About the Item

This incredible design is a pair of Model 120 LF 'Tulip' lounge armchairs by Erwine and Estelle Laverne for Laverne International. Ingeniously designed in 1957, this wide span armchair is crafted from molded fiberglass, and enameled steel. This elegant Tulip easy chair by Erwin and Estelle Laverne would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as a side chair, bedside chair, fireside chair, dressing or changing room chair, hallway chair, entryway or mudroom chair, nursing or reading chair, conference room chair, office, guest chair, lobby chair, lounge chair or occasional chair ideal in virtually any setting.
