Mid-Century Paolo Buffa Style Chieftain Armchair


Definitely favoring modern Italian design of the same period, this very highback armchair has a Danish hint of Papa or Chieftain chair appeal, with its points and curves. Fun, sinewy yet strong. The fat seat design is great. Spring upholstered, new chenille fabric, see close-up. Excellent condition, ebonized maple. Very similar to Paolo Buffa designs of the period and often attributed to Edward Wormley. Measurements: 50" high back. 26 1/2" wide x 29" deep. Seat at 18" high.
