Set of Six Dining Chairs by Silvio Coppola
Silvio Coppola for Bernini, set of 6 dining chairs, beech and black leather, Italy, 1960s
The chairs feature a sturdy darkened beech wood frame and black leather seats. The backrest is also made of leather. The seat is tufted and filled richly for a extravagant appearance. The beech frame consists of legs that shows a variety in shape; thick on the top, tapered in the middle and going back and forward in this matter. The leather cushion is framed by the tapered shaped wood as well.
Most of the leather seats are in good condition. At most of the seats the leather has been replaced at some time. One of the chairs still contains the original leather and shows signs of age and use, including a tear in the seat. Therefore, re-upholstery of this specific chair is necessary.
