Description During the 1930s, Budapest, Hungary supported a thriving furniture manufacturing industry. Many makers were modernist and they enthusiastically created their own interpretations of the world's first truly global furniture style - Art Deco. The distinguishing feature of Hungarian Deco is its simplicity and this chair is a good example. There is no extraneous decoration of any kind, just smooth curvaceous lines. Solid walnut was used and it has been lightly refinished. The original staffing has been totally replaced. The new fabric is a synthetic polyester, in keeping with 1930s modernist principles. Origin: Budapest, circa 1935.
Styles / Movements Art Deco, Contemporary, Modern
