Early original FK87 chaise longue produced by Alfred Kill (Kill International) and designed by the design duo Preban Fabricius & Jørgen Kastholm. Matted chrome-plated metal base with a coarse linen cover and loose black leather cushions and separate head rest. Cognac coloured leather armrests. Super amazing with beautiful patina. Fantastically comfortable indeed!
