This chair sold through iNVISeDGE for $240 back in 2007. Today in 2019 I’d price it at around $480. This iNVISeDGE buyer got a great investment!
Background Info and Provenance
Written in 2007
A beautiful single-seater lounge chair with the sleek modest quality of Scandinavian furniture. The manufacturer is unknown, but I would say it was either done by a small manufacturer in Australia (Avalon comes to mind) or a European firm. This teak chair from the early 1960’s has a beautifully sculptured shape with a lean, fluid profile. The refined style draws heavy influence from DANISH furniture and compares to the work of highly-respected furniture designers such as Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner. The base spring system uses a web-configuration instead of the conventional parallel layout. These springs are still all in perfect condition. They provide strength, supreme comfort and are a lot more durable than conventional springs or webbing. All joints are very sturdy and strong and show no signs of looseness, squeaks or movement AT ALL. With the attention to detail and construction qualities, these vintage pieces are now highly sought-after. This piece is also one of the most comfortable in this style I’ve had- the seat is set at the perfect angle for comfort and the HIGHER back supports your back extremely well.
Investing in vintage items is a great way to go- if a piece looks like this after almost 50 years of use the quality is irrefutable. There’s no better way to invest in your home and reduce landfill.
