About

Exquisite pair of Mid-Century Modern slipper lounge chairs from the highly esteemed Directional collection, dating from the 1950s. The refinished chairs have been recovered in stunning soft champagne Kravet upholstery. The beautifully sculpted walnut wood frame has amazing lines and splayed back legs. The chairs are extremely comfortable. These are truly to die for pieces of American modern design.
Throughout the years and many collaborations with different manufacturers that brought to life all his design endeavors, Directional is by far the highest quality manufacturer Paul McCobb collaborated with, producing furniture of the finest quality. In 1949, Directional furniture began as a line of upholstered chairs to complement Martin Feinman's multiplex modular case goods. Directional went on to include hundreds of individual designs manufactured by a multitude of companies. Directional ceased producing Paul McCobb's designs sometime in 1962.
