1950s French Wooden Folding Chair

$795Asking Price


A wooden armchair with a folding seat from France, circa 1950. Upraised armrests encourage a studious, attentive position. The lively curve of the legs, out-splayed, nipped at the waist, provides a playful counterbalance. A scuffed patina brindles the surface, revealing glimpses of amber wood beneath the soft shine of the black paint. The hinged, folding seat speaks to adaptability and pragmatism, while the curve of the backrest and soft indent of the seat offer comfort. A stylish piece, whose marks of wear only increase its impression of youthfulness.
