Pair of Lounge Chairs Warren McArthur Style No. 1014 AUR, circa 1935

About

A pair of lounge chairs by the Warren McArthur Corporation from the mid-1930s with stainless steel frames. Union Carbide commissioned this pair of lounge chairs with 14 other McArthur pieces in stainless steel for the terrace of a summer home in Glen Cove N.Y.. This pair of lounge chairs are unique in their assembly. The introduction of a stainless steel awning frame for the terrace was the reason for the commission of this unique grouping of furniture because of the substitution of stainless steel for anodized aluminum in the framing : The assembly and installation of the awning along with a complete documentation of the Warren McArthur furnishings were presented in an article in Union Carbide's journal on stainless steel Electromet published in November, 1936. A single installation view from the same photo session was used by the Warren McArthur Corporation as the frontice photo of an advertising pamphlet produced by Ned Jordan for the Warren McArthur Corporation in 1935. The McArthur pamphlet makes no mention of this unique use of stainless steel instead starts off with "SMART NEW WARREN MCARTHUR CREATIONS IN ANODIC ALUMINUM....VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE AND UNTARNISHABLE. Advertising several pieces of McArthur furniture none of which were used for this terrace project. The lounge chairs are in good condition. The frames show wear consistent with age but no structural damage.. There were 15 pieces commissioned for this terrace : A slat back sofa, pair of Arizona Biltmore lounge chairs with a single ottoman, pair of Light Lounges, pair of armchairs, a smoking stand, a library table, a side table and this nest of 3 tables. Another smoking stand from this grouping is in the collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA.
