Pair of armchairs by Gosta Göperts, model ARE, designed by Göte Göperts for his own firm Botema AB in 1963. White sheepskin seat and back mounted on a pine structure.
Mr Göperts is also the man behind another firm called Göperts Möbler who was the predecessor of Botema AB but made more traditional furniture. A fun fact is that Göte Göperts was originally named Göte Persson but changed his last name to Göperts which is a mix between the two names. He just took the first few letters of each name Gö-te Per-sson and came up with the name Göperts. The chair is in a very good vintage condition with light ware consistent with age and use including a few marks and scratches on the legs.
