This striking pair of armchairs was produced by a French cabinetmaker in the early 1960s. The distinct design is an interesting combination of art nouveau and art deco inspired circular and organic lines with the more rustic materials and techniques of French country furniture made in the 1950s and 1960s. The round backrest is upholstered on both sides. The armrests follow a gracious line, ending in a circular shaped front. The lower part of the frame and the legs offer a dynamic combination of rounded and straight lines. The entire frame is made of solid oak wood which has been finished in a black stain.
The chairs have been reconditioned and newly upholstered in a striking Dedar fabric. Flimflam is a a slubbed jacquard inspired by Bargello fabrics of the 17th century Florentine tradition. Four differently coloured yarns are combined to reinvent a classical motif. The backrests on both the front and back have been finished with brass nails.
