Mid Century Modern Find of the Week: Bruno Matthson's Pernilla 69

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.
