The Papa Bear Chair and ottoman are now offered in natural, lightly-cured, premium saddle leather. Used exclusively by high-end traditional European furniture-makers and saddlery-craftsmen. This golden cognac, reddish-brown leather is buttery soft and smooth to the touch. Sourced from cattle that are raised on ranches without any barb wire, the leather hides are without flaws and contain no irregularities. As the years pass the leather will gradually soften, and the chair will patina to a dark pecan color — giving it a signature look that only you could produce.
Designed in 1951 by Wegner, the Papa Bear chair and ottoman were originally manufactured by AP Stolen of Denmark and were produced until 1969. For thirty-four years the chair was out-of-production in Europe. In 2003, PP Møbler of Denmark launched the chair and ottoman into its product collection.
An internationally recognizable design, the Papa Bear has been produced by Modernica since 1994. For over sixteen years, Modernica’s master builders have been painstakingly handcrafting each chair and ottoman. Modernica follows strict adherences to the original design with regards to dimensions, frame construction, fabric pleating and materials. Making this significant design, an affordable luxury, built without any compromise to the original specifications and construction.
