Our example is in excellent condition and you can skip the wait and get it for less. This chair is ideal for the design and Fine art collector to the discriminating designer client. This biomorphic club chair cradles and supports the human body while allowing for conversation or privacy.

  • Leather 'Oxford' Swivel Chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, 1973, Signed
    By Fritz Hansen, Arne Jacobsen
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    Model 3271 Oxford chairs designed by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen in 1963 in excellent condition. This chair was produced in 1973 per the affixed Fritz Hansen label. *NOTE* Only one (1) chair is still available from the set of six that we originally had. Price listed is for one chair. The supple, green-gold leather upholstery is in fabulous condition with no rips, tears or issues. It has an elegant depth that offsets the utilitarian metal frames; the gorgeous combination sets these chairs apart from the rest, making them an inimitable addition to any stylish office, home or studio. This chair would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as side chairs, cafe or breakfast table chairs, bedside chair, fireside chair, dressing or changing room...

  • Pair of Ward Bennet for Lehigh Leopold Tufted Swivel Club Chairs, 1960s, Signed
    By Lehigh Leopold, Ward Bennett
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    This pair of swiveling club chairs by Ward Bennet for Lehigh Leopold is for true collectors - for those who love everything all-original and with gorgeous light patina and light leather distressing (and the leather on these lounge chairs are so beautiful for those who love lightly distressed leather!). But the best part in my opinion is that these also have their original labels still in-tact underneath and with those old school nail heads that you only see on items from the 1970s and earlier. While the design is indisputably Ward Bennet for Lehigh Furniture, having the labels is something you hardly ever find on these chairs and is so important for collectors. Nothing on these chairs are missing and everything is all-original with no condition issues (just that gorgeous leather patina with light distressing). Collectors, eat your hearts out but hurry because you now have to compete with all the art and design investors overseas who are buying up Mid-Century Americana items...
