Rare Guy Lefevre multi-adjustable black leather and steel lounge chair.
I’m afraid there’s not much I can tell you about Monsieur Lefevre, he’s one of the Scarlet Pimpernel’s of the design World who despite his body of work little is known about him. What we do know is that he specialised in metal work and in particular brass. He worked for many high end design houses throughout the 70’s and 80’s including Malabert, Maison Jansen and Ligne Roset. Mostly known for his minimalist and also Hollywood Regency style coffee tables and storage systems he has a couple of sets of steel dining chairs to his name and also this wonderful lounge chair.
Produced in the early 1970’s It really is a rare and sought after item and I have only seen 2 come up for sale in the last 10 years. Constructed of steel with a leather sling it is one of the most comfortable chairs you’ll ever sit in. The duck down filling cossets every part of you and in the full on sleeping position you’ll not only find it difficult to get out of elegantly but you’ll also want to stay there for the rest of your days. It has a very simple adjustable system that’s hands on; you lift the seat forwards move the bar to any one of the 6 seating positions and relax – great for sitting up in or lounging in after a hard day’s work with a tumbler of single malt.
It looks black but in certain lights appears very dark brown. There’s some beautiful patina on the leather with a little creasing as you would expect, but that just adds to its charm. It also benefits from the seat support original webbing which is in good condition and has many more years of life left yet.
