Where to begin...?
This Folke Ohlsson Lounge Chair is one of our most proud restoration results to come through our collection.
The amount of time and meticulous work that went into this piece will surely be appreciated by its new owners.
We spared no expense when it came to materials, process and even down to the finishing oil. Read the details below.
Starting off with a stunning display of Scandinavian modernism are the solid Beech frames featuring beautifully sculpted lines. Finished in a high quality, natural, 0% VOC oil imported from Belgium. This protects the wood very well, while allowing the woods’ natural glow and raw yet smooth texture to come through.
Covering the chair and ottoman is the Elegant Divina Melange Wool bringing in the richness of dark Olive Green mixed with Forest tones. (All new foam underneath)
This chair is incredibly comfortable to sit in and hits you in all the right spots for support. One of the added benefits to the chair is the wide seat entry point of 22”.
Custom made well proportioned pillow with matching wool and weighted straps allowing it to be adjusted up and down or to be removed with ease.
To cap this chair off are the special ordered brass hole covers which matched the original style very well.
Stamped just on the underside of the back crossbar of the chair is the “design patent pending” stamp (we intentionally left untouched) which was imprinted on this early Ohlsson model. It represents the first years that the chair was being produced (late 1950’s) before the patent was officially approved and then Dux subsequently began imprinting their makers marks on the chairs after that.
These early editions are hard to come by, even more so fully restored. We felt the need for this chair to be brought back to life in its entirety, so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
