Giancarlo Piretti “Alky” Chairs in New Velvet, Artifort, 1970s

About the Item

A pair of Giancarlo Piretti “Alky” chairs newly upholstered in Designers Guild linen-colored cotton velvet. Designers Guild 'Varese' velvet, is a cotton velvet that is lustrous and elegant. The Alky chairs themselves were manufactured by Artifort in the 1970s. The organic shape offers a minimal appearance but also comfort which makes these chairs so in-demand at the moment. In good condition, foam restored where required, and entirely new fabric. The metal floor glides naturally do show some signs of their age. As these are cotton velvet do expect slight gathering on the seams in places and odd pile differences. In addition, the chairs are wrapped in an interliner felt before the new upholstery which aids the final feel and finish. We offer fast, competitively-priced global shipping. Please contact us to discuss.
