Milo Baughman Pair of Swivel Chairs in Orange Fabric
Milo Baughman, set of two swivel chairs, red fabric and wood, United States, 1960s.
These lounge chairs which embrace the shape of the body, are very comfortable and easy to use, are a set which can be placed in the middle of a living space or also to the side of the corners. All in all a set of comfy club chairs that have a Hollywood Regency touch to them despite being modest and understated in their overall appearance. The combination of the high, drop-like pointy back and the straight front gives these chairs both a simplistic modern touch combined with funky elements. The chairs both have a memory swivel, meaning that the chairs automatically return into a centered position.
