A set of 2 authentic, Amsterdam School armchairs from the period of 1915-1920. The chairs are made of mahogany wood and they were made by the firm Drilling in Amsterdam. The armchairs have typical Amsterdam School details. Firstly, the parabola-shaped back support stands out immediately. This shape subtly returns at the front of the seat. At the front, the piece's expressionistic look is amplified by the vertical notches in the legs combined with the round feet at the bottom. The armrests are also remarkable as they have a lovely curved shape. The sitting height is 45 cm.
The armchairs are in very good condition, partly due to the stunning, highly exclusive silk upholstery. This Art Deco furniture fabric was designed in 1925 by J.E. Ruhlmann (1878-1933), a world-famous French designer of very exclusive Art Deco furniture. The fabric is 100% silk.
