Description

Interesting, comfy, and modern barstools are not easy to come by but here are four! These amazing stools are done in the style of Saarinen’s famed tulip chairs for Knoll, but these are a redesign by Arthur Umanoff for Contemporary Shells. They are famed in their own right! Comprised of white fiberglass armless shells on white painted cast aluminum swiveling bases with a handy and cool looking chrome foot ring. They will look incredible in your mid-century modern home but equally as great in your industrial loft, modern country house, or modern design ethic living space.

Arthur Umanoff (1923-1985), a Pratt and American School of Design graduate, was a fabulous and prolific mid-century modern and modern designer during the mid-late 20th century. He began his career in 1952 at The Elton Company. His designs include a wide range of décor items as well as furniture which focused for a time on fun bars and barstools and a variety of patio pieces in wrought iron and wood and laminates. Some of the companies he designed for include Shaver Howard, Washington Woodcraft, Howard Miller, Contemporary Shells, and Arleigh to name just a few. His designs are widely sought after today.

These barstools are modern classics. You must make them yours.
