Machine Age Art Deco Modernist Lounge Chair in the manner of Paul Frankl

$3,950

About

Machine Age Art Deco modernist lounge chair attributed to Paul Frankl Streamline This one is difficult to document definitively, but clearly vintage, early 1930s in manner of Frankl. Possibly Modernage or Hastings, but you rarely see lounge chairs in any of those lines. Very similar to the Frankl Skyscraper designs, featuring wrapped aluminum over raised wood trim with contrasting burl and ebonized frames. Also familiar elements of Deskey or Teague designs for Hastings, with the slight leg curves and aluminum. Even very early Modernage designs, after all three of those designers. Great restored burl wood sides and front kick-plate. New mohair with leather trim and silver nail upholstery, as original. Ebonized frame. Comfortably canted seat-back. Relatively compact size. Original aluminum trim has significant wear from use. Otherwise excellent.
