Ulferts Fabriker lounge chair from Sweden

ulferts1This once-handsome chair was made by Ulferts Fabriker in Tibro, Sweden, according to the tag.

 

ulferts2Reupholstered in Maharam/Kvadrat’s Hallingdal wool hopsack, it’s ready for the next few decades!

 

ulferts3The original wool fabric was completely worn through in places and the foam of course was shot.  The teak frame had some scuffs and was a little dull and grimy but not nearly as bad as the fabric.

 

ulferts4It’s surprising what a little teak oil and #0000 steel wool can do.

 

ulferts7I couldn’t find much about this company online.  Obviously they exported some things to the U.S. because this label is American.

 

ulferts5This is colorway 227.  It looks darker on Maharam’s website.  It has golden brown yarns in one direction and light heather gray in the other.   I think it looks gorgeous with the old teak.

 

ulferts6One of the things I really like about this chair is how square it is but with most of the lines softened by just a bit of curve.  It has a really solid look without being hard at all.  Very appealing!
