John Wisner for Ficks Reed Far Horizons Rattan Modular Sofa With End Table Set

About the Item

A tasteful fusion of modern, Eastern and boho-chic style. Luxurious bamboo seating group by John B. Wisner for Ficks Reed. Wisner’s “Far Horizons” collection was first introduced in 1954 and remains a desirable, timeless classic. Inspired by the tropical lands of the the East, these bamboo lounge chairs with end table are featured in the hard-to-find dark walnut tone. The color is so deep that it almost appears ebonized. Curved and straight lines of rattan intersect to create this trademark pagoda style. The original straps have been replaced with all new supports. Professionally reupholstered with new, burn orange textured tweed fabric. Tastefully tailored with button tufting and boxed stitched cushions. Along with new foam cushions, our restoration team spent countless hours on the revitalizing the bamboo on all four pieces. We maintained the original tone and mitigated nearly every flaw in the finish. Not to be overlooked, the Square coffee / end table offers plenty of function along with the form. The white laminate top not only looks like new, but its practically indestructible. Ideal for hosting parties.

  • Star Trek TNG Paul Boulva for Artopex Ten Forward Modular Sofa Lounge Chair Set
    By Jan Ekselius, Don Chadwick, Florence Knoll, Paul Boulva
    Located in Chattanooga, TN
    We can neither confirm nor deny that these Paul Boulva modular seating group has seen screen time on Start Trek: The Next Generation, but the teal color resemblance to the Ten Forward chairs is uncanny. The iconic show aired during the 1987-1994 (Nineteen-Laties). The elusiveness of this line makes their discovery all the more exciting when considering the exceptional condition. We’re certain you won’t find a more pristine and complete set of this modular anywhere. This set includes three chair modules without arms, 2 chairs that have a single arm and one corner table (6-piece set). Each piece can be used independently as a stand alone chair or table. This set is modular… use the chairs to create any combination of loveseats, chairs, or sofas. Incredibly versatile, position or arrange the pieces as your needs evolve. Anyone of average health and strength can effortlessly move the pieces. Clearly inspired by (and often mistaken for) the Etcetera chair by Jan Ekselius...
