moreThis is a beautiful and rare all original Platner high back lounge chair with ottoman. The fabric is original high-end Cado from Knoll. When you stand and look at this beauty as a whole it looks fantastic, but as with any original, vintage piece there are some small imperfections from age. I want to stress however that in my opinion unless you want an as new chair ... this set is really ready to use in your vintage setting.
The fabric is great with no smells or tears or stains. As you can see in some of the closeup photos , the black thread which is the base of the fabric is showing thru in some slightly worn areas on the edge, arm and ottoman edge. A good reweaver could touch these areas up or you could just leave it alone as I would . The foam on the chair and ottoman is original and it is excellent !!!! No crumbling or hardening at all .. which if you know these chairs , is somewhat of a miracle !!! Again , foam is excellent with no issues. The original nickle plated wire frame is in great condition . There is a very tiny bit of surface patina on teh underside of the chair at the curve of the metal which is typical of these chairs and you have to get down on your hands and knees to see it ... it is not offensive at all. Overall the frame is dusty as the dust catches between the frame and the upholstery , again very typical. No bends or broken welds anywhere !!
Overall if you stand back the frame is just beautiful with a nice warm patina , not the overly shiny look of many newer finishes which I find kind of too retro looking . The chair and ottoman both retain their original plastic floor guard rings as well .So ... what you have here is a stunning rare ready to enjoy icon of mid-century modern design . You can see it in person if you fly out to Palm Springs , it is 75 degrees and sunny today !!! Any questions please contact me and thanks for looking less
