About

The sculptural frame of this rocker is fabricated from tubular bronze which has signs of attractive green colored patina which is light and even throughout, forming the backrest, arms and curvaceous runners. The back and the seat are strung with its original cotton rope, lightly glazed to make it appropriate for outdoor use and still in excellent condition. This elegant piece would be a great addition indoors or out as part of a Classic or contemporary living room, den, family room, office, bedroom, veranda, covered patio, terrace or porch. It would also be an Apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel garden, cocktail bar patio, members club roof terrace or workspace studio.
