RARE!!! Despite 6 hours research devoted entirely to identify these stunning VINTAGE bentwood chairs I still can’t find any definitive maker. (Listing price is for the pair of chairs only- sofa priced separately.) I’ve spent about ten thousand hours researching / trawling online over the past 17 years I’ve been in this business and have never come across this design before. This suite is VINTAGE- I guarantee that in writing on my website. As at 14 March 2019 there are no photos of this design I can find online (and I’ve tried bloody hard!). This is a good thing in my eyes- with a definitive maker I’d say this pair of VINTAGE chairs would fetch in the realms of AU $5000 in iNVISeDGE and over AU $10 000 the pair in America on 1stdibs.

Americans will pay a LOT more for these even with about $1800 in shipping to get them there.

These are HEAVY and solidly made just like Artek chairs. However, the fully upholstered seat and back in the Aalto models are easier to produce- the exposed bentwood seat and back on this model is MUCH more complex to do (there’s no hiding any of the structure). The exposed timber adds to the sinewy flow of the design. It’s distinctly Scandinavian art deco / nouveau in style. TO TOP IT OFF the construction is a LOT more practical. These cushions sit loosely on the frame like that of Danish and Parker Furniture from the 1960's. It’s cheap and easy to re-upholster this suite or change the comfort by changing the inner-cushioning at any time. PLUS you can unzi … full description is provided at –
