Kurt Olsen 221 papa bear chair with ottoman Denmark 1955





Amazing 221 papa bear chair with ottoman designed by Kurt Olsen and manufactured by Slagelse Mobelvaerk in Denmark in 1955. Both fully restored to pristine condition. The wood has been expertly refinished, and the chair has been reupholstered in a beautiful, soft off-white bouclé fabric. This chair isn’t just about appearances, it’s incredibly cozy for unwinding and taking it easy. It carries an iconic Scandinavian modern design that’s well-loved. The chair’s sturdy frame is constructed from solid teak wood, and it has been freshly upholstered using high-quality boucle fabric. This choice of material gives the chair an irresistibly soft and snug feel, adding to the overall comfort.


The blend of the wood’s natural warmth with the crisp off-white fabric creates an eye-catching contrast, a hallmark of Danish modern design. So, if you’re seeking a generously sized, incredibly comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing lounge chair with a touch of Danish charm, this piece is an exceptional choice.


Like all our upholstered pieces these can also be newly upholstered to your admiration. Ask our experienced upholstery department for an affordable quote for the item you want customised. We only use the best quality fabrics, foam, and materials for all our items. With the reupholstery we will always keep the originality in mind so the piece doesn’t lose its value and will be ready for years of use again.
