Panton Era Tufted Leather Tulip Base Club Chairs
Mel and I saw these chairs on eBay a couple of months back and we bought them. They were in Salem Oregon. We shot up there over one weekend and snagged them while we were up there picking up a couch, chair and ottoman set.
These had some condition issues when we got them. There were some cracks in the base that I had to fill and paint.
The fabric is in fantastic condition for its age. I assume these were produced sometime in the 70’s.
I searched all over these pieces and could not find any makers mark. These are made of thick, hard plastic not fiberglass.
The cushions attach to the plastic shell with buttons.
I think it looks great next to our space age lamp/shelf and that large Letterman.
On to the next post!
