ALL Day, All Steel Fabulous-ness!!!!! This is an incredible vintage armchair wearing its original orange hopsacking fabric on the seat, back, and armrests. It’s resting in an ergonomic lean upon a fabulous chrome base with sled style legs. It’s SUPER comfortable… plus isn’t it GORGEOUS?? We certainly think so. It is modern in style, but it is versatile enough to blend in beautifully with any style décor whether it be mid-century modern, contemporary, Industrial, Bauhaus, Art Deco, Streamline Modern, and more. It will be wonderful in your sitting room next to a lovely floor lamp, the entry way for a stylish and comfy place to sit while removing your shoes, in a corner of your bedroom, a marvelous side chair in the family room, or as extra seating in the living room. Versatility, unbelievable comfort, and vintage All Steel Style…This chair is ALL of that and more!!
Allsteel was founded in 1912 as Allsteelequip Company and began manufacturing custom metal objects, especially electrical equipment. The name was changed in 1929 to All-Steel-Equip Company. In the 1920s, the company began to branch out and started producing kitchen cabinets and refrigerated food lockers. Requests for metal file cabinets were becoming common, so the company bought out a supplier, the Aurora Metal Cabinet Company, in 1936 to enter this market. After World War II, All-Steel-Equip began manufacturing desks, starting in 1947. It introduced bookcases, telephone stands and credenzas soon afterward. Also in 1947, the company’s Los Angeles showroom appeared in “Miracle on 34th Street.” To complete its line of office furniture, All-Steel-Equip bought the Shepard Chair Company in 1936. In 1966, the company was acquired by CIT Financial and merged with BK Johl, a Canadian office furniture manufacturing company. All-Steel-Equip pioneered the lateral file in 1967 and became a huge commercial success. The company restructured after the merger with B.K. Johl, and in 1973 renamed its furniture divisions All-Steel Inc. and All-Steel Canada Ltd., both of which reduced to Allsteel in 1986. They are still in business today.
