Item Description

1930s Oak Swivel Office Desk Chair by Simpoles of Manchester

Great looking and made by Simpoles of Manchester, we sold a similar one last year.

Simpoles of Manchester was a specialist office furniture manufacturer and was established in the late 19th Century. They made useful pieces of antique furniture from desks to filing cupboards and were one of the leading office furniture manufacturers in the Art Deco period of the 1930s.

It cuts a dash with its deco influenced oak frame, nice straight angles to the legs, wonderful shape on the sides of the back and it goes without saying it’s a quality piece of kit. One previous owner, we would say it’s been lightly restored during its life. The oak frame is clean and glowing well and the seat and back are fresh with no holes, rips or tears to the green leather just a little scuffing to the front corner. The chair sits on 4 castors which are spinning fine as is the swivel action on the chair. It will also adjust in height if you wish. We have acceptable wear in places – that’s its history! Ready for work after a session and check over in our Workshop.

A super oak desk chair echoing its period of manufacture well and of course comfortable.
