A stunning set of Ficks Reed Fabulous-ness!!! This 4-piece set is from Ficks Reed’s Far Horizons collection by John Wisner which was introduced in 1954. Let’s start with the wonderful lounge chair and sofa! They are comprised of stout rattan with gorgeous woven raffia seat and backs. They retain their original Ficks Reed tag and their warm and lovely finish which has aged to perfection. They are both designed with sturdy crossbars under the seats, arm stretchers, and the front of the chair and sofa features double rattan bars. The rattan arm bars are held with rattan ties that extend from the front and back legs and wrap around the arm. A Super cool feature! And both ends of the arms are capped with brass tips. Rattan ties cover the top back seat corners and front corners of the seat base, and it looks FABULOUS! They both have loose cushions and the gorgeous coral fabric on the lounge chair blends beautifully with the lovely floral fabric with coral blossoms and green & beige stems and leaves on the sofa cushions. They’re gorgeous AND very comfortable… in part due to the webbed raffia seat and back under the cushions of the lounge chair and back cushions of the sofa. The decking under the seating of the sofa is a not woven, it is fabric. Both the coffee and end table are comprised of a stout rattan base, and they feature a wonderful white tile top including tiles with black painted Asian designs of fans and symbols… The end table is rectangle, and the coffee table is a large square, and they look phenomenal when grouped with the sofa and lounge chair. And the overall design of this awesome Campaign style 4-piece set is classic allowing it to work with many decor aesthetics and styles from traditional to mid-century modern. Ready to redecorate? We are here to help! This is just the change you’re living, or family room has been craving!!

The Ficks Reed Furniture Company was originally established by Louis Ficks as the National Carriage and Reed Company in 1885.  For over 125 years they built their reputation manufacturing high quality furniture using wicker, rattan, woven peel, bamboo, and selected hardwoods. They furnished both residential and commercial environments including prestigious hotels, clubs, restaurants, and resorts. They collaborated with world renowned designers including icons such as Paul Laszlo, John Wisner, Dorothy Draper, Paul T. Frankl, and others. Every piece of Ficks Reed furniture is hand worked to the highest quality which maintained their legacy as a leading manufacturer. Ficks Reed closed its manufacturing facilities in Cincinnati Ohio in 2011.
