Jacques Adnet Lounge Chair Restored with Photos of Restoration Process, 1950


Handsome and rare Jacques Adnet lounge chair recently refinished in beautiful hand-stitched leather by specialist upholsterer 'Couch and Cover' in Antwerp. Lovely brass details to the feet, armrest finishers and buckles. This chair was in a really sad state when we initially found it in France, the original leather was torn and in some areas completely rotted away but luckily it was complete so we had a reference for the specialist restoration. Please see photos 9 and 10. We have many more detail photos of this chair prior to the restoration process. We have left the enameled steel frame untouched with its original finish, there are obvious signs of paint loss and wear but we feel it is important to maintain as much originality as possible. A now wonderful example of a rare Adnet model.
