Rare Stig Poulsson 'Bequem' Lounge Chair in Cognac Leather


Stig Poulsson, lounge chair model 'Bequem', cognac leather, steel, ash, Denmark, designed 1968-1969

This 'Bequem' lounge chair is designed by Stig Poulsson. The most striking feature of this extraordinary chair is its sheer size. The width of this chair, almost a meter, is relatively large. Due to this, the chair has a stately, grand appearance. The design holds a simple, strict and clean metal frame with a horizontal ash slat with a soft, loosely hanging leather seat and leather armrests.

The chairs have been made in a very small production, only a hundred items were made. The first chairs were sold out of Mr. Poulsson’s design store in Kronprinsensgade in Copenhagen and soon thereafter, some were sold for export to US and a few European countries in selected design stores.
