1960s brown leather, swivel lounge chair and matching ottoman, Model S-231 by De Sede, Switzerland.
Very nice. Model S-231 set, by DeSede.
Itís only when you get up close and personal with a piece of De Sede that you begin to equate the top & bottom ends of the seating market. Itís only when you realise the age and vintage of this good early example, you begin to understand not only the true quality, but that good design is timeless. The set appears to have become more and more distinctively attractive with time and more attractively relaxed with age. Time & tide have paused momentarily for you to savour.
Weighty & substantial. One previous owner. Enjoyed and occasionally cleaned along with the household. The set presents in good original condition with just enough mild, general distressing and colour graduation about the piece to confirm age. Itís part of its appeal. The mechanisms to both chair and stool feel firm and tight. Nothing major to detail, no real concerns. A fine vintage example.
