MidCentury Woven Papercord Folding Scissor Lounges


Posted on Tue May 08 2018

This is an exceptional pair of circa early 60s, original woven folding scissor lounge chairs – in excellent/fine, original vintage condition. Often mis-attributed to Hans Wegner & origin Denmark, these scissor loungers were hand made in Yugoslavia, but do share the handled design of a Wegner frame. Solid Beeech, woven with Danish papercord, & fitted with solid brass hardware, these combine high quality craftsmanship w/striking mid 20C functional design form. Remarkably comfortable, these iconic seating pieces integrate w/a broad range of design/decor environments. Wonderfully versatile,-they are wonderful in combination w/many elements; loose cushion,pillow, blanket, sheepskin exactly as they are. The folding design makes it possible to stash them away if desired, but they are truly full-time/full function, beautiful seating elements. There are no flaws to note in any aspects of either lounge chair; Both are sound, clean, tight, w/nominal age-commensurate wear. Photos were taken before conditioning w/Swilley’s All Natural-& are now fully nourished.They're great. Listing price is for the pair. If purchased individually- $675. each.
