Swedish 1950s Iron and Leather Lounge Chair

1950s
Sweden
Painted iron, leather
36 1/2″ high x 22 3/4″ wide x 34″ deep (seat height 13 1/2″)

An unusual and elegant iron lounge chair upholstered in supple button-tufted leather.

A handful of mid-20th century European furniture designers seemed to attain a kind of calligraphic beauty in their designs made of bent iron. The unknown designer of this piece took full advantage of the medium to create a kind of fluid sketch out of the lines of welded iron. The leather upholstery is new, but we have left the original painted surface as we found it.
