Tulip Group Lounge Chairs in Rosewood by K M Wilkins for G-Plan of England

$8,995per set

About

Matching sofa also available and sold separately (see last pic). This incredible set was purchased new in Glasgow, Scotland in 1970. We acquired from the original owners who kept them in pristine condition. Designed by K.M. Wilkins for G-Plan of England, this line is appropriately named the "Tulip Group". Wilkins also designed the the well known Housemaster Chair, often misattributed to Ib Kofod Larsen. The "Tulip" design is demonstrated by the rosewood panels which are molded into curves that mimic a blossoming flower. Offered almost exclusively in teak, this rosewood set is truly a rare find. The rich, amber-red panels are perfectly complimented by the chrome hardware and velvet fabric. The luxuriously soft velvet is in amazing condition. The color is difficult to describe, but in our opinion, it's a cross between olive-green and taupe-brown. Of course the refraction of light on velvet can magnify or minimize the tones and highlights depending on the angle and environment. Both chairs hover on their original Magnum Orbit chrome casters that function perfectly. These chairs roll effortlessly and are ideal for carpeted spaces. Restoration / Condition: These G-Plan chairs were found in excellent condition. However, upon inspection we realized that the original support straps had hardened and deteriorated. To allow installation of new webbing, the chairs were completely disassembled and the decking fabric was un-stapled and peeled back. Our upholstery team installed rows of industrial 3" wide elastic strapping to ensure proper support for decades to come. The original foam cushioning was in excellent condition and allowed to remain. Each rosewood "Tulip" section and piece of chrome hardware was professionally cleaned and polished before reassembly.
