About this item

A late 1940's 'Linden' lounge chair designed by GA Jenkins for Packet Furniture. The chair is often called the 'Tecta' chair and attributed to Eric Lyons, another designer at the firm.

The chair is regarded as a deign classic with an example on display at the V&A in London.

Influenced by Alvar Aalto and pre war bentwood design, Jenkins took this further with the addition of the lattice work to the backrest. The chair is finished in a polished Birch wood and retains its original sprung seat.

The chair is well proportioned and not too big so ideal as a statement chair in any part of the house and just to look at when not in use.

The chair is study, solid, intact and clean. There is ageing to the frame as shown but in good condition. The light brown patterned fabric is frayed to one corner and the horse hair, or similar, inner should be replaced so sold as an upholstery project and with new fabric the chair would look fantastic.

A Quality piece to suit any setting with strong investment value.
