Beautiful and rare to find here in Canada, this slat chair by iconic designer Arthur Umanoff is a mid century classic! This 1950s chair features one of the looks Umanoff became so well known for: combining the basic materials of wrought iron and bent wood, and creating a minimalist piece that is absolutely timeless. We've done a "gentle restoration" on this chair, meaning the iron frame was repainted in flat black (original rubber feet remain intact), and the wood given a light sand, toned, and lacquered to maintain age-related patina while also looking refreshed. This is a rare chance to own a piece of mid century design history and a wonderful example of American design innovation. Would look great mixed with other wood and iron chairs around a dining table, a fabulous desk chair, or simply enjoyed as a compact side chair. $395
