Pair of Midcentury Italian Armchairs, Italy, 1950s

$7,900per set

About

This pair of striking armchairs showcases how and why Italy also excelled in the coveted Mid-Century Modern style. In these armchairs style meets functionality and quality. Like many of the Italian armchairs of the 1950s, this pair radiates elegance and quality. The high wing-back and the upholstered armrests create a welcoming, cosy silhouette. The removable cushions and slightly tilted, wide backrests assure great sitting comfort. These chairs have a masterful sense of balance, which is especially visible from the sides: the four legs are counterbalancing the arm, and seat rests, which are raised towards the front. Furthermore, the tapered front legs differ from the back legs that are more robust. The chairs have been recently reupholstered in premium velvet. The cobalt blue velvet upholstery complements the dark wooden legs beautifully, while also adding to the warm, elegant look. Each chair is festooned with five tufted buttons. Another subtle, yet interesting detail is small line of rivets securing the upholstery to the legs. Condition: In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Legs have some marks and scratches. Recently reupholstered in a premium velvet fabric. Dimensions: 26.85 in W x 28.34 in D x 29.33 in H; Seat height 16.92 in 68.2 cm W x 72 cm D x 74.5 cm H; Seat height 43 cm Shipping: This pair of midcentury Italian armchairs will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to make sure you will receive the work in gallery condition. Complimentary shipping within the Netherlands.
