New vintage chairs
It's fleamarket season again and I'm happy to say that despite a growing interest in mid-century items around here, it's still possible to get ones hands on some nice pieces. This first chair is marked Svein Bjørneng, Østre Gausdal (Norway). It has a teak frame and charcoal gray wool upholstery. I tried doing some research on it and I think it might be designed by Thorbjørn Afdal for Svein Bjørneng.
This second one I found a few weeks back at my local thrift store. It's a Falcon Chair, designed by Sigurd Resell for Vatne (Norway). I think this is a later version of the chair - possibly late 70s/early 80s? If you're looking for stylish yet very comfortable lounge/easy chairs, I can recommend these!
And the last chair in this post is something as classical as a wooden rocking chair. I've been dreaming of a Mademoiselle one, but this will have to do until the day may come when I get my hands on the real thing :-)
