Laid back lounge vibes, a design staple in the 70’s, can still feel fresh and modern, like the earthy boho living room in Anne Parker and Alea Joy’s Portland home (featured in The New Bohemians). With gorgeous vintage Percival Lafer furniture pieces, it’s easy to love this comfortable and stylish look. The broken-in, buttery soft leather, the rich tones of rosewood, and the low slung lines of Lafer’s pieces seem to beckon us in for an afternoon of reading, or a night in with a glass of wine.
The Brazilian designer, who planned to practice architecture, fell into furniture design after his father, who owned a furniture company, passed away. With the goal of ensuring the company endured, Lafer and his brother’s took over and it was there Lafer began to try out new designs, which ultimately brought us the now iconic designs that were widely imported to the US in the 70’s and 80’s.
We love all the curves and warm tones of many of Lafer’s pieces for the seamless way they layer in with color, pattern, and texture. Whether with the neutral tones of an earthy bohemian home or a bright and colorful maximal boho room, this furniture feels right at home.
We find inspiration in Lafer’s work, and are always tempted by the vintage pieces we see. To shop the items above, and many more, check out our partner’s site, Chairish. You’ll find all of this month’s favorites right here.
