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 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. We also make a wood version of this chair, see product number MC-7710 for this item.

Modern Classics Furniture offers two levels of premium Top-Grain Italian Leathers for this product (Smooth and Distressed). These leathers feature:
  • Top-grain Italian leather from Grade A hides
  • Semi aniline-dyed (standard) and 100% aniline-dyed (premium)
  • Made at Italian tanneries and sent to our factory
  • Have a UV and Moisture Guard built into the non-toxic vegetable dyes

We are happy to mail you a physical piece of leather so you can hold it in your hands.

Our Smooth Premium leathers are top-grain, aniline-dyed, have a soft feel to them and most of the hides natural grain patterns are retained. Our Distressed Leathers (denoted with the prefix L5) are also top-grain, aniline-dyed but have a distressed look to them. L5 leathers will show rubbings and have a more waxy feel. All our leathers are considered equally durable and are ideal for home or commercial use. To read more about leather, read our A Guide to Understanding Upholstery Leather: A Primer.
