Pair of William Armbruster Lounge Chairs

$24,000per set


Sinuous and sculptural pair of armless lounge chairs in polished stainless steel with new upholstery. Designed by William Armbruster and produced by Edgewood Furniture, circa 1954. Armbruster’s work was widely recognized in its day, including MoMA Good Design selections. This chair design was featured in Furniture Forum, Current Design from the ICA in Boston, Hennessey’s Modern Furnishing for the Home (1952), and George Nelson’s Chairs book, among others. It was also deployed by Elaine Lemaire in 1954 as a counterpoint to Harry Bertoie’s 70-foot panel screen in Gordon Bunschaft and SOM’s Manufacturers Trust building at 510 Fifth Ave in New York City—one of the most important, acclaimed, and chicest interiors in the U.S. in the midcentury—see Ezra Stoller’s famous photo below. Extremely rare to the market—the only examples I have seen in my career.
