European Lounge Chairs with Sculpted Wooden Legs, Europe ca 1950s

$ 9,453
  • Description
    These unique, elegant lounge chairs take stylistic inspiration from both French period and Italian modern seating designs. The design incorporates beauty, functionality, and simplicity in a way that is characteristic of the mid 20th century.

    Maintaining the simplicity of design while offering plenty of interesting details is the strong suit of this pair. The bodies rest on intricate wooden bases with gently curved legs that recall historical styles such as the cabriole. Yet, the legs are much shorter and the seats lower which is an essentially mid-century characteristic. The clean lines are broken with curved, smooth angles added for accent. The fully upholstered bodies accentuate these curves, especially on the arms that fold outwards. The gentle curves are also present on the top of the backrests and on the wooden bases, creating a cohesive, balanced look. There is a delicate feminity about these chairs that is exuded through the friendly and round shapes completed by the light fabric.

    These lounge chairs have a cosy modern style, modelled on the European furniture of the 19th century, including the round edges, the generous seat cushions, and sculpted legs. Clean lines, gentle curves and a shared modernist sensibility make them perfect for contemporary spaces.
