Danish Modern lounge chair

I think this is an American-made chair.  The frame is walnut with a glossy varnish finish.  The Pirelli webbing had lost its stretch and was sagging, and it had no cushions at all.


I cleaned the grime and paint scuffs off the frame, put in new elastic webbing, and made new boxed, welted cushions.  The fabric is a tweedy wool boucle in a color between brown and gray with coppery flecks.  It’s a great foil for the warm tones of the wood.

One thing I liked about this chair was that it had a low profile but the seat was still at a good height for getting up out of.  I think the legs are just an inch or two taller than most chairs of this style.   It’s a subtle difference in looks that made a big difference in comfort.
