J.A Motte '770' lounge set comprising pair lounge chairs & sofa, 1958, Restored

About

Rare and beautiful early examples of the 1958 '770' lounge set by famed French designer Joseph Andre Motte for the French company 'Steiner' . The set comprises of a pair of lounge chairs with the rare matching two seat sofa/love seat. We have completely restored the upholstery on this set, please see images 14-20) We stripped each seating element right back to its bare steel frame and rebuilt the upholstery from there including new high quality rubber seat support webbing by Pirelli and completely new high quality latex foam throughout. The set has been refinished in high quality pale grey 'Steppe' fabric by the Dutch company 'De Ploeg'. The brass plated legs have original patina and show signs of wear and use commensurate with their age, and authenticity we decided not to replate the legs in order to maintain some external signs of their age and authentic vintage patina. The buyer could replate the brass legs, should they choose to do so if they want an "as new" appearance. The restoration has been fully documented by us and we can provide photo's of the entire restoration process on request, The Sofa measures: Length 148cm ( 58.27 inch) x depth 82cm ( 32.28 inch) x height 94cm (37 inch) x seating height 43cm ( 16.93 inch.)
