PAIR OF JENS RISOM WALNUT U4230 ARM CHAIRS WITH OTTOMAN
Retaining original labels under cushion, circa 1960s
Item # 709GEA20L
This gorgeous pair of model U4230 arm chairs and matched ottoman were designed by Jens Risom for Jens Risom Design and retain their original upholstery. This was designed to be easily removed for cleaning and changing with seasons; however, the chairs remain in entirely original condition and the upholstery must be changed and foam replaced. The finish is absolutely gorgeous, this old oxidized walnut finish nearly black in some areas from use. The repeated rubbing and enjoyment of the chairs has resulted in a burnished glow in areas of relief set against the darker oxidization for some nice complexity of surface. The cushions sit on a plywood base with the labels still affixed as they were when they left the retailer. They make a very nice interior strike point with the matched ottoman.
Measurements: 24 1/8” W x 28 1/8” D x 29 1/8” H, 13 1/2” H to seat [arm chairs]; 23 1/8” W x 22” D x 13 1/2” H [foot stool]
Chairs and ottoman need to be reupholstered and foam replaced as foam has dried out. Finish is original with a gorgeous patina and surface oxidization; age appropriate wear, scuffs and scratches. Sturdy and strong in all joints.
