1971 and the Norwegians living on the fjord where the town of Sykkylven sits started a revolution when traditions of passing the family farm to the first born left the second sons to fend for themselves. It was these men, like Jens Ekornes, designers and engineers, who brought their iconic decor to the world.
Found this early Stressless chair and matching ottoman sitting amongst the 'brown wood' at an auction over the weekend... Leather like butter, unusual reddish/copper metalworks looking like it had been sitting in a museum for the last 45 years - Thanks Jens !!!
