Pair of Memory Swivel Polished Aluminum Barstools by Designs for Leisure, 1980s

About

A stunning pair (2) of Designs for Leisure Postmodern bar stools, designed and produced in the 1980s, USA. These heavy "memory" swivel barstools feature high polished steel backrests and foot rests, polished aluminum reeded columns bases and six high quality adjustable base levelers per bar height chair. The memory feature helps guide the seat back to its original front facing position. Great feature for luxury design as all stools will always face the precise intended direction when not in use. Nothing spoils a quality interior design like a bar area where each stool is facing a different direction. Designs for Leisure was a New York design house that provided high quality seating for the interior design trade from 1970s to 1990s. There are not many great options for vintage barstools - that is partly why these are so highly sought after by designers and architects. Another reason these are in such demand is their incredibly high quality materials and production. They simply don't make things like they used to. Both Art Deco / machine-age styled barstools are hefty and sturdy. No worrying you or your guests could topple over after a couple drinks. These bar height side chairs could work incredible in a 1980s-1990s Postmodern room, or in a Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary, Art Deco, Industrial, Traditional or Transitional styled home. Consider in a kitchen, bar, restaurant, hotel, creative studio, executive office or retail boutique. Excellent vintage condition with only very minor signs of use, both stools are clean, shiny and bright, and were recently reupholstered so they are stain-free and clean, ready for immediate use. Measurements: H 40" x W 18.5" x D 21.75" Seat height: 31.5".
