Pair Ward Bennett Scissor Lounge Chairs

About the Item

An exquisite pair of Ward Bennett scissor lounge chairs, designed for Brickel Associates circa 1970s. Originally conceived in 1964, Ward Bennett (1917-2003) drew inspiration from the hammock-style deck chairs of the grand 19th-century ocean liners, creating a design that exudes both sophistication and comfort. These scissor chairs boast solid ash frames, finished in a warm black stain that enhances the natural beauty of the wood. The chairs have been newly upholstered in a luxurious stone-colored woven chenille fabric, reminiscent of boucle, providing a beautiful textural contrast to the sleek black frames. This fresh upholstery, coupled with new foam throughout, ensures a comfortable and supportive seating experience. Each chair is designed with a curved seat and backrest, offering an inviting, low-slung silhouette that cradles the body. The armless design enhances their sleek profile, making them an elegant addition to any modern living space. Plastic glides on each chair protect your floors while allowing for easy movement. Measuring 34.5” H x 24.5” W x 29” D, with a seat height of 16.5”, these chairs are not only visually appealing but also practical, fitting seamlessly into a variety of interior settings. Ward Bennett's innovative designs have always been celebrated for their blend of form and function, and these scissor lounge chairs are a perfect example of his genius. Whether placed in a contemporary living room, a stylish study, or a chic bedroom, they are sure to elevate the aesthetic of any space. * A fabric swatch is available upon request.

  • Set Six ‘Trieste’ Dining Chairs by Guglielmo Ulrich
    By Saffa, Guglielmo Ulrich
    Located in Chicago, IL
    Celebrate the ingenuity of Modernist Italian design with this exceptionally rare set of six dining chairs from the "Trieste" series, masterfully crafted by Guglielmo Ulrich in 1961. Manufactured by Saffa, Italy, these exquisite chairs stand as testament to Ulrich's design genius, embodying an innovative fusion of form, function, and craftsmanship. Named after the first prize it won at the Fiera di Trieste in 1961, the "Trieste" chair showcases its innovative and lightweight construction, paralleling Gio Ponti's famed Superleggera chair. It demonstrates a revolutionary use of lightweight wood and intricate craftsmanship, with solid mahogany construction and unique open dovetail joins in lamellar wood that effortlessly connects the legs and backrest together without the use of screws. These split joinery details, visible at each joint, add a unique design element, making each chair a statement piece. These chairs were produced in limited quantities, further enhancing their exclusivity and appeal to collectors and design enthusiasts alike. The set of six dining armchairs are in very good vintage condition, having been carefully refinished / restored by the previous owner. Each chair is upholstered with plush velvet - four in a soft moss green, and two in a dark emerald green, providing a stylish touch of color. The wrapped seats can be easily reupholstered, giving you the opportunity to customize the chairs to your taste! As light as they are luxurious, these "Trieste" chairs rival Gio Ponti's Supperleggera in their innovative use of lightweight materials, without compromising on comfort or stability. Guglielmo Ulrich (1904 - 1977), born into a noble Danish family in Milan, was a seminal figure in Italian design. His works were inspired by 18th and 19th century designs yet reflected a profound understanding of material and simplicity in form and function. His penchant for rare and exquisite materials, combined with an unerring eye...
