Today we are happy to offer for sale a beautiful pair of virtually new condition vintage mid century modernist Milo Baughman Chinese Chippendale armchairs (not the more common side chairs)!
Designed by Milo Baughman for DIA (Design Institute of America) each chair features a streamlined Chinese Chippendale fretwork chromed finish, with near-flawless original fun and fresh avocado-upholstered seats that were apparently virtually never sat on. The modern chrome Chippendale chair was Bughman’s clever way of melding a traditional design with a new element for an absolute original and stunning design. Elegant meets Modern!
Pair of armchairs presents beautifully and are in amazingly good vintage condition, with very minor wear and patina commensurate with age. Chrome is bright and shiny with no signs of rust. There is very minimal surface wear that you’d have to search to find. The back-leg of one of the chairs is slightly bent. You’d never have noticed had we not mentioned it. Add classic Mid Century style and elegance to any interior with this wonderful pair of armchairs.
