Description

I am so excited to present this awesome pair of chaise lounge chairs! They are called the Barwa chair and were designed in 1947 by Edgar Bartolucci and John Waldheim. They are comprised of an extruded aluminum tube frame that has a slipcover of canvas which is laced up on the backside and bottom like a corset. Pure lovely simplicity of form. The frame allows for a two-position relaxation just by rocking it forward or back for feet-over-head reclining. At the time it was touted as the epitome of healthful relaxation. Considered a streamline update from Michael Thonet’s bentwood lounge chairs or Le Corbusier and Marcel Breuer’s metal versions. These would, obviously, look fabulous on your patio or by the pool but I can also see them covered in a fabric that would make them work wonderfully in a living room or by a fireplace. You just need to make them yours.
