Poul M Jessen | swivel chair
The most impressive mellow red leather swivel desk chair on 4 finger base finished on wheels.
Designed by: Not known yet - Produced by Poul M Jessen, Viby - Year of design 1960s
This lovely swivel desk chair has so many shaped and curves that it is as much a sculpture as it is a comfortable chair.
The rolled arms continue into the bulged back which widens at the point where you need the support.
The chair has been fully restored with new internal foam and upholstered in sympathetic leather which has the colour of Chinese red. Not a bright nor a burgundy but a lovely mellow blend of the 2 and this works perfectly for the chair.
The chair swivels with ease on the ball bearing inside the stem.
Condition: All new upholstered and unmarked. Chromed base with minor signs of use consummate with age.
1 chair marked with Makers label under seat, Other chair marked with Danish furniture makers control disc.

The chair with the PMJ label has been in my ownership since 1998. I put it into storage as the foam had all perished and I did not have a competent upholsterer at that time who could do the work. I thought it best to find a 2nd chair so I would have a template to use for the work required in restoring it correctly. Little did I know that it would be 17 years until the 2nd chair appeared! A big Thank you to Tom @ Isis upholstery, Horncastle for taking up the task of bringing both chairs back to life.
