Pair Janus Wing Chairs with Ottomans by Edward Wormley for Dunbar


    A rare set of "Janus" wing chairs and ottomans designed by Edward Wormley for Dunbar. One of his most iconic designs! In the Janus Collection Wormley modernized the lines of eighteenth-century French chairs, the large, winged bergère and the curved-back cabriolet with his 5761 lounge chair. The set consists of two chairs with wedge shape ottomans, offering unparalleled sitting comfort. Openly independent in design, the generous frames feature a highly angular frame with wings and a deeply channeled tufted backrest add texture. Removable seat cushions, sculptural legs giving the pieces the distinctive look. Expertly restored in a olive green velvet upholstery leans into the luxuriousness of this piece. Welt cord trim contributes to a tailored, sophisticated look that brings soft elegance. True comfort with a very classy look, perfect for the den or library.


    Chair measures 29 W x 33 D x 39.5 H inches.
