About this item

This fantastic looking pair of mid-century armchairs were made in The Czech Republic sometime in the 1950's
we bought them in Prague last month.
They are in In good condition. there isn't any play in the arms.. they are solid as the day they were made.
They are a fantastic looking pair of chairs whichever angle you look at them from, the outstanding design feature of these chairs is the use of one single
a large piece of bentwood to make up the Long hope that makes up their arm.... this is the only design of chair that I can think of that does this with one single length of bentwood.
They have the original red material which has a white pattern in the stitching.
All of the wood is a mid-brown honey color. There 30 springs in the seat which makes them a comfortable seat.
Jindrich Halabala was a professor of design and architecture in Prague and was a giant in European furniture design in the 1930s and 40s.
He strived to produce attractive looking furniture that was high quality and well made and he pioneered a technique and designed the machinery to bend large pieces of wood using steam and rollers. He was a designer rather than a manufacturer there were three or four companies which made these chairs across the Czech Republic.
This particular model is one of the most popular styles I buy, I can never find enough of them in this good condition to supply the demand.

They are in very good condition.
all of the wood is in good condition and so is the material there are one or two little marks on the material but they have been cleaned and there are no odors. They are 60+ years old so obviously, there are some signs of age
