Our range of seating including sofas, armchairs and dining chairs, lounge chairs, ottomans, etc. We talk, of course, about authentic Mid-Century seating furniture. A chair is a piece of furniture with a raised surface supported by legs, commonly used to seat a single person. Chairs are supported most often by four legs and have a back. Chairs are made of a wide variety of materials, ranging from wood to metal to synthetic material (e.g. plastic), and they may be padded or upholstered in various colors and fabrics, either just on the seat (as with some dining room chairs) or on the entire chair. A chair without a back or arm rests is a stool, or when raised up, a bar stool. A chair with arms is an armchair; one with upholstery, reclining action, and a fold-out footrest is a recliner. A permanently fixed chair in a train or theater is a seat or when hung from above, a swing. An upholstered, padded chair for two people is a ‘loveseat’, while if it’s for more than two person it’s a couch, sofa, or settee; or if is not upholstered, a bench. A separate footrest for a chair, usually upholstered, is known as an ottoman, hassock, or pouffe. (wikipedia.org)

  • Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    Set of 4 “MR” armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    ,
    Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The armchairs are made of tubular steel and black natural leather and are preserved in a very good shape. The architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the best-known exponents of International Style modernism. His "less-is-more" philosophy has become a catchphrase for much twentieth-century design, though a preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscores the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs. Mies van der Rohe was the last director of the Bauhaus design school in Dessau, from 1930 until its closing in 1932. In 1938 he left Germany for America, where he headed the architecture department at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The graceful, elegant, and beautifully proportioned "MR" armchair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered chair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. (When asked why he created chairs with generously sized seats, Mies van der Rohe allegedly replied that he designs chairs he’d be most comfortable sitting in.) The MR Armchair is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. It was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978. In 1968 the Knoll group took the license to manufacture these chairs but both before 1968 and afterwards many factories have in fact produced these iconic pieces.

  • Set of 4 Wiesner-Hager chairs, Austria, 1970s
    Set of 4 Wiesner Hager chairs, Austria, 1970s

    Set of 4 Wiesner-Hager chairs made in Austria in the 1970s

    ,
    Very well preserved set of 4 Wiesner Hager chairs made in Austria in the 1970s. Plywood with cherry wood veneer and a tubular steel cantileverd structure. They have the original fabric upholstery. The chairs have an ergonomic shape, featuring organic, curved lines, but an overall industrial design look, being that kind of furniture items that are as much about function as style. Wiesner-Hager was founded by Josef Wiesner as a carpentry business in 1849. In the year 1921 Rudolf Wiesner and Sebastian Hager took over their father’s business, which was at that time purely a carpentry and construction company. With the restructuring of part of the construction business into a furniture manufacture the two lay the cornerstone for a second branch of the business. Now, due to major changes in the working world and the enormous upheavals in the office and properties branch, the furniture offering has been expanded since the noughties to include the services of office consulting and interior design: Concept orientation has become a key success factor. With an export quota of 50% Wiesner-Hager is currently one of the most renowned companies in the furniture branch in Europe.

    ,
    Beautiful Space Age armchair made in Denmark in the 1950s. The piece is made of solid wood with natural cherry veneer treated with wax. The shape features the iconic Space Age design lines. The curved wood armrests, the oblique seat and the flattered legs are stylized in a manner specific to some of the best-known designers of that period, Charles and Ray Eames. The velour upholstery is typical for the 1950s and is attached to metallic targets. The Space Age is a time period encompassing the activities related to the Space Race, space exploration, space technology, and the cultural developments influenced by these events. The Space Age is generally considered to have begun with Sputnik (1957). During the 1950s, architecture, furniture, interior design, cars, and gadget design took on a curiously spaceflight-inspired aesthetic.

  • Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs
    Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs

    Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs made in Sweeden, in the 1980

    ,
    Pair of Swedish Gemla Mobler chairs. The structure and the armrests - made of curved wood - give a natural, organic and pleasant shape. This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture. This chairs can fit any nice interior, having the ability to create a warm atmosphere in the room. The chairs are in very good shape with only few age-related traces. At Helge River in Diö, in the heart of the old forests of Småland, lies Sweden's oldest furniture factory (founded in 1861). Its inner sanctum, beech and ash are tamed into time- less furniture by skilled craftsmen who know which way the wood likes to bend. Stretching and flexing, easing and teasing, until the steaming hot wood finds its form. And the wood will not be rushed. The transformation from log into chair takes days, sometimes even weeks. The technique has been used by boat and fence builders since ancient times but was refined in the mid 1800's by Thonet into the iconic chair, worn my millions of seats in the cafés of Europe. The shape is determined by the best and the brightest of their time. Back then their names were Peter Celsing, Yngve Ekström, Sigurd Lewerentz and Carl Malmsten. Now they are Jonas Bohlin, Front, Lisa Hilland and Mats Theselius.
