Edward Wormley Model 5761 Janus Wingback Chair and Ottoman

$15,000

About the Item

Edward Wormley created the "Janus" collection for Dunbar Furniture in 1957. The Greek god Janus seems to perfectly exemplify Wormley’s approach, with one face observing the past while the other faces the future, and this lounge chair and ottoman are a perfect example. An updated, modern interpretation of a Classic wingback, the large chair envelopes the sitter and the ottoman is a perfect perch for their feet. Measures: Chair: 39" H x 29" W x 33" D Ottoman: 14" H x 23" W x 17" D.
