Description

These are incredible chairs. They are part of the Encino Collection from Landes Manufacturing Company circa 1971 to 1979. The original chair, model 603, for this collection was designed by Byron Botker and Jerry Johnson; however, these subsequent chairs, model #683, are listed in the 1979 Landes Manufacturing catalog as credited only to Jerry Johnson. So, it is assumed, at some point after the Encino Collections introduction, and as the line was so successful, Johnson undertook designs expanding the line by himself but maintaining harmony of design between initial offerings and later additions. This pair is in wonderful vintage condition. The chrome is great, the blackened wood shows some wear but happens to be rather appealing, and the fabric is OK but not perfect having some wear and stains. New fabric would be best. We leave that to the end user. The difference between the 603 chair and the 683 chair is the positioning of the side rail. On the 603 it is lower and acts as a side rail making the chair more like a slipper chair and armless but on the 683 is it higher to function as an arm creating a lounge chair with arms. These chairs are a wonderful example of 1970s design and work very well with a mid-century design aesthetic. Use them anywhere your heart desires, just make them yours.

Note: We do have the matching sofa listed as well.
