Pair of Otto SCHULZ armchairs – Newly upolstered in beige curly shearling – Second half of the 20th century Otto Schulz was Swedish interior designer, furniture designer, publisher and operator of the by him founded furniture company BOET in Gothenburg.
Schulz is born in Germany and moves to Sweden in 1907. His company BOET is not just a furniture store, it has also a showroom in which customers can be inspired. In the 1920s he publishes the eponymous living magazine BOET, also as Platform for his own collection. The magazine is at the time the most influential, in regular edition appearing magazine in Sweden and often includes Interviews with well-known designers and architects. Schulz produces opulent upholstered furniture, as well as lavishly inlaid, decorative Box furniture between functionalism and traditionalism. He has some of his own invented techniques patented, including the use of decorative nails as part of the design, called Bopoint.
Pair of “Gamla Berlin” chairs by Carl Malmsten newly upholstered in natral white curly shearling – leather piping.
These “Old Berlin” chairs are among Swedish icon, Carl Malmsten’s rarer models. The wood, the beautiful upholstery, and Malmsten’s timeless design makes this model a beautiful representation of Sweden’s mid-century design history. This model, like many of Malmsten’s “count chairs”, it is a simplified version of the armchair “Jonas Love”, which Carl Malmsten designed for the New York World Fair in 1939. “Break all edges thoroughly”, was a frequent instruction on Carl Malmsten’s drawings and nature was his great source of inspiration, therefore sharp edges or corners can rarely be found on his designs, including this easy chair. With a tremendous sense of proportion, this chair is very comfortable and fulfil its task to “serve well” and last for lifetimes. This Gamla, or Old Berlin chair stands out for the way in which the upholstered seat leaves the back legs exposed, without any visible joinery. The wooden tapered legs further transcend into the back, holding the back in an elegant, light manner. The backseat has an interesting lightly scalloped top and long horizontal button tufting. The light bouclé upholstery gives an elegant look with its textured look and a cosy sitting experience thanks to its softness. In 1937, Carl Malmsten designed a sofa for the Swedish diplomatic mission in Berlin. He named the sofa Berlin. Perhaps the idea of this easy chair came from the same mission. Up until the post-war era, his designs had been made at the school he started in 1930 and at a number of joinery workshops suited to artisanal production. He established contact with a group of high-quality small industries, the so-called Key Workshops. This chair, however, took form in one of his own Swedish workshops in the second half of the 1940s.

“Break all edges thoroughly”, was a frequent instruction on Carl Malmsten’s drawings. Nature was his great source of inspiration, and there you rarely find sharp edges or corners.
“Neither light, nor eyes or people like bumping into sharp corners”, he explained. Therefore, all edges had to be smoothed so that they were kinder to the eye and to the touch. Carl Malmsten (1888–1972) is not only one of the most famous furniture designer in Sweden. He was also one of the great cultural celebrities of the last century, with a strong influence on domestic and public environments and the social debate of the time.
