been replaced and maintain tight elasticity. Both chairs bear the maker’s seal, “made and finished in Denmark, imported by Selig.” 30″ Wide x 32″ Deep x 27″ High (16″ seat height)
