Mid-Century Modern Black Lacquer & Platinum Silk Barrel Back Chair by James Mont

$ 6,975
  • Description
    This stunning and quintessentially Mid-Century Modern barrel back lounge/club chair was designed by the illustrious American designer James Mont, circa 1950. Mont was renowned for assimilating elements of classical and Art Deco design into a modern sensibility, using the most luxuriant materials available. This piece is a stunning testament to his practice. The chair offers an elegantly proportioned frame in black semi gloss ebonized walnut with a concave barrel back and stylized klismos style feet. The chair has been newly reupholstered in a luxurious textured platinum silk embroidered with a concentric circular pattern (suggesting ripples from a drop of water in a lake). With its clean modernist lines and beautiful attention to detail by one of America's greatest designers, this piece would be a winning addition to any style of interior from classic Mid Century Modern to contemporary. It has been restored to mint condition.

    American, circa 1950
