This is a very rare and hard-to-find pair of iron and hemp string chairs, from the 1950s, in the style of Allan Gould (and possibly designed by him or his company). Allan Gould (1908-1988), whose 1952 side chair is featured in the permanent collection of MOMA, was an American designer who pioneered the use of cord in chairs and ottomans.
This pair is particularly alluring for its clever butterfly-shaped armchair design that seamlessly blends comfort and practicality with style and originality. The hemp is in perfect shape, without a strand missing, and the iron frame has just the wear to reflect its age and authenticity. We fought hard to get this pair, and we’re proud to be the purveyors of its fine pedigree.
