ABOUT
An unusual retro armchair from the 1960’s with attractive wooden arm facings made from ash, newly upholstered in a contemporary geometric fabric that accentuates the chair’s clean lines. A great example of the mid century modern aesthetic. Perfect for stylish lounging about…

PERIOD
This piece was purchased in an online auction but the auction house knew very little about its origins. However, after extensive research, it appears to be Scandinavian in origin and judging from the patina of the show wood on the arms and legs, it dates from the 1960’s. The detail of the arm facings is rare, therefore making the chair stand out from other armchairs of this era.

MATERIALS
Chair frame - oak; legs – beech; arm facings – ash; brass; coir fibre stuffing; foam; wool felt; fabric.

CONDITION
Excellent: fully restored in 2018.

THE STORY BEHIND THE PIECE
This chair was found in an online auction. It had its original upholstery (black vinyl and pale green velvet) but needed a complete facelift. It has been fully restored by a professional upholsterer. We chose a striking geometric fabric from renowned British company, Linwood, that accentuates the clean lines of the chair’s design. The seat, back and arms have been restored. The show wood has been treated with teak oil to bring out the wood’s rich natural tones. The brass ferrules (the feet) are original and have been cleaned and waxed.

OTHER DETAILS
The legs are original and made from beech and the arm facings are made from ash. The new fabric is by Linwood (Tango Weaves / Bolero / Parakeet). It has a Martindale Rub Test of 36,000 (the minimum for general domestic upholstery is 20,000), so is very durable. The fabric has been treated with a fire retardancy application and passes BS5852 Part. 1 ign 0 Cigarette & ign. 1 Match.
