Those items that, upon entering a room, capture and hold your gaze. Might even induce a vocal, "Wow!" For some, it's a "take-my-breath-away" moment. These chairs are statement pieces.
A pair of 1960s club chairs. Super-sleek angular profile, with deep seat. The chairs feature solid walnut bases, with gently splayed rear legs. Solid walnut armrests. Original wool orange tweed upholstery. Comfortable.
Excellent condition, and the finish is remarkably well preserved. The upholstery has been steam-cleaned and ready for another 50 years of use.
Dimensions: 28" high, 29" wide, 31" deep.
The chairs are unsigned and may be Danish in origin. However, the angular design bears some resemblence to Jacques Guillon & Associates seating for Dorval (Montreal) airport in the 1960s. Whomever the designer, they are an iconic pair of chairs, n'est pas?
Note: These chairs are currently being used on the set of Finding Franklin, a short film set in the early 1960s and being shot in Chicago. The chairs will be available for viewing, purchase, and delivery on 16 June.
A pair of outstanding chairs with a Hollywood story!
SOLD. Thanks, Manny @ Highland Park!
