Rare Pair Svend Skipper Restored Papa Bear Lounge Chairs & Ottomans

Documentation Signed
Period 1950-1979
Creation Date 1950's
Description This incredibly rare pair of Danish Modern teak lounge chairs were designed by Svend Skipper in the 1950s and are reminiscent to the famous Hans Wegner ones, though at a much more affordable price point! Restored top to bottom, all the wood elements have been restored and freshly oiled, the seats restrapped with Pirelli rubber strapping, all new quality foam and a lovely felted Melton wool in a soft Heather Gray. Note the stunning channel tufting on the inside back rest with the subtle line of pinch tufts – this detail is sets these chairs apart from the Wegner ones which have only button tufting and add supremely to the comfort. The feeling of sitting in one of these chairs is almost like a child sitting in papa’s lap while getting a hug! Completed perfectly with matching ottomans with ovoid teak handles and conical legs. Such a rare and spectacular set and complete with both a pair and with two ottomans! So rare! The maker’s foil label is visible underneath. Dimensions for loungers: 31.5?W x 30.5?D x 18?H(seat)/38.5?H(top); dimensions of ottomans: 20.75?W x 11.75?D x 16.5?H. Only 1 still available with ottoman at $7500/set.
