Description This set of armchairs named President designed in 1959 by French designer Jacques Adnet are a rare, exciting find. Upholstered in high-quality leatherette, the chairs are emblematic of Adnet’s philosophies in furniture design. They’re exceedingly functional, with comfort being of utmost importance, and display Adnet’s signature clean lines and geometry. The thick armrests attach the back to the chair at an acute angle for a strikingly modern look. The legs match the chair in color and gleam but offer a balancing contrast in shape—they’re quite thin compared to the robust chair design. Moreover, the chairs are sturdy and of significant weight, an indication of their quality construction and materials. A pinnacle of Mid-century modern design, this pair of vintage armchairs would elevate any contemporary space.
