This is our new chair that I entioned yesterday. Its 1960s, Italian made, designed by the Swedish designer Yngve Ekström. It’s quite small as you can see from me sitting on it. Absolutely love it!
The guy that we bought it from used his private flat as his showroom and it was the most stunning place ever! Just crammed full of post-war furniture and homewares. He was a really nice guy too and I sort of said to him to keep an eye out for tiled coffee tables (I am obseesed with 50s/60s tiled coffee tables). Lets hope for our bank balance’s sake that he doesn’t actually come up with anything – because I would find it very hard to resist!
Here’s a picture of the same chair, but without a back cushion, which is how they are usually sold:
