Vintage Molded Walnut&Leather Swivel Lounger+Otto
photographer, passionate cyclist, visual artist + all-around sporting chap
This Modernist swivel tilt lounge chair w/ottoman is a fantastic variation of the iconic mid century molded plywood lounge seating designs by Mulhauser, Eames, Cherner++. In excellent, non refurbished condition-w/no notable detractions-w/expected leather patination & age wear-NO tears, riips or cracking, this is a well-kept original. Elegantly mod, supremely comfortable & of remarkably high quality, this example was made in Canada circa mid-late 60s. The molded layered walnut ply shows gorgeous figural grain & rich tones and zero damage. The top-grain black leather is smooth, supple & intact; wonderfully aged, with expected age-commensurate appearance and condition-with minor, expected superficial scratches. Leather conditions beautifully w/Leather Honey application, bi-annually.
Handsome, flat, intact stitching complements the untufted leather upholstery. All elements are in sound functioning order & lovely appearance; no cracks, rust, tears, odors, repairs or else. All original glides are present on the 5-point propellor chair & 4-point ottoman bases. The powder coated steel has no scratches, dings, paint loss, rust or else. This is a fine, clean & seldom encountered example of an iconic mid20C Modernist seating form. Equally matched high quality design & production values are present throughout the form, materials & mechanism. This not a lightweight or replica chair, but a high quality, vintage original.
The dimensions & design enhance versatility of placement; working well across a broad range of design/decor styles & settings.
