Restored Jens Risom Style Compass Leg Scoop Lounge Armchair and Ottoman

Out of stock


This one is a head scratcher. We are completely stumped on the maker of this late 50’s scoop style lounge chair and ottoman. It looks like similar work by Adrian Pearsall and Jens Risom, but it’s not. At first, the arms and legs appeared to be walnut, but now we’re thinking it’s English Chestnut. That led us to believe that maybe this was a piece by G-Plan, but nothing out there seems close. Never-the-less, the set is beyond amazing.

We purchased this lounge chair and ottoman from the original estate. The Florida waterfront home was a veritable living catalog for Brown-Saltman and other high end furnishings. This piece is no exception.

The key to any restoration is making improvements without making it look as though anything has been done. This piece now looks like a museum installation. Every inch was stripped down and rebuilt to ensure many more decades of comfort and style. New foam, webbing and period appropriate blue tweed fabric (in both chair and otto) have been expertly crafted and tailored by our 30 year experience in-house upholsterer. The English chestnut has been completely re-finished and looks stunning.
