Here we have a lovely vintage cocktail chair. Clearly French in origin- very much in the style of Pierre Guariche – this great looking armchair probably dates to the late 1950s or early 60s. It features the original black vinyl arms, a sprung padded seat and back and sits on very cool splayed black wooden legs with ball feet.

This super comfortable chair is in very good, solid and clean condition. It has been reupholstered to a good standard using a really cool basketweave synthetic fabric on the seat and inner back in a mix of black, white, green, yellow and purple. It looks quite monochromatic in the photos, but it’s really quite vibrant. There are three black vinyl buttons in the back to tie in with the arms and on the outer back is a coordinating panel of ochre yellow boiled wool. There are a few marks on the arms- most noticeably a repaired split on the left arm- shown in photos. As overall they were in good condition, I wanted to keep them original, and I thought the black vinyl worked nicely with the other materials I chose. There are also some scuffs and marks on the legs and the brass caps above the ball feet are quite tarnished. Still a really cool, stylish chair, perfect to add a pop of colour to any retro loving home 🙂

Please note that whilst I put a lot of love, time and care into my pieces, they are by no means machined perfection. They’re all done by hand and subsequently have a handmade finish. If you are looking for something that looks like it’s come from the high street, my pieces probably aren’t for you! 😉

Happy to send out fabric samples if required.

We primarily sell sympathetically restored and occasionally eccentrically reupholstered pieces of quality vintage, retro and Mid Century furniture. Throw in a bit of kitsch, some funky homeware and our frenchie Nibbler and that’s pretty much Mad & Bad Vintage on a plate 🙂
