Set of Eight 1950s Dining Chairs by Adolfo Genovese

US$8,900per set


Sculptural dining chairs with strong lines and tapers designed and made by hand by Adolfo Genovese for F & G Hand Made Furniture Co. Cambridge, MA. The chairs are sturdy and robust, constructed from two types of wood a light walnut and ash and have a high gloss clear finish. Front legs are finished with elegant tapering brushed brass sabots. Upholstered in Colefax & Fowler 3051 green. The chairs are evocative of the designs of Gio Ponti, Melchiorre Bega and Erno Fabry. The shape of the back legs casts a nod to J. Stuart Clingman. Eight chairs total. Six side chairs and two armchairs. F & G, which was owned by brothers Adolfo and Edward Genovese, operated from the late 1940's through the mid-1970's and created exceptionally well built "old-school" bespoke furniture in many styles, never yielding their high standards for the sake of cost or expediency. These chairs have been in the same home since first made circa 1953. See our other listings by Adolfo Genovese for F & G Hand Made Furniture Co. Cambridge, MA.
