Swedese Lamino Chair - Oiled Oak & Moonlight Sheepskin

Beautiful, simple, comfortable... and beloved. When a Swedish interior magazine asked its readers to pick 'the furniture design of the century', they chose the Lamino chair: an original design by Swe­dese’s founder Yngve Ekström, first created in 1956.

Nature’s own materials and masterful craftsmanship have resulted in a piece of furniture as attractive today as it’ll be for future generations. When Yngve Ekström designed the Lamino chair in 1956, he did it with the human being in focus, which makes it as pleasant to sit in as it is to look at. 

The oiled oak and Moonlight sheepskin Lamino chair is still made by skilled craftsmen in Vaggeryd, southern Sweden.

Swedese was founded in 1945 by the two brothers Yngve and Jerker Ekström and Bertil Sjöqvist, with Yngve leading the company until his death. The present owner of Swedese is Anna Johansson and Julio Patino. The headquarters are located to Vaggeryd in Småland, Sweden, where one of the factories can be found. The second factory is located in Äng, a small village outside Nässjö, Sweden.

Ekström's legacy is far greater than the Lamino alone. An architect, woodworker, and furniture designer, Yngve developed his own minimalist aesthetic of smooth curves and clean lines. Always prioritising comfort and simplicity, his style ensured many of his furniture icons would stand the test of time.

“To have designed one good chair might not be a bad life’s work!” he had said, many years earlier.

With colleagues like Aalto, Mathsson, Jacobsen and Kjaerholm, Yngve Ekström was part of the post-war modern movement that made the concept “Scandina­vian Modern” world-famous. His furniture is represented in many permanent collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

We always have a Swedese Lamino chair and footstool on show in our Ledbury shop. Come and take a seat and see how comfortable the Lamino is!
