Carl Malmsten High Back Chair in Walnut and Black Leather


Carl Malmsten, high back chair, walnut, brass, leather, Sweden, 1940s.

Rare armchair designed by Swedish designer Carl Malmsten. This chair exhibits a warm walnut frame which is nicely visible, and the grain pattern comes out beautifully as seen for example on the armrests. The unique lines and curves of the design are striking and the small tapered legs complements its shapes beautifully. The seating is upholstered in black leather which shows a nice patina suitable for the age of these chairs. Along the outer lines the upholstery is fastened with brass nails which also functions as a decorative detail. The tufted leather backrest gives this chair a sophisticated character.

Please note that the leather shows some signs of wear and use. For further details, we encourage you to reach out to our team of design specialists.
