February 2023 update: I have no new information on who designed or produced these chairs but I also quit researching them years ago. There may be new information somewhere on the internet by now but I’ll leave that to others to research.
I got a set of six of these handsome Swedish chairs about four years ago and in all that time I never took a ‘before’ photo of them! The seats were shot and the original lacquer finish was badly chipped and scuffed. The legs on some of them were discolored from standing in water. They had to be refinished completely.
I’ve researched the design at various times and have never found any information on the manufacturer or designer, if there even was an individual who came up with the design. It seems to be a somewhat rare chair. I’m guessing it dates to the 50s but I don’t know for sure.
The frames are solid beech; the backrests are teak-veneered plywood. Very Scandinavian!
I love the sides.
There are two armchairs and four side chairs.
Thank you to Home Anthology for allowing me to take photos at their store.
