Edward Wormley Pair of Armchairs in Green Velvet Upholstery

About the Item

Edward Wormley for Dunbar, pair of armchairs, beech, velvet, United States, 1960s These armchairs are designed by Edward Wormley for the furniture company Dunbar in the sixties. The construction is characterized by a strict angular and open look. The diagonal placed legs combined with a slightly inclined backrest imbues the design with a strong and sculptural expression. The seat and backrest, which are upholstered in soft forest green velvet, are seamlessly integrated with the pale blond wood frame to create a natural and unified whole. These chairs, with their utter simplicity and precise scaling, embody the hallmarks of the designer’s aesthetic vocabulary. Edward Wormley (1907–1995), was born in rural Illinois, United States. As a young man, he was passionate about design and enrolled in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1926, but left due to financial issues and began working for an interior design company. He later joined the Dunbar Furniture Company in Indiana, where he served as director of design for almost 40 years. Following World War Two, he became an independent design consultant. Wormley passed away in 1995, but his legacy of creating elegant and high-quality furniture lives on. He was a master in combining classical 20th century design with modern innovations. Kindly note that these items are in good, used condition.
