Background Info and Provenance

(Written in 2021 by my vendor in Geelong, South of Melbourne)

A PAIR of vintage ITALIAN LEATHER lounge chairs, believed to be made in Italy. Michael has not come across this design in his 20 years of trading and so we believe there is no way these chairs are Australian, we believe them to be Italian made. We believe this pair dates to the 1970’s, possibly late-1960’s.

These chairs are absolutely amazing and a clear winner in my books. The stylish sled base in a deep warm timber matched with the light fresh coloured leather, yes please! and they tick all the boxes for comfort too!

The backs are incredibly high, higher than any other lounge chair I have sat in! The back of your head sits completely flush with the top of the chair, unlike other chairs where the back is low and you rest your head staring up at the ceiling instead of at your book or telly.

The angles of the seat and back provide plush luxurious comfort, making them perfect for lounging, reading your favourite book or watching a movie. The seats are quite deep and they curve nicely to support you and to allow you to relax comfortably for extended periods of time.

The frames are solid as a rock, they are HEAVY and durable. The chairs have a bold style but the warm exposed timber and light beige leather pares back the boldness adding an element of sleek refinement.

The FULL-GRAIN VINTAGE leather is soft and smooth- the label underneath says, Pellami D’Italia which in English translates to Italian leather and the sling back is also made out of leather (as opposed to canvas which is the much cheaper option). This shows there was no expense spared in making these chairs. The quality exceeds that of ALL Parker chairs and the Norwegian designs of the same era.

The beauty of investing in vintage design is knowing how the item will stand up to use before you shell out a cent. Look at these beauties after about 40 years of use! An item like this is the epitome of a solid investment because the design is practical, DURABLE and timeless in looks. There’s no better financial investment for your home and no better way to reduce landfill- this pair will continue to tell stories long after you and I have gone!
