Set of 14 Paul Frankl Corset Back Dining Chairs in Ivory White Bouclé, c. 1950s

$ 42,400
  • Description
    We are pleased to offer this one of a kind exquisitely large set of 14 Paul Frankl plunging corset dining chairs for Johnson Furniture, circa 1950 professionally reupholstered in ivory white bouclé. The backs feature Frankl's iconic "V" shape cut out - frequently compared to a corset or plunging neckline. Rich mahogany wood with dark walnut stain, as originally produced. Ivory boucle fabric is soft and inviting, and highly durable (50,000 double rub rating). Surprisingly practical and comfortable, the seat back cut out allows for ventilation and keeps your guests cool and comfortable during memorable dinner parties. Rare and hard to find large set of 14 chairs; it took our shop several years to amass this large set. Get this exquisite Midcentury Paul Frankl dining set before it's gone! Featured in Architectural Digest in 1951 (game table) and again in 1955 (dining room).

    Side chair dimensions: 24" W x 24" D x 32" H
