Greetings All
I bought these mid century boomerang lounges a few weeks back (in Germany) and have been restoring them in my free time. Basically finished and now must choose some fitting fabrics....easier said than done (i'm seeing fabric patterns when i close my eyes). The wood looks like cherry to me but i'm no expert. I've used a natural oil on them. Unfortunately any indication of producer has been taken off the chairs...anyone have an idea of origin or design?...Much appreciated.

    The wood has the same design as my arm chairs from the 50's designed by Norman bel Geddes. Mine are metal but have the same nice slope to them. Beautiful ! They look 50's, and I have seen them before at auction. Phil.

    Really nice looking chairs. You are doing a nice job on bringing them back to life.

    Similar to chairs by ( Poul Jensen ) spelling is correct
    Similar to his teak Z chair. That is what some experts say so far. Examples of his furniture are on ebay and all over the net. Phil.

    Thanks everyone. I'm still obsessing over some Designers Guild fabric but haven't made up my mind....fear of finality is getting me down.
    @PhilDavidAlexanderMorris : They do look similar (arm style) but the base seat of my chairs are 2 seperate components whereas in the Jensen chairs i've seen, the legs are part of the arms.

    Where did you find the seat springs? I've 2 Scandinavian Design chairs are very similar! Found vintage nubby fabrics, too...if you need website, I'll look it up, as it was very inexpensive.

    These look like TopForm of Holland to me. Might be worth checking out.
    Beautiful work, by the way!
