Vintage Jack Cartwright 20/123 Club Chair in Black Faux Leather After Corbusier LC2

Vintage Jack Cartwright 20/123 Club Chair in Black Faux Leather After Corbusier LC2

This is another fabulous chair that has been in our personal stash for quite a few years! This awesome chair is done in the style of the famed LC2 Grand Comfort Chair by Le Corbusier, but it was designed and produced by the Jack Cartwright Company. Corbusier, along with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, designed his Bauhaus chair in the 1920s but this one came much later around 1960s-1970s. There is one major difference in the two chairs…the middle chrome bar of the Jack Cartwright chair is in the middle between the upper and lower bars and the LC2’s is closer to the lower bar not in the middle. Another difference is the size. The 20/123 is significantly wider (and truth be known…more comfortable!). This chair is done in a black vinyl faux leather and is simply stunning. Although technically Bauhaus in style it is called by and goes with many other design ethics…Art Deco…Mid-Century Modern…Modern…and even Industrial and Modern Country. It is definitely a design classic and still produced today!

Jack Cartwright, a graduate of the Kendall School of design, had the desire to design contemporary seating. In May 1963, along with just one other employee…a production specialist, he started his namesake company Jack Cartwright. They had a clear vision to provide the market with modern style upholstered furniture produced with exceptionally high quality but priced within the reach of the masses. The Jack Cartwright company is still in operation today. Mr. Cartwright also lent his designs skill to Founders Furniture during the mid-20th century designing many beautiful furnishings for them.

This is one of those classic pieces that as beautiful to gaze upon as it is to use. Make it yours!!!
