A rare find! This vintage leather and chrome chair was created by French-Canadian designer Maurice Burke, for Brazilian company Pozza Brasil, circa 1960s. Burke was well-known for his design twist on the iconic Eero Saarinen tulip chairs and table, and later for his leather safari chair designs. This model is called the "Alpha" chair, and it is indeed unique amongst other mid century designs. Thick tubular chrome makes the frame for the padded leather sling, and the chair has an unusually wide stance and deep seat. The leather on the seat back is new and "distressed" to coordinate with the original seat (the back was torn in several places and had to be replaced), and with it new foam was installed in both the back and seat/arms. The leather has been cleaned and conditioned with leather honey, making it soft and smooth and bringing back the original colour tone. Aside from looking good, this chair is comfy and low-sitting, making it excellent for a cozy corner, relaxing, and lounging. A wonderful example of innovative mid century design! WAS $1195, NOW $795
