H-237 Art Deco Cocktail Chairs by J. Halabala

$3,795per set

About

The dramatic curve of the bentwood armrests instantly distinguishes armchairs designed by J. Halabala, one of the most prominent industrial designers from Czechia. Manufactured circa 1930, these lounge armchairs flaunt a modernist anatomy constituted by contrast; sturdy square front feet juxtapose playful split back legs. The soft light-hued bouclé upholstery reminiscent of cotton woven terry cloth fabric adds an air of coziness to their bold avant-garde nature.

About the Designer

Jindrich Halabala

Thanks to design lovers’ enthusiasm for Art Deco and mid-century modern furniture, and the increasingly competitive market for pieces by more famous creators, 20th-century Czech designers are making their way back onto the international stage. Foremost among these talents is Jindrich Halabala.

Halabala was a cabinetmaker’s son whose training was almost wholly focused on woodwork, first at a state-run vocational school for woodworking in Valašské Meziříčí and later at UP Závody in Brno, where he ultimately became chief designer. His curvaceous bentwood H chairs, such as the H269 and H237, and stylized ottomans have become classics, while his 1930s and 1940s sofas, tables and storage cabinets, with their sweeping curves, stylized geometry and dark, richly grained wood, embody the best of Art Deco furniture design, a style that was brought to worldwide attention at an exhibition in Paris in 1925.

Some see Halabala's work as the segue between early 1900s Czech Cubism and the modern style that dominated the mid-century.
