1940s Leather Club Chair

Born in 1929, the often called 'Club Armchair' was inspired by the Art Deco movement and evolved from England and France. Furniture designers seized the opportunity to provide their clients with luxury and comfort in line with new tastes. The name comes from the rise of gentleman's clubs in England in the 19th Century, where men would go to escape their household and have a drink and perhaps a cigar. The club chair has evolved over the decades, with 20th Century manufacturers preferring an 'overstuffed' leather club chair. This is not a bad thing in furniture terms, it simply means very well padded. This piece is in good condition and has had the seat resprung in the workshop. Studding along seams. There is also a set of two on the web site in the same model and condition if the decorating project requires three
