Elbow Chair by William "Billy" Haines


This elbow chair was designed for Wynnewood the Philadelphia Estate of Walter and Leonore Annenberg. After working on Sunnylands the Annenberg Estate in the California desert, Haines was asked to add touches to the family home in Philadelphia, PA. Here It has been reupholstered in plush chocolate sheepskin. The petite elbow chair was used by Billy Haines in nearly most interiors for two decades from 1949-1965. They provided necessary seating for entertaining and parties and Haines liked to place them in front of low coffee tables. Women rested their elbows and leaned on them, sitting sideways creating an alluring glamorous stance. Elbow chairs were also done in leather with unicorn legs.
