A stunning Mid-Century 'Kroken' Chair that was initially designed by Ake Fribytter. Designed in the 70s, these chairs kept their popularity and still are an excellent piece to have. The Kroken lounge chair, produced initially from the Swedish manufacturer Nelo Mobel, combines extraordinary design with excellent seating comfort and top materials.
The wooden frame has been restored and sealed while the chair and footrest have been reupholstered with fabric in a shade of Royal blue from Hertex Fabrics. This Kroken armchair is in good condition. The outer lining (underneath the blue) was kept as found as it was still in excellent condition. New leather strings were used to fasten the seat and footrest seat.
Mid-Century Sideboard is sold separately here.
Armchair: 74cm W X 51cm D X 95cm H
Footrest: 60,5cm W X 54cm D X 36,5cm H
As with most Mid-Century pieces, it is a good combination of solid wood and a high-quality wood veneer. The quality, old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason, it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on the workmanship, condition and thickness of the veneer itself.

Although all effort is made to refurbish our furniture to best represent their original state, it must be noted that most of the items we source date between the 1950s to the late 1970s. For this reason and although restored, signs of their vintage condition & age might still be visible. We will normally point out any visible/notable concerns.
