Art Deco Reclining Armchair Egyptian Revival Style
Let the Hare run wild!
Once upon a time I had a pair of the most exquisite Egyptian-style Prada sandals. So when the puppy thoughtfully munched one of the still brand new soles, I decided to keep the beaded decoration, knowing I’d be able to put them to good use one day. That opportunity has arrived- I love Art Deco and also the Egyptian revival movement from the 1920’s and have sought to combine both in this stunning piece.
This unusual early 20th Century armchair with strong Art Deco influence has a surprise feature – a hidden mechanism enabling to recline to the point of optimum pleasure . Compact but extremely comfortable , the piece is covered in luxurious , purple Italian made velvet with yellow and red pipping.It is further decorated by three velvet buttons and the Prada embellishment on each arm.Feminine, extravagant and opulent yet supremely use-able the chair is set on birch ebonised bun legs with new brass casters. It certainly has the WOW factor!
This piece has been rebuilt, re-polished and re-upholstered using traditional techniques and materials.
