Pair of Landes PVC Outdoor Idyllwild Lounge Chairs w/ Green Mesh Upholstery by Jerry Johnson

Fun and bright pair of white PVC Idyllwild outdoor lounge chairs with Kelly green mesh upholstery and sling designed by Jerry Johnson for Landes Manufacturing Co. They are in good vintage condition. There are signs of yellowing and a few scratches to the PVC due to age and outside use. The mesh upholstery has been cleaned but does still show some signs of age including fading. I like them as but you may prefer to recover. They are priced accordingly. Please see photos. We are selling them as a pair. Circa 1960s-1970s.

This pair of outdoor lounge chairs is just too cool!! They are called the Idyllwild Chair and designed by Jerry Johnson for Landes Manufacturing Co. circa 1968. Johnson was also involved in creating the “new” material called polyvinyl chloride, or PVC plastic which he formed into tubes and slats to produce not only the Idyllwild chair but several other bent tubular-frame designs. This pair has a Kelly-green mesh sling as well as back and seat cushions. They are adorned with white contrasting buttons. I’m going to quote an excerpt from the book California Design by Jo Lauria and Suzanne Baizerman   that best describes these chairs:

Johnson’s Idyllwild Chair and Lounge Chair and Ottoman revealed the versatility of the material and its rich design possibilities. The Idyllwild Chair, made of interlocking PVC tubes rolled down at the edges, presented a casual and whimsical form, while the flowing, curved geometries of the tubular-framed Lounge Chair and Ottoman gave a move elegant and elevated presence to outdoor furnishings. Each expressed a boldness that was highly regarded by the exhibition jury.

These super cool outdoor chairs will be absolutely perfect on your patio, deck or porch. We are totally in love and know you are too. Make them yours!
