Description

This rare pair of early mid century modern armchairs are full of energy and post war optimism. Clean lines and rich native rimu combine to form a design will stand out in any contemporary interior.

Hyper extended hind legs create a dynamic arch and vibrant rocket like form. Crisp linear detailing and armrests that tilt skyward complete a chair that is poised for lift-off.
