For our first Mid Century Modern Find of the Week, we’re showing you this Pernilla 69 chair, designed by Bruno Mathsson and produced by Swedish manufacturer DUX. I consider it a truly iconic mid century chair, but one that not a lot of people know about (probably because they don’t sell it at DWR).
This Swedish modern Pernilla high back lounge chair has a beech frame and leather upholstery.
Its tall, structural back not only creates beautiful bentwood lines but offers back support and ergonomic comfort.
This chair is covered in original button-tufted black leather which snaps in place to a canvas lined back. It is in excellent original condition with typical wear for its vintage.
