Title: Mid-Century Modern Tooled Leather Sling / Safari Lounge Chair & Ottoman Set by Angel Pazmino, Ecuador, c. 1960s

About: Introducing a rare sling chair and ottoman set by the incomparable Angel Pazmino. Recently and painstakingly restored by our team of craftsmen this iconic set has a new lease on life and we love the results. The solid jacaranda wood frames have been hand-sanded and refinished but we left some of the archetypal and intentional patina which adds character to an already character-rich set.

The upholstery has been re-done in thick-cut genuine leather hides in homage to Pazmino's original design and intention. The seats and backrest have been hand-tooled with love and dedication to the exact dimensions and methods of the originals and perfectly offset the rich woodgrains of the jacaranda wood and even show the ranch brand of the cow as Pazmino often did to emphasize his rustic, back to basics approach.

Angel Pazmino is an Ecuadorian furniture maker who has, in recent years, earned world-wide acclaim for his unlikely merging of pre-Columbian American and Mid-Century Modern design elements into his works. Born in 1926, Pazmino began his woodworking career in 1944 as a cabinet maker. Throughout the 1950's and 60's Pazmino travelled throughout the Americas where he exhibited his work and took inspiration from traditional Ameri-Indian artists and techniques.

In the late 1960's he added his second authorial characteristic, incorporating graphic elements from the continent's native cultures reviving, as he put it, “the ancient and aristocratic art of leather embossing,” learning from such artisans as master saddler Ignacito Ortiz. His works have been collected by designers, state leaders and most famously Pope John Paul II who, according to Pazmino himself, took two sling chairs back to the Vatican when they were only meant to be borrowed during his 1985 visit to Ecuador.

Simultaneously rustic and elegant, functional and aesthetically pleasing this restored sling chair and ottoman set is absolutely arresting from every angle. Ideal for collectors and designers alike who appreciate the unparalleled designs and artwork of Angel Pazmino and are searching for a Pazmino sling chair set that is ready for a lifetime more of use. With their mesmerizing variegated woodgrains unique to the jacaranda tree, expert hand-tooled leather work and instantly recognizable stance this artfully crafted and restored set is sure to make a BOLD impression in any space it inhabits. The very epitome of one-of-a-kind, make this safari chair and ottoman set yours before it's truly gone forever.
