MidCentury Woven Papercord Folding Scissor Lounges


Posted on Mon Apr 09 2018

This is an exceptional pair of circa early 60s, original woven folding scissor lounge chairs – in excellent/fine, original vintage condition. Often designer mis-attributed to Hans Wegner & origin Denmark, these do share the handled detail on seat sides of frame-yet this pair was hand made in Yugoslavia of solid beech, woven with papercord, & fitted with solid brass hardware. Remarkably comfortable, these iconic Scandinavian form seating pieces integrate w/a broad range of design/decor environments, adding strong Modernist impact wherever placed. Wonderfully versatile,-they are wonderful in combination w/many functional decor elements; loose cushion,pillow, blanket, sheepskin++ & are Superb exactly as they are. The folding design of these iconic chairs 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; sound, clean, tight, solid & lacking age-commensurate wear. Photos were taken before conditioning w/Swilley’s All Natural-& are now even more fantastic. Listing price is for the pair. If purchased individually- $675. each.
