Tessa T4 Sling pair of armchairs authentic brown full aniline Italian soft leather with ottoman
Product Description Full:
This beautiful Australian made pair of chairs which won Australian design Awards in the 1970’s, is crafted from Teak veneer with solid Timber rails. The Tessa T4, designed by Fred Lowen for Tessa Furniture, features an appealing low profile, spacious seating, bent ply curved frame, netted hammock style sling and removable leather cushions you can expect a very comfortable and supportive seating experience and sits low like a comfortable holiday hammock feel. If you like a sinking chair but firm with a genuine leather feel then these chairs are for you. These are super comfy however you can also tighten the net to have a firmer/tighter sit and comes with one/the original (and restored) ottoman. This lovely mid century modern pair of armchairs has been fully restored including many hours and bled fingers to restore all cushions in new Aniline Italian brown leather. We believe the plywood is the teak version and features lovely curves, nylon netting, two armrests (which is the earlier version from 70s) and the classic curves that Tessa is renowned for.

PLEASE NOTE: We have the matching T4 sling 2 seater couch separately in another advertisement, however this advertisement (and price) is for both the arm chairs only (2), there is an option to buy the whole set (Pair of armchairs and 2 seater couch in a lovely red burgundy leather similar to a chesterfield chair in ox blood colour)
Overall Condition:
Cosmetic Condition:
8.5/10: Frame/wood is an 8/10 there are marks and minor chips to plywood which has been either filled to the closest colour (refer to pics and videos) or blended in as we used our home brewed (thanks Geoff) Danish oil. The timber has not gone through a full sanded restoration but why would you, the authentic and natural imperfections makes the chair look even more authentic. Cushions: 9/10: Brand new Italian full aniline leather for the cushions in a lovely brown, the straps and armrests have also been upholstered in the same leather, this took many days to upholster but we are happy with the comfort, look and feel of the upholstery. The leather we sourced was the same supplier that Tessa used directly in the latter years of their business.
Functional Condition:
Excellent, functionally no wobbles or warping in the wood. No cracks sturdy and strong, these are super comfy if you like a slight sinking feeling like a hammock, however you can also tighten the net to have a firmer sit
