About this item

An incredibly rare complete and original Falcon lounge set by Mid century Norwegian designer Sigurd Ressell for Vatne Mobler. This set is literally the best of the best as regards Ressell’s Falcon chairs and dates fron the very start of the production of these chairs in 1971. Featuring the original chrome frames (the frames were downgraded to lighter laminate wooden frames in 1974) these are the high back version of the chair design in tan leather that also comes equipped with the very rarely seen arm rests, matching foot stools and the original riven slate topped coffee table - everything therefore shown in the pictures is included in the price.

Owned from new by the same family since the start of production in 1971 it’s clear this set has been truly loved and very well looked after. As such it has the perfect amount of age related patina that adds to the appeal: the leather is warm coloured and soft with the subtle changes in colour that you look for in vintage aniline leather; the buckles and straps have wear and marks from adjusting the seat to the perfect seating position and finally the table has some small marks and small nibbles on the top edge from social gatherings and no doubt many vibrant parties.

All in all it’s an outstanding and incredibly comfortable and accommodating set that would become a centrepiece in any home - the ‘Falcons’ hang in the air with their high backs accentuating the wing like look of the bird of prey they are named after and as such add real presence to a room.

They are presented in very good vintage condition commensurate with their age. There are marks and wear as you would expect given the set is now nearly 50 years old but there are no holes or tears in any of the leather and no rust or flaking of any of the chrome – and although the table does have a few minor marks to the top edge there are no major chips out of the main edge or any major scratches or marks.
