Pair of Mid-Century Modern Swedish Lounge/Slipper Chairs, Sven Staaf, 1950s
Gorgeous pair of shearling Swedish modern lounge or slipper chairs. Newly upholstered in a chic honey sheepskin with new cushioning. Each chair sits on four lacquered birch legs – the two back legs are angled, making for a slightly titled backrest.
