These are beautiful chairs. The style. The fabric. The color!! If you have been looking for a gorgeous show-stopping pair of accent chairs…you have found them. AND they have been authenticated as Model 100 Planner Group designed by Paul McCobb and produced by Custom Craft by one of the foremost authorities… so talk about quality and an iconic reputation!! We suspicion that they had been reupholstered prior to our obtaining them. They are covered in an incredible tweed-like fabric with an overall chartreuse green coloration with undertones of yellow and a rosy red. The resulting blend of colors is just stunning! Their simplistic shaped seats and back are held up by four maple splayed legs. The legs themselves are a work of art being tapered from a square at their top that gradually changes to round at their bottoms and the end of the taper. Each chair is accented with a self-upholstered round bolster pillow. These will be the perfect pair of chairs whether you need them in your living room, sitting room, bedroom, or study. We are so in love with them here at the shop… its going to be hard to let them go!!
