SOLD – Lounge set by Hans Kaufeld


What I like

I like the absolute comfort of this lounge chair and its ottoman, enhanced by the possibility of tilting the backrest using a wheel. What a pleasure to read or listen to music in this set!

I also like the quality of this thick leather, beautiful light brown color, in good condition despite rare traces of use. All workmanship is high quality.

I like the Asian-inspired shape, especially in the slight inclination of the base and the armrest supports, typical of the 1980s, totally mastered by the designer who lightens this armchair and its ottoman, whose dimensions are nevertheless very generous. !

I like the fact that this set, dating back almost forty years, is not in the least outdated: the accuracy of its lines allows it to fit in everywhere, especially since its color is warm.

Technical description

Mix & Match

The boldness of the line of this lounge set, the beauty of its light brown leather allow it to slip into many interiors: it can of course be integrated into a contemporary decoration, with large leather or fabric sofas: its color will recall that of Enrique Broglia’s abstract tapestry, Composicion metallica, from the 1970s and the brass of this tapestry will gently reflect on the leather.

Next to this armchair, and its ottoman, I can easily imagine the coffee table in bamboo marquetry attributed to Willy Rizzo: put orchids in the tray of this coffee table and the refinement will be absolute; put bottles in it, and you can sip delicious cocktails!!

In the same room, you can light the pair of Vanessa floor lamps by Angelo Brotto: the rigor is the same, but what a beautiful harmony of colors when these lamps are on!!

I would like to have on the walls the orange geometric composition by Bernard Jardel, dated 1971, which will add a tone to this interior. Or also the cuGiuseppe CUOCO, Kinetic opus, from 1973, which carries the same requirement.

But you can of course use this lounge set in the same room as the large walnut and chrome desk of the Banque de France, from the 1965s!

Finally, given the sobriety of this set, you can slip it into an interior with antique furniture, like a beautiful binding in your library!
