Pair of Lotus Chairs by Robert Parry for Gelderland, Denmark 1950s, Restored

About

Such incredible lines and silhouette in this Danish modern design by Robert Parry for De Ster Gelderland. These early production "Lotus" lounge chairs are from the 1950s, Denmark, and have been reupholstered with new high-quality designer fabric and the original walnut frames hand oiled. Rob Parry was a student of and assistant to Gerrit Rietveld which helps to explain why the design on these are so remarkable. The fabric on the back of these easy armchairs weaves through the angular sculptural Kagan-esque walnut frames and covers the springs that are used for added comfort, and velcro's secretly underneath. Tufted cushions with matching piping are extremely comfortable and look simply amazing. This design was in later years changed to steel legs instead of the original wood ones, such as these examples from earlier years. These club chairs would work great in a Mid-Century Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary, Hollywood Regency or Postmodern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Being highly durable, this set of armchairs would also be an Apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Condition: Excellent condition. Fabric and cushions are brand new. The walnut frames have been hand oiled and is completely original and in very good to excellent condition. One arm on one chair has slightly deeper wood grain than the other arms. Measurements: H 34" x W 25.5" x D 31" Seat height 17.75", seat width 20.75", seat depth 17.5", arm height 19".
