1950s Knoll Harry Bertoia Bird Lounge Chair Original Vintage High Back & Ottoman For Sale
For sale is this vintage 1950's Harry Bertoia Bird lounge chair with matching ottoman by Knoll. Bertoia's advanced sensibility as a sculptor made the Bird high-back chair both an immediate icon and a timeless classic. HIs specific approach to bending metal rods into comfortable and curvaceous forms created an entire collection of genius seating designs, of which the Bird chair and lounge is considered the crown jewel.
This early example features an original black frame, original burnt yellow upholstery, as well as, original shock mounts/hardware. The subtle cloth design is an engaging detail that can only be observed when viewed rather close, and though the black frame is offset by an organic orange color creating an inherent Halloween theme, the overall aesthetic is utterly hip.
The condition of the padded upholstery is good, and though it has some subtle discoloration from humidity exposure, can most likely be professionally steam cleaned. It is not sagging or slipping in any manner, and remains taught. There is some minimal edge wear and peripheral fraying, and though very insignificant, is worth noting. The covers are missing original Knoll labels, and several screws might be changed. However, it presents very nicely, and would make a beautiful addition to nearly any living space.
The design endures and outlasts genres and eras better than most, and feels perfectly at home amongst chic '50s decor, modern mid-century pieces, and '70s space age vibe. Similar examples have sold for upward of $2,000.00, so take advantage of my sale with Worldwide shipping and handling, and get a great deal on an incredible piece of mid century modern furniture.
