Percival Lafer Rosewood & Leather MP-163 Earth Scoop Chair with Ottoman


FREE Shipping on most orders.


Percival Lafer Brazilian Modern MP-163 “Earth” lounge chair with ottoman. The scoop style and high-back design cradles and supports the body all the way up to the head. To put it simply, it has a “gangster lean”. The scoop allows your butt to sink down with a slight elevation of your legs. High enough for tall people to have head support, and low enough for short people to have their feet planted firmly on the floor. It’s a time-capsule quality chair & ottoman that should be in the museum of Brazilian Modern Design. Procured from the original owner who purchased in Oregon in the late 1970s, where it sat virtually untouched for decades.

This reddish cognac leather is really the quintessentially perfect color for the style and tone of the solid rosewood frames. As tasteful and inviting today as it was 4 decades ago, the diamond-sewn and pinch-tufted upholstery drips with texture and character. This parquet patchwork of square, interlocking panels covers the fronts, while the back has a smoother curve of stretched leather that nestles onto the frame. The leather has been thoroughly cleaned and conditioned. The color and texture are uniform throughout with no visible discoloration.

Complete matching living room group with any of our Percival Lafer end tables, coffee table or sofa — sold separately. Please inquire for details and pricing.

Barely influenced by northern European design compared to most of his colleagues in his early days as a designer, Lafers’ work has always been traced back to his Brazilian roots. The diffuse use of local woods, the strength and hardness of his elegant designs and the warm colors of his fabrics and leathers, make him a fundamental figure in the evolution and affirmation of Brazilian design, both inside and outside the country’s borders.
