Art Deco Recliner by W Hudson
A rare , sinuous and stunning Art Deco piece with flowing bentwood arms and a reclining mechanism by W. Hudson serial number 2772.
Despite the delicate lines, this beautiful and nicely proportioned piece form 1930’s is sturdily made of birch. This warm colour is wonderfully complimented by luxurious South American cow hide that blends subtly from from red to black ( please see the last photo). This is of course incredibly hard wearing. The back of the chair has the original chrome brackets supporting a dowel rod that enables the chair to shift to a recumbent posture with the base moving forward at the same time too.
The back is flat with the cow hide finished off with individual bronze studs and a cushion firmly stuffed with down.It is a wonderfully comfortable and flexible piece that would complement any classic or modern setting equally well.
A really gorgeous and interesting chair that would look fantastic if paired with the Art Deco library chair ( separate listing) ; they would look stunning together
