Sold ItemsPair 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.
Furniture, Special Discounts, TablesCoffee table made in Norway, late 60s. The counter-top is made of veneered wood; the legs are made of stainless steel with hard plastic clogs.

The minimalist shape, the dialogue between wood and stainless steel, the curved edges, the line of the counter-top, all of this make this table a leading exponent of Scandinavian Modern style.
