An exceptional pair, both for their form and quality. The pair embodies the whimsical fervor of the period, from 1960s. Featuring a solid teak frame produced from laminated beech topped with a thick veneer of teak, with dramatic swooping bi color armrests, formed with perfection as they flow seamlessly to meet the tapered, round legs.
