Pair of Ribbon Chairs by Pierre Paulin for Artifort, Netherlands, circa 1966

About

A striking pair of "Ribbon" lounge chairs by Pierre Paulin upholstered in a dark grey, almost black velvet. Manufactured by Artifort and distributed by Turner Ltd in the late 1960s. Incredible swooping lines and contoured shape signify this unique and recognized design which has given it world renown recognition and acclaim. A completely upholstered metal frame with horizontal springs, covered with foam and stretch fabric over lacquered pressed-wood pedestal. This armchair design is featured in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. These club chairs would work great in a Mid-Century Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Being highly durable, this set of arm chairs would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge, creative design studio or high-rise executive office.
