Two Sculptural "Orkney" Style Armchairs, France, 1940s

$4,950Asking Priceper set


These two sculptural "Orkney style" chairs are designed and produced in France in the 1940s in solid walnut with curved fabric back. The curved back, slightly reminiscent of wingback chairs. The inviting seating has beautiful upholstered seat and provides great comfort. The original upholstery shows traces of age and use. Therefore, re-upholstery is needed (upholstery seats). We advise re-upholstery as the original fabric shows signs of age and use. The craftsman of our workshop are specialist on re-upholstery of design furniture. Walnut wood frame in excellent condition and lovely details with amazing patina.
