About

High-end gold-plated metal high back dining chairs by Alain Delon. Made and designed in France in the 1980s. A set of six dining chairs made of gold plated metal and fabric. The chairs have fantastic geometric shapes and look classic and yet very modern. We received this dining set from the first owner who bought it new at Roche Bobois in the first half of the 1980s. The former owner told us he bought it as a set of Alain Delon dining chairs. We examined other designs by Alain Delon and are convinced by his story. The chairs have the same geometric shapes like the backgammon table by Alian Delon. And the base and back of the chair looks very similar to his other dining chairs. The dining chairs are in good condition. They still have their original fabric which is in good condition. The gold plated metal of the dining chairs have some traces of use. In some places the gold has a bit faded. Mainly at the top. This is an unique, hard to get set of dining chairs from the 1980s by one of the most famous Europeans of the midcentury. Alain Delon is a French actor born in 1935. He is one of the most regonized actors of Europe and played in many classic movies. He was also a business man and designer. He designed furniture for Maison Jansen and Sabot. Some of his most famous items are his white sideboard, game table and dining chair and table for Maison Jansen. All with the looks of Hollywood Regency.

About the Designer

Alain Delon

His smoldering gaze, chiseled features and roles in such films as The Leopard and Le Samourai won actor Alain Delon international fame in the 1960s. His name and face became emblematic of a certain type of cool French sophistication, and in the 1970s, many fans may be surprised to learn, Delon brought his sense of style to bear on the world of furniture design, when he created a series of pieces for the venerable Paris decorating firm Maison Jansen. Delon’s designs run the gamut of forms, from cabinets and consoles to side tables and armchairs, and a few pieces — notably, his backgammon tables — nod to chic and languorous leisure interests. The detailing and materials of many of his designs point to Art Deco inspirations: scalloped and fluted edges, lacquer finishes and brass trim. Other, more angular pieces, like his backgammon tables, suggest a modern take on chinoiserie. Whatever form they take, as you will see on these pages, all of Alain Delon’s designs have an elegance and glamor that would make them the centerpiece of a sleek, simple decor.
