Franz Xaver Lutz 'Chimney' Chair in Original Black Leather
Franz Xaver Lutz for WK Verband, 'Chimney' chair, darkened oak and patinated black leather, Germany, 1958. This chair by Franz Xaver Lutz bears strong resemblances to Spanish and Scandinavian hunting chairs. The design is aptly named 'chimney' chair as this type of lounge chair is often used to relax by a fireplace. The slightly sloped leather is designed for low, comfortable seating. The frame is solid oak and the two front legs rise slightly upwards and more foreward than the frame.
