Magnificent set of 3 De Sede club chairs

Beautiful club chair ensemble by Robert & Trix Haussmann. Designed in 1962 as part of the Swiss Design Collection, the furniture was intended to have the comfort of the classic Chesterfield armchair, but with a lighter appearance.
The chrome feet pay homage to modernity.

Quote Robert Haussmann: "This club chair has the charm of someone who has aged gracefully. And creates this inimitable ambience of the usual noblesse".... .
An originality that remains, with the quality and substance to be something special today and tomorrow.

    Haussmann was right in his quote from the 1960s...the charm of aging gracefully.
    When he said this sentence, the term patina was still a long way off for this model.
    It is all the nicer that now, about 60 years later, these traces in the form of scratches, abrasions, leather folds, iridescent brown & cognac tones in the leather openly show that age and give the pieces character, .. like no new leather furniture can. The natural, lively color of cognac in particular is able to underline this allure and charm, which few other color shades can achieve.
    The leather and the armchairs have lived and been loved. A tear on one armrest has been taped and reinforced, and a seam has been re-stitched somewhat workable over the years. Traces that may well be present after 60 years. We disassembled the armchair as far as possible, polished the chrome frame, cleaned all piping seams, buttonholes and the leather itself, and re-nourished and made supple again with high-quality leather grease. The patina was of course preserved.

In addition to the look, which is absolutely adorable, the armchairs also impress with their very comfortable seating.
As a set, it is also wonderful to group around a table, as well as solitaire pieces in different places.
