Antique Art Deco Armchairs – the pleasure of sitting
Every so often a design is just right. All the elements come together and it looks as good as it feels.
Well that is the design of antique swedish art deco armchairs. Coming out of first the Biedermeiermeier period and then the Jugent/Arts and crafts movement, Swedish Art Deco armchairs and other furniture created an entirely new modernistic vision of how life should be.
Coming out of the devastation of the 1st world war, Art Deco was a brave look to the further and an attempt to break from a painful past. To show that there was a positive vision for life and that things could only get better.
A brave New World to misquote ‘Aldous Huxley’ coinciding with the hedonism of the Berlin of the 1920s and flapper culture in general.
Let the good times roll was the motto – after getting that close to apocalypse you can understand why people just wanted to party.
The construction of antique swedish art deco armchairs was exemplary. Really solid frames, fully sprung artisan made seats with 5 inch copper coil springs, webbed backs for added comfort and the beautiful bentwood golden birch arms in a variety of french polish colour tones from light honey to darker oak to black ormolu style finishes.
