Vintage Art Deco curved shell club chair
Divinely curved 1940s shell shaped armchair made using traditional, very robust, upholstery methods.
This low-backed, shapely, armchair would work brilliantly in many different settings. It would perhaps be best appreciated in the middle of a room so it could be viewed from all angles. But it would work equally well at a dressing table, at the end of a bed, on a landing or in the corner of a room. The dimensions of the chair and the other two piece in the suite it belongs to offer a great amount of seating for the space that they take up.
The armchair offers low but excellently roomy and supportive seating. The shape of the seat ensures good lower back support and a firm seat is created by the springs. The coil springs push against the seat so it where it has gentle curves it will always have gentle curves.
The sofa stands on dark oak legs and sits firmly on the floor. The legs are at the front of the chair are large buns whereas at the back they are curved sections of solid oak.
Condition: Excellent with some signs of age and use. Original golden green colour draylon upholstery is in used but excellent condition considering the vintage of this piece. Note that the area along the top of the chair where your arms rest (photographed) is where the upholstery is most worn.
