Two Armchairs Marco Zanuso Style, Fully Restored High Pile Canary Cotton Velvet

About

Two armchairs in the style of Marco Zanuso. From a villa in the lake area, completely restaured, padding replaced, belt replaced and upholstered with an Italian woven canary yellow high pile soft writing velvet. Upholsterer/restaurer said it is the most beautiful velvet he has seen. Slender brass tipped legs. A beautiful comfortable iconic Mid-Century Modern set to become the point of conversation of your home. Marco Zanuso, Arflex and the Lady chair. A clarification. When Arflex published the lady chair from Marco Zanuso at the Triennale of 1951 it immediately became the new standard for lounge chairs. It was designed to use the new foam from Pirelli and the design is innovative but very rigid. Legs are a tube bent and the back is not curved. My personal opinion is that even the Aldo Morbelli version from ISA does not carry a well proportioned design. Of the many versions of the period I believe that this is the one that carries the best design. Back is curved gently and the arm rest has an organic flowing wave. Legs are gentle and elegant. See pictures. I much more prefer this elegant version to the first crude lady chair. Last but not least, it's much more comfortable and usable.
