Background Info and Provenance
(Written in 2020.)
A PAIR of wing back designer lounge chairs made in the 1950’s. I have done a lot of research trying to identify these chairs, with no luck and thus I have no idea who the designer is. I do not think they are an Australian production as if they were, I should have come across others over the years- I think it’s more likely they were made overseas. The shape very much reminds me of the G Plan chairs and 1950’s Italian wing-back designs. One thing is for sure- they’re absolutely stunning! From all angles they are striking and stylish.
The vendor bought these chairs from a young lady, the chairs had been passed down from her Grandmother. She was very sad to see them go, but didn’t have the room for them.
These have a high back and great angles- they will suit those searching for vintage chairs for taller people. And despite the height, they’re not imposing in looks at all- they have a refined, stylish aesthetic.
These chairs sell themselves with their sculptural shape alone! But, can you imagine them re-upholstered in a fabric that complimented your interior? My goodness, they would add panache to your home- that’s for sure!
Finally, this pair is a very strong investment- they should never lose any value- try getting that from new furniture! I doubt they could even be made for this price plus they’re in a rare style. There’s a lot of work in them. Re-upholstered, I value them about $5000-$6000 THE PAIR! Investing in vintage furniture is a wise-move financially and also for our environment. Why? When chairs look like this after 70 years of use, you’re guaranteed of the quality and when they could be put on the floor of any furniture design store today and still look the part, you know the design is timeless.
