Brazilian Modern Armchairs in Hardwood & Beige Linen by Liceu De Artes, 1960s

$ 25,000
  • Description
    Available today, this spectacular Mid-Century Modern armchair set in hardwood & beige cotton fabric designed by Liceu de Artes e Oficios, in the sixties, is nothing less than spectacular.

    These impressive armchairs are made in Brazilian Rosewood, known as Jacaranda, and re-upholstered in beige linen. The woodwork is spectacular and can be seen throughout the piece but mostly in the arms, legs, and the backrest. The old Jacaranda has been refinished and displays colorful veins in both armchairs.
    The set is displayed in our showroom next to a Joaquim Tenreiro Concha sofa, a Scapinelli coffee table and a Jorge Jabour Rosewood bench and the set looks chic and fabulous.

    These Brazilian Modern beauties effortlessly flex into any Mid-Century Modern, modern, Contemporary environment. This piece would also look wonderful in a boho chic, or Hollywood Regency style home as well.

    The piece was designed and executed by the Liceu De Artes & Oficios, an institution founded in 1873 by a group of elite coffee barons that pretended to train skilled labor for possible future industrialization of Brazil.

    During the golden years of production, many sofas, armchairs, and credenzas by many Brazilian young designers were manufactured and commercialized by Liceu de Artes e Oficios. Lucio Costa, the Brazilian urban planner, and architect best known for his plan for Brasilia taught and led the design department from 1938 to 1954.
