Description This pair of Nautilus chairs exemplify the stunning organic Futurist forms and clean lines for which Vladimir Kagan one of the most esteemed furniture designers of the 20th century is celebrated. The chairs' form suggests an abstracted interpretation of nautilus shells with their concave curves. Beyond their maritime associations, they represent timeless and important pieces of Mid-Century Modern design, not to mention wonderfully compelling objects.

While many “Nautilus” Chairs are “Kagan Vintage” pieces produced under license agreements in the late 1990s and 2000s, these are original and early examples of the Nautilus, in mint restored condition. They have been reupholstered in Holly Hunt Birch Bark Mountain Side Fabric with offers a wealth of subtle organic texture, featuring earth tones in heather, slate and dove gray. As is the case with the best design products, they will match perfectly with any style of interior from Mid-Century Modern to contemporary.
