An extraordinary pair of Walnut and cane newly upholstered lounge chairs designed by the distinguished architect Kipp Stewart for Directional circa 1950’s, part of Directional’s Country Villa collection. This elegant pair of newly upholstered armchairs feature a beautiful square frame in solid walnut with a rich patina and original caned arms and back. The continuous curved sculpted arm to leg design makes it an extremely comfortable, supportive frame, and an interesting focal point for the eye while the gentle subtle outward-splay back legs balance the frame. The gracious sized seats have a thick attached cushion adding comfort and style, while the loose back cushion offers optimal seating choices. Newly Reupholstered in High density foam Dacron Upholstery Batting and 100% polyester tweed fabric. The oatmeal upholstery and stunning walnut grain frames creates a lovely contrast. These amazing chairs are a perfect marriage of mid century design and comfort and will enhance any room in your home or office. This is your chance to take advantage of a rare opportunity to own a pair of simple but elegant mid century form chairs, and will make a wonderful addition to any home or office.
