An original 1970s "Pernilla" armchair and footstool by Bruno Mathsson. In steam-bent beechwood with white canvas covers and leather trim it is fantastically comfortable, the graceful shape perfectly fitting the human form.

"Although bearing a strong similarity to designs by [Alvar] Aalto, Mathsson's "Pernilla" lounge chair exudes a greater sense of luxury." 1000 Chairs, Taschen, p. 172.

Both chair and footstool are in good vintage condition. Structurally there are no defects whatsoever. The canvas is in excellent condition with only very minor signs of age.

Bruno Mathsson's manufacturer mark is stamped to the rear of the chair.
