Pair of Waldorf Astoria NYC Lobby Chairs after Paul Iribe's Fauteuil Nautile

$16,000per set


We are fortunate to have acquired two pair of these amazing gondola chairs from the glamorous and historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel. There were only a total of 12 of these generously scaled chairs upholstered in an art deco cut velvet and were situated in the main lobby on either side of the famous clock tower from the Colombian Exposition. The chairs were custom made for the hotel and took as their inspiration the "Fauteuil Nautile" created in 1913 by Paul Iribe (1883-1935).
