    Available today in NY, this Brazilian Modern Pair of Armchairs in Caviuna Wood & Boucle by Giuseppe Scapinelli, are stunning!

    The frames of these two chairs are made with Caviuna hardwood and the seat and backrest is upholstered in a white boucle fabric. The seat and backrest are both curved and the armrests are sculpted. The wood has been refinished and the upholstery is new. The chairs are in excellent condition.

    Giuseppe Scapinelli was an Italian-Brazilian furniture designer who worked primarily in the mid-20th century. He was known for his elegant and innovative designs, which often incorporated curved lines, tapered legs, and other elements that were ahead of their time.

    Scapinelli's work was heavily influenced by the Art Deco and Bauhaus movements, as well as his own personal experiences as an immigrant to Brazil. He produced a wide range of furniture pieces, including chairs, tables, cabinets, and more.

    His furniture was characterized by its sleek lines, minimalist aesthetic, and use of high-quality materials like exotic woods and brass. Scapinelli's designs were also notable for their attention to detail and commitment to quality, which made his pieces highly durable and long-lasting.

    Today, his work is highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts around the world. Scapinelli passed away in 1985 at the age of 75
