Unusual pair of Mid-Century armchairs designer as yet unknown !
We’re always on the look-out for beautifully made stylish pieces by unknown designers and makers , as compared with often more commonly seen designs of equal quality by well known designers they offer fantastic value . We sourced these stunning chairs on a buying trip to Belgium , at first thinking they were a dark teak or afromosia . They needed a bit of a clean , and once that was done the wood looks to be a type of mahogany or walnut with a lovely glow and sheen to it which was brought out by a gentle polish . Then we had them re-webbed with Pirelli rubber webbing as the original webbing was well worn after some 50 years of use . New foam cushions were then made and covered with zipped covers in Camira Synergy Venture which is a grey with a slight lilac tinge to it . We can send a sample to you if you wish to see the colour .
Our in-house upholsterer can make further zipped cushions for a very reasonable price , and would need 3 metres of fabric .
We brought some fabulous things back from our trip to Holland , Belgium and Denmark , but these chairs have to be our favourites . We’ve looked and searched high and low and haven’t found any others of this design or even similar , so if you know anything about them or even seen any before we would love to know . Somebody has made a real effort to come up with a design that stands out from anything else that was available in the early to mid 1960s when they would have been made , it would be nice to know who they were .
