Bruno Matthson is one of the more prominent Swedish mid-century designer / architects. His most enduring works are the imaginative, highly sculpted series of bentwood chairs dating from the 1940s. The free flowing forms epitomised Scandinavian 1960s luxury furniture and pushed the use of the material.
The iconic 'Pernilla' armchair was first designed in 1944 a€“A this is an updated version designed for DUX in 1969. Changes include the addition of leather upholstery for added comfort. Continuous curves and elegant forms combine to create an object that is stunning from every angle. Every room needs a centrepiece and this sculptural chair will turn heads and impress from every angle.
Each piece is checked and carefully restored at our Kingsland studio workshop. Our focus is preserving the character and patina of the design while ensuring it displays beautifully in a contemporary interior.
