Pair of Mid-Century Modern X-Form Benches in Ebonized Walnut and Platinum Velvet


This refined pair of Mid-Century Modern benches were realized in the Unites States, circa 1960. They feature four tapered rectangular legs in ebonized walnut that join at acute angles creating a dramatic X-form. Embellishments consisting of concentric circular designs adorn the top of each leg and their central joint. Additionally, there is a raised geometric ridge circumscribing each legs just above their bases. The legs are connected with an undulating spindle composed of two hour glass forms adjoined with a circular band. The rectangular seats have been newly reupholstered in platinum velvet. With their clean and modernist, yet classically inspired aesthetic, these benches are as versatile as they are striking, blending perfectly with any style of decor from classic Mid-Century Modern to contemporary. Mint restored condition. American, circa 1960 Measures: 24.5" W X 16.5" D X 17" H.
