Description This original pair of club chairs was designed by Donald Deskey for Radio City Music Hall, NYC in 1932. They are unique handmade chairs that have been fully restored and recovered in keeping with the original pallet in a beautiful vintage camel-tan leather. The comfort level is extraordinary and the mohogany skyscraper foot detailing is unique. At age 35, Donald Deskey’s commission to oversee all aspects of the interior of Radio City Music Hall was a triumph. In August of 1932 , Deskey is quoted as saying, ”We hope to impress the customers by sheer elegance, not by overwhelming them with ornament”. These chairs are an excellent example of his vision. The last photo shows these chairs in suitu in the Grand Lounge of Radio City Music Hall. When one sees the magnificence of this historic building, it is unimaginable that it was only 14 months between the ground braking in September, 1931 and the opening on December 27,1932.
