These stylish swivel chairs, designed in the 1960s by Pierre Paulin, are of quality construction and come in two colour choices.

Born in Paris in 1927, French designer Pierre Paulin studied stone carving and clay modeling at the École Camondo in Paris in the early 1950s. Paulin was renowned for making chairs using foams and metallic frames with stretch materials. He is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Artifort, which began in 1958 and lasted approximately half a century. This relationship resulted in several iconic pieces, including his famed Mushroom Chair (1959), Ribbon Chair (1966), and Tongue Chair (1968). Artifort are a very highly regarded manufacturer, some of their pieces being featured in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

As you’d expect, these chairs show signs of use, notably to their seat backs (see photo) but they remain both comfortable and extremely good-looking!

We have several of these chairs priced at £100 each. Please call or message if you have any questions.
