About the Item

It doesn't get any better than this rare and exceptionally stunning 1980s Postmodern lacquered black dining chairs by Vladimir Kagan comprised of a set of eight side chairs. Extremely high quality - these chairs have significant heft, not overly heavy but very solid hefty chairs demonstrating the high quality construction you would expect from Vladimir Kagan's handmade workshop. *Note, we have another set of 8 chairs in this same style, 2 of the set are armchairs. The upholstery is slightly different so would be best to reupholster if you wish to combine the sets. These hard to find handmade dining chairs from Vladi's 1980s Postmodern years feature their original upholstery and original black high-gloss piano finish (lacquered with a lot of hand polishing) on the sculptural solid wood frames and with original signed Vladimir Kagan labels. An Art Deco inspired design done in an 80s Post-Modern style - so unique and an excellent choice for interior designers and art collectors alike. This opulent set of dining chairs would look amazing in a Postmodern, Memphis, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary, Traditional, Transitional, Neoclassical, Hollywood Regency, or Mixed Style home or office. This beautiful set of side chairs can be used together or individually throughout the home in locations such as a dining room, living room, den, games room, office space, entryway or bedroom. They would also be perfect in a hospitality or corporate location, such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Have a conference room in a fancy high-rise or creative office? Consider these authentic and fully original 1980s Modern Vladimir Kagan chairs and impress your clients while retaining asset value in this fabulous collectors set.
