Beautiful “Kurva” lounge chair designed by Yngve Ekström, manufactured by Swedese in Sweden in 1953.

This wonderful, elegant chair is the precursor to the famous Lamino chair, also designed by Ekström. As the name suggests, this chair is designed in a lovely curvy way that provides excellent seating comfort as well as a beautiful style! It has a black wooden frame and high quality cognac leather upholstery. This combination of materials creates a very nice contrast that makes the features of each material truly stand out!

The chair remains in good, vintage condition. Some parts of the frame have been professionally repainted. The upholstery is completely original, giving the piece a stunning vintage patina.
