Modernist Slatted-Wood Side Chair

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


An exceptional and unusual slatted-wood modernist side chair. Very much in the spirit of Prouve and Perriand but with a wonderful, primitive aesthetic. Square-nail and pegged construction, as well as an absolutely stellar patina. A very sculptural and alluring modernist seating possibility.
