In the next few days- I was going to post the details of a set of three Bruno Mathsson mid-century modern chairs (2 Evas and one Pernilla/Miranda chaise). My parents have finally decided to declutter the cottage- and get some more practical seating. I was going to take pictures of the actual chairs- and get them ready- but, then a friend asked a favor- so this got rushed.
Here is a picture of the Eva- pretty much the way my parents’ chairs look-
they have 2 of them. (the detailed photos of the actual two chairs are now here: http://esrati.com/evachairs/ ) Asking $800 each or $1,500 for the two. SOLD!
The Pernilla chaise is black webbing, with the black leather head rest and arm cushions. The foot rest has one strap that’s worn, and the webbing is all faded from the sun. Here is the best picture of the style- I could find.They are asking $2500.
One of my readers will have some amazing examples of pristine Swedish design, with the caveat that Esrati sat here. (I’m only joking- but, yes- I sat in them a lot growing up).
Then a friend is moving and asked me to spread the word about this amazing Divan- a one-of-a-kind piece she’d like to unload to someone who recognizes fine furniture.
It sounds like a dessert, but the Dulce de Leche Divan by Trevor O’Neil is a contemporary sofa that’s both stylish and eco-friendly. Made of recycled cork and birch, this sofa is simple and contemporary in design. Besides neutral/natural colors (it looks almost unfinished) clean lines with rounded soft edges make this an inviting seat, although with no back it’s probably not the best for real relaxing — sit up straight! Only available in the one color scheme, and notice the handy built-in end tables on either side.
