Classic Scandinavian armchair for re upholstery.
Designed by Swedish designer Folke Ohlsson for Fritz Hansen who are best known as makers of Arne Jacobsen furniture this great design dates to the late 1950s . Its one of the few designs that was made in reasonably large enough quantities for them to be matched occasionally in to pairs .
We’ve currently got 3 in stock , all needing total re-upholstery including after some 50 years of use . This one has been stripped back , the foam replaced , and been part covered in a Fire Retardant Barrier cloth to crib 5 ( commercial use , so higher than for domestic ) , so its ready for your choice of fabric .
We’ve priced it in “as is ” condition , and our upholsterer will charge a further £150 to complete it in your own fabric , or you can use your own upholsterer .
As it has a good rake to the back it is really deep at 94cms . Definitely a chair to sit back and relax in ! We sold a pair to a customer 3 years ago re-done i Harris Tweed for a farmhouse kitchen to sit by an open fire .
Dimensions: 86cms at widest , back height 89/90cms
