Art Deco Reclining Library Chair
Wonderful oak and birch library chair in green Harris Tweed with foldaway side-table, side book stowage and Bakelite and chrome ashtray.
We believe this to be a creation by Heals, it is that good but cannot say so with absolute certainty – so is not listed as such. The seat is fully sprung with the back welcomingly curved. What’s more, a simple reclining mechanism ensures absolute comfort enabling concentration on your favourite Conrad or Hemmingway adventure.
The piece has not been over-restored but rather retains the honourable scars of 100 years of use which only add to the character. Like most pieces of the era it is compact and would thus fit in any house, modern or period.
This piece has been fully rebuilt, re-polished and re-upholstered using traditional techniques and materials.
