1950s Vladimir Kagan "Contour" lounge chairs and ottoman

45,000.00

We are delighted to offer these exceptional "Contour" lounge chairs and ottoman by Vladimir Kagan, circa 1950s. This series contains some of Kagan's earliest and most sculpturally expressive designs. The dynamic frames swirl around in sensuous lines supporting the ergonomically shaped seats. The distinct delineation of the two elements (seat and frame) shows the influence of Danish master Finn Juhl on Kagan’s approach. They are as comfortable as they are beautiful. One high-back chair, one low-back chair, and one matching ottoman/foot stool are available. Vladimir Kagan for Kagan-Dreyfuss Inc., USA, 1953. The wood frames retain their original finish and have acquired a beautiful, rich patina over the years. The frames are newly waxed and polished, and the seats are newly reupholstered in a soft, light-camel leather. Repair to one leg of ottoman. The model 175-D high-back chair measures 33-3/4" w x 40" d x 36-1/2" h, seat 16" h; the model 175-E low-back chair measures 29" w x 35-1/2 d x 31-1/2" h, seat 16" h; the ottoman is 19-3/4" w x 22-1/2" d x 17-1/2" h.
