Set of Eight Art Deco Dining Chairs Attributed to Eliel Saarinen

About

Rare dining chairs attributed to Eliel Saarinen (father of Eero Saarinen)designed before his immigration to the United States. In a style that we now refer to as "Art Deco," this style was considered the "National Romantic Style" in Finland - essentially a twist on what became known worldwide as Art Deco - with its strong vertical lines and medieval references. Note the curved backs of golden masurbjork (birch root)and the high contrast of golden and dark birch wood - seen again in Saarinen's furniture designed in the United States in the late 1920's. Upholstered seats have been completely restored and reupholstered in ivory hair-on-hide leather. While Saarinen's son Eero went on to become the more famous of the two, it was Eliel who could be considered the grandfather of Nordic Art Deco design - much like Jacques Emile Ruhlmann was considered to be the grandfather of French Art Deco. Please note the matching pieces to this dining suite in our other listings - dining cabinet and sideboard. (Table has been sold).
