DESCRIPTION,This fantastic mid century chair was made in East Germany sometime in the 1960s We bought it in Leipzig last month.This very stylish chair is typical of the style and design from this post-war East German era of the mid 1960s. This shape of chair is known as a barrel back due to the shape echoing half a barrel.It is a fantastic looking mid century chair the nice design details the shape of the back the deep seat and the the Barcelona leg, they are splayed outwards, understated but a really effective way of lightening the whole chair. This style of chair are very fashionable at the moment, chairs from this period like these have become something of a style icon. so much so they are being reproduced more than any other style at the moment. You have a noticeable thing about this chair is the original fabric of the design is used around this time. CONDITION.As it is at the moment, it is in good condition.The frame is very strong and sturdy and there is no damage to the main structure of the chair, no woodworm, no wobbly legs. All of the wood is in good condition, the colour of the wood on the arms is a warm colour. It is ingot shape and could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if you so desire.If you did want to have them recovered they would not need a complete re-upholstery just the material which is not as costly. Finally I will add that it is very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
