My husband says this is the most comfortable chair he has ever “lounged” in…EVER! And it is extremely hard to find a chair that fits his six-foot three-inch frame. I say it is one of the most beautiful chairs I have ever seen, and its design is attributed to Arnt Lande for Stokke furniture manufacturer in Aalesund Norway. With that combination how could you possibly go wrong? This phenomenal reclining lounge chair is comprised of a teak frame made in the Scandinavian Modern style of the era with a reclining and adjustable scoop high back upholstered seat. Called the Combi Star Rock n’ Rest Chair. By using the side lever, it can be locked in an upright or reclining position, then when unlocked, used as a rocker. This example has been completely refinished, restored, and newly upholstered with a multi-colored (think golds and reds and greens) wavy striped fabric. It even retains its original adjustable and detachable head pillow! Plus, just look at that button detail. It would be the perfect reading and relaxing chair in any room of your home whether your style leans to mid-century modern, Scandinavian, industrial, western, or modern country.
Arnt Lande was a Norwegian furniture designer and interior designer who from the 1940s for the next four to five decades made his mark on Norwegian furniture design. Most of those years with Moller & Stokke aka Stokke Fabrikker. He was educated at the Norwegian School of Crafts and Design under architect Arne Korsmo along with fellow students and future renowned designers Ingmar Relling and Sigurd Resell.
If we can pry my husband out of this incredible chair…you should quickly make it yours!
