Fler TV chair

Fred Lowen was a furniture designer and founding partner of Fler Furniture, creating his wonderful furniture in the 50s and 60s. Originally from Germany, Lowen was influenced by the scandinavian style. It's no wonder they are so popular today, The guy knew what was going on back then. They released a range of furniture in the 60s made from moulded timber with natural oil finishes.
Now-a-days, these chairs are popping up in all the trendy retro shops around these parts and I was lucky enough to get my hands on this oriagnal Fler TV chair at a garage sale just around the corner from my work shop. And I think that Mr. Lowen would have appreciated a little bit of tender lovin, and some new upholstery too..
