Classic mid century modern Bambi armchair designed by Rolf Rastad and Adolf Relling for Gustav Bahus in Norway circa 1950s. This iconic Bambi design is exceptionally crafted in afromosia (African teak)with long and slender tapered legs and clean curved lines for a Classic Scandinavian Modern aesthetic. The back curves dramatically extend to the armrests for a supportive and ergonomic posture making it ideal for more extended periods of seating or relaxing after a workday. The seat and back have the original patina on the cane which adds a beautiful character to the chair or it can be re-canned by our professional craftsmen. This chair versatility makes it a great addition as a side chair in your den, bedroom, or office and will work in many design styles. Cane has a few broken pieces but overall in good working condition.
