Scandinavian Deco Club Chairs in Blue Leather and Velvet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Fantastic pair of lush club chairs with spring seats and turquoise leather frames. The blue velvet cushions and corresponding lining under the loose cushion are a relatively recent addition (past decade or so). Velvet is in excellent, vintage condition, and the leather is nicely aged showing wear commensurate with use.
The front feet retain most of the original white paint, exposing the mahogany underneath where there is loss. The back mahogany cylindrical feet retain none of the original paint (perhaps by design).
Measures: Arm height 25.75".
