A British design classic, these now iconic Esavian stacking chairs designed by British designer James Leonard were first produced around 1947 and were originally innovatively constructed in aluminium from decommissioned weapons left over from the Second World War; when wood was scarce and the government encouraged manufacturers to use new materials.
After the success of the original design, over the following years the chairs were then also produced with wooden frames and seats and also with vinyl fabric options, helping to take the chairs out of schools and into the home.
This beautiful pair of kitchen dining chairs are the perfect addition to any vintage home. Whether adding to an existing collection or just as a stand out pair, we're sure these chairs will keep you comfortable from breakfast through until dinner.
Their now iconic design and fun patterned vinyl are a timeless combination that will surely never go out of fashion.
In a used condition with surface markings to the wood throughout, including scuffs, some deeper scratching and some nibbling, along with some markings and fading to the fabric all commensurate with age. That being said the fabric has been thoroughly cleaned with the frames completely re-oiled, conditioning the wood and making sure the chairs look their very best once more.
Each chair measures approximately 42cm wide, 51cm deep and 78cm tall with a seat height of 44cm.
