USA, c. 1975

chrome-plated and enameled steel, chrome-plated brass, aluminum, enameled aluminum

44" high in photo, will adjust lower, but not much higher. Arm 17" long.

Condition is good. Paint loss on black grill is 1/2" at it's widest, paint loss on white interior from bulb heat, scratch on base and specks of paint loss. Not bad at all for this rare and classic mid century modern floor lamp. More photos available on request.


Arne Vodder Lounge Chair

Vary rare danish modern reclining lounge chair; FD 164 by Arne Vodder for France & Son. Early 1960's, made in Denmark. Chair has 3 recline positions and is the frame is fashioned from solid teak. 30"W X 29"D X 37"H (dimensions will vary with recline).

Condition wise this chair is very good for it's age. Some dings, scratches, etc that one with expect. The arms have some lightness to the finish from arms sitting on them. Not major. The grey/blue cushions are very good for the age. There is no "Bad Side". Some light pilling that a fabric shaver would solve. Some light soiling that a shampoo would fix. They are nice springed cushions I believe to be original. Really great to have them in this kind of shape.

From Decopedia:

Danish architect and designer Arne Vodder should be counted among the most influential Scandinavian mid-century designers. A student to famous furniture designed Finn Juhl, Mr Vodder started designing furniture for Fritz Hansen, France & Son and Sibast, the latter for which he designed a wide range of furniture which received worldwide recognition and success. His beautiful designs were nicely detailed and modest in their expression, almost without exception based on natural materials. Rosewood and teak - according to the fashion at the time - seem to have been the preferred materials, often combined with colourful panels catching the eye. Today, Vodder is perhaps most appreciated for his beautiful rosewood and teak sideboards designed in the 1950-1960's and produced by Sibast Furniture.

Mid-Century Modern, Arts and Crafts, and Art Deco are some of our favorite styles, but if it has great design and or superb artistry - it's in the door.
