Pair of Ernest Race Lounge Chairs and Ottoman in Eames Upholstery

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This rare set of 'Flamingo' lounge chairs was designed in 1959 by the English designer, Ernest Race. The same year the chair was introduced, it was granted the 'design of the year award' by the Council of Industrial Design.
Both chairs and ottoman had been recovered in vintage Eames for Maharam fabric, which shows wear commensurate with age and use. The chair seats are supported by walnut legs with original large plastic glides.
The pair comes with the scarcely seen Race ottoman which is comprised of an upholstered seat over a black enameled steel frame. The finish is original as are the support straps.
The listed dimensions are for a single chair.
The ottoman is:
24" W x 24" D x 14" h (with cushion) 12" H (without cushion).
