1950s Italian Curved Armchair with Brass Conical Legs
1950s original Italian Tub armchair with wonderful curved lines and splayed, tapered, polished brass legs in the style of Gio Ponti. Very comfortable and newly reupholstered in white boucle. The armchair is designed for comfort with heavily padded arms and back. Two upholstered piped lines from the rear of the seat over the back help to emphasise the armchairs curved lines. A wonderful chair. I have another which is the same shape and has been reupholstered in the same style but it's slightly different in size and the polished brass legs are of a different design. However, they could be used as a slightly different pair especially if they're not positioned close together. This version has a slightly higher seat compared to the other by approximately 2cm. I have included some images of the two of them together. In very good vintage condition with some small age-related dents to the brass and some discolouration.

Retro Living evolved from a passion for sourcing eclectic, interesting and unusual items of furniture, art, lighting and objets d'art, with my own home in mind.
I initially started the business online through the Retro Living website which has now grown to a retail shop located on Church Street in Marylebone and a display space in Alfie's Antique Market which is a few doors away from the shop.
