ABOUT

The incredible design for this chair was patented in 1964 by Jerry Johnson; Malibu, California and Charlton Company, Inc.; Fitchburg, Mass. I am going to quote a print ad from the introduction of this marvelous iconic chair because I can think of no better way to describe it:

 We proudly introduce a chair that is destined to become a classic in Modern American Design. Triumph I is an exciting new creation of famous California designer Jerry Johnson. Here he has developed a unique chair on which the upholstery is entirely suspended for remarkable body cradling, contoured comfort. This unique foam-tufted, suspension upholstery, in addition to its remarkable comfort eliminated the bulk and weight normally associated with such a comfortable lounge chair; and most exciting, the entire fabric can be slipped off easily for cleaning (or replacement should you ever want to change the color or fabric.) All this…combined with the handsome elegance of a richly grained oiled walnut frame! Choose from high-fashion shades in the season’s smartest fabrics or vinyl! See it today! It is as exciting to look at as it is comfortable!

What more can I say? We have priced this pair for the frames only as the original sling is not usable. We can get a price for you to make new slings using your own material if you would like. Just reach out for an estimate.

This interesting, comfortable, and iconic pair of chairs are sure to be a knockout wherever you use them. Make them yours!
