This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture.

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.

The armchair shows Scandinavian Modern representative elements, like rosewood tapered legs and brass decorations. The backrest and armrests (in solid rosewood) have a gentle, natural line, avoiding sharp angles; this gives the piece a pleasant, organic look. The armchair was reupholstered in the zeitgeist of Lango's models and is in a very good condition.
This particular decanter, known as "the drunk" (because of its bent posture) is a variation of the famous Kluk-Kluk decanter which takes its name from the sound made by the liquid when poured, sound amplified by the shape of this bottle. Both the Drunken Kluk-Kluk and the classic Kluk-Kluk are very popular in Denmark and were produced by Holmegaard in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The first Kluk-Kluk designed by Jacob Bang dates from 1928 but the designer kept coming back to this. This piece presented above is designed in the second half of the 1950s.
