Rare Pair of 1960s Dutch 'Groovy' Lounge Chairs Attributed to Gelderland

About

This is a rare pair of fully restored and new reupholstered Dutch 1960s lounge chairs with a very GROOVY shape! We did a thorough research trying to identify the manufacturer and designer of this design The chair's design show the strong influence of French designer Pierre Paulin who worked in the Netherlands for A. Polak late 1950s and during the 1960s for Artifort however we contacted the Paulin family and unfortunately they were not a design by him This leaves only one possible candidate who could have made this chair in the 1960s and this would be Gelderland, During the restoration we discovered the use of high quality materials from Palty that were often used in other designs made by Gelderland Unfortunately they do not have an extensive archive of their history from this 1960s period so they could not confirm this was manufactured by them We have stripped down the chairs from its original old worn upholstery and crumbling foam They have then been fully restored with new Pantera foam and Kvadrat Outback Wool upholstery fabric by designer Giulio Ridolfo in a fresh forest green and brown melange The comfort of these lounge chairs is incredible as they have a big seating area so you can move into any comfortable position you like when you chill out like in the 1960s.
