Pair of 1930s Gio Ponti Armchairs for Casa e Giardino

£ 7500

An absolutely stunning pair of 1930s Italian Gio Ponti armchairs designed for Casa e Giardino. The armchairs have been fully restored and reupholstered in a Sapphire Blue soft velvet fabric with piping along the front of the curvaceous arms and along their backrests. The armchairs are supported by four fully restored stylish black tapered wooden legs. 

This a classic Gio Ponti design, incredibly comfortable, with a soft plumped single cushion which looks stunning from all angles.  The armchairs are very much of their time.  Perfect for a mid century living room or large bedroom.

Note from the upholsterer: "The chairs are sprung with spiral springs, the edge on the back was made from a paper roll, there may have been horse hair in them but I didn't get down below the soft padding layers and was therefore unable to tell. The armchairs had definitely been reupholstered in the past, a couple of times, because there was remains of at least two different fabrics inside which were of a very good quality structure and the upholstery used previously was of a high quality too.  The most amazing chairs I have ever had the pleasure to work on"
