Description The elements of this chair are very typical of the 1950s’ design of the Netherlands. While the individual design elements are traditional, the quirky shape of the armrests is very unique, and never seen before. Only a rocking chair is known in existence with a similar design.

This wooden armchair from the Netherlands has a rustic yet modern design. The so-called “floating” armrests immediately stand out, and are an unparalleled design element. The six spindles forming the backrest are arranged between the wooden frame that curves in the front to form the armrests. The armrests are supported directly by the splayed back legs, that are connected by stretchers. Three more stretchers assure the construction’s stability, while also playing a decorative role. The separate parts flow into each other seamlessly, with an impeccable joinery technique. The beautiful light oak frame is completed by the low-sitting woven rush seat, which has a geometric pattern. The weave is done very neatly, and with the rope material it guarantees firm support.

While the chair is defined by the “floating” armrests, its other characteristics - simplicity and functionality - are still well articulated. The warm colour of the wood and the organic materials make this chair a great addition to the right interior.

In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Small scratches and marks on the wood.
