Description

This PAIR SOLD in the first 2 hours they were shared on Instagram page ($420 for 2 chairs).

Price is for the WHITE PAIR of Flexalum armchairs ONLY- for BOTH chairs. PAIRS of Flexalum armchairs are hard to get. These chairs NEVER corrode- read the description below. Location, Morayfield, BRISBANE Northside but delivery Australia-wide can be arranged. ABOUT $90 to get these to Sydney.

This listing is for the 2 arm chairs only (they’re suitable as outdoor dining chairs).

Provenance and Background Information

(This description was written in 2016. Some information below may be time-sensitive.)

This set of 2 Flexalum VINTAGE armchairs (made in Australia the late 1950’s) are thick cast aluminium so they’re strong and sturdy- I can’t see how they ever could have any structural problem. None of these chairs have any corrosion AT ALL which is extraordinary for something that has been out in full-weather. They’ve already lasted about 60 years and I can’t see any reason why they won’t last forever. PAIRS of Flexalum armchairs are hard to get.

Because they’re thick aluminium, they’re easy to move around, won’t blow over in strong wind, won’t collect the rain and will NEVER CORRODE. The quality you’re getting is irrefutable- just look at them after about 60 years of outdoor use!

In my opinion, the comfort of these chairs is good. For better comfort you need some seat pads. I keep seat pads in an outdoor storage box for my Flexalum chairs at home and just bring them out when we’ll be sitting down for an extended period of time.

The best thing about investing in Flexalum furniture is the inspiration it evokes- Flexalum furniture ticks every box and provides a benchmark for modern companies to work towards. This suite was built to last (and already has!) and will tell more stories long after you and I are gone. There’s no better way to invest in your home and reduce landfill.

I sell vintage Flexalum chairs (c. early 1960’s, regular dining chair size / with no arms) from $130 to $200 EACH depending on the condition of the white finish. We sell the armchairs for $150 to $225 each depending on the condition of the finish. (Contact us to see what we currently have in stock and where the chairs are located.) I normally price a set of 6 chairs in the standard design with the white finish similar to this (with NO cushions) for around $940 – $1200 the set.

The white finish of this pair isn’t perfect but is still extremely good overall. (See the close-up photos and use the ZOOM-IN tool.) The finish of Flexalum chairs is purely COSMETIC! Flexalum chairs NEVER rust, NEVER corrode even if the white finish is completely flaking off- these are certainly not though. I personally like them just as much when the finish isn’t perfect- they’re vintage chairs and have a story to tell. Signs of use and age add character in my eyes but it’s a matter of taste I suppose. (THE FINISH DOES NOT AFFECT THE DURABILITY OF THESE CHAIRS AT ALL (EVEN IN FULL WEATHER)- THESE ARE ALUMINIUM!

1911 and 2111

The white finish presents very well for chairs of this age. This pair of chairs have a few scuffs and small spots where the white finish has chipped off here and there. These could be touched up with exterior paint if desired. THIS IS NOT ESSENTIAL though because the white finish is cosmetic (these chairs are aluminium so the metal will never corrode- even in areas where the white has chipped off.) Use the Zoom-In tool to closely inspect the condition of the white finish. The white finish has been painted over at some stage using quality exterior paint. Whoever did this has done a good job- I used these chairs at home for years (until I sold my property) and I never noticed they'd been later painted until I took these photos and inspected them closely for this listing. The white finish shows other minor signs of age but you have to be very picky to notice anything. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Measurements.
