In 1968, Sigurd Ressell became the chief designer for Norwegian furniture company Vatne, and his seminal Falcon Chair (1970) soon followed. Originally, the hammock-like chair was produced with a chrome frame, but was redesigned with a lighter laminated base in 1974 for easier distribution. This is a wonderful addition to any art deco home, or the modern contemporary home.

Our Falcon Chair and ottoman was inspired by the original steel frame version with some important distinctions. First, we use 12mm #304 Stainless Steel flat bar that has been polished to a mirror-like like finish. We use heavy canvas for the hammock effect. Italian Leather and a combination of foam and feathers are in each cushion. Finally, we increased the back seat height to provide comfort for tall people, so they can sit back and relax in style. True to the original, this chair does not recline further or swivel. Features:
  • Mid-Century Modern Style
  • Stainless Steel Base
  • High Resilient Multi-Density Foam
  • Choice of leather colors
Dimensions:
Overall: 33w x 31d x 44h

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of Leather: Standard and Premium Leather. Each of the these groupings feature:

  • Top-grain leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made in Italy and imported to our factory
  • No split hides or bonded leather

Below are the swatches of the leather colors we offer for all furniture which offer leather. Our standard leathers (denoted with the prefix L1) are top-grain, semi-aniline-dyed, corrected with a slight embossing. Our Premium leathers (denoted with the prefix L2) are top-grain, 100% aniline-dyed and have a soft feel to them and much of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. We do not use split hides leather. Leather thickness is generally 1.0 - 1.2 mm depending on application of seating component for stretching and tailoring the upholstery design and condition. Both the Standard and Premium Leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use.
