Marco Zanuso Style Senior Armchair, Available in 25 Colors of Velvet, Italian



Marco Zanuso Senior armchair, Contemporary Collection 1950s style. In new Ivory colour velvet upholstery with solid handmade brass legs, Italian. Made exclusively for Roomscape`s Contemporary Collection. This armchair is available to order and takes 10 weeks for production. Marco Zanuso`s `Senior`chair is the 20th century design classic which inspired this contemporary armchair created exclusively for Roomscape. This chair can be made in a choice of 25 colors of quality velvet as the swatches photographed. This is an example of colour #3 Ivory. We are happy to send the fabric swatches by post to see the color and material up close. We have the full range of color samples in our London Showroom for you to see. Designed for the era of lounge living, this armchair is inviting & comfortable with its high back, relaxing curves & lush velvet. The elegant style, size, & quality detail make this chair well suited for an impressive sitting room. The style fits within a range of Interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist, Industrial or Contemporary. Part reclined, part ‘ready for take-off’, this chair reflects the 1950s ideals of lounge living and the Atomic-age. The organic curves ensure the design remains soft while also adding movement & continuity. Some history about the design process of the armchair: In the past we have stocked at Roomscape original vintage Marco Zanuso armchairs. As originals are difficult to come by and often there have been issues with condition, we arranged to have this model newly made. Working with local craftsman in Italy using traditional methods to exact specifications & quality materials, each armchair has a quality solid wooden frame. The frame sits on 4 removable handmade solid polished brass legs that screw to the frame. Each leg is in solid brass and has the top portion made as a plate, with four holes to screw to the sofa giving great stability to the piece. All the components meet fire regulations. Packing is offered free of charge. This chair would be pack with bubble wrap, foam and cardboard, and sealed with a layer of stretch wrap for safe transport. The legs can be unscrewed from the frame if necessary and packed in a box. Additional dimensions: Height of the seat from the floor is 43.5 cm. Height of the arm rest is 53.5 cm. We also offer in our Contemporary Collection a bespoke Marco Zanuso inspired `Lady` armchair, that was originally the complementary piece designed to go alongside Marco Zanuso`s `Senior` chair. The `Lady` chair is slightly shorter in height & more reclined, with similar organic curves to the design & great comfort. MARCO ZANUSO BIOGRAPHY - Marco Zanuso (1916-2001) was one of a group of Italian designers from Milan shaping the international idea of “good design” in the Post war years.
