These chairs were designed by renowned architect Sir Basil Urwin Spence for The University of Sussex Library. They have been used by many students over the decades and thus have a very unique provenance.
The chairs were never commercially available so if you are looking for a trully unique and enviable suite then these will definitely fit the bill. As mentioned already, these are well used and some have repairs done by maintenance during their years of service. In this case all chairs have been inspected well to ensure that they are structurally sound. All the vinyl is in good condition and all bits of gum have been removed as well.
We have only four pairs of these carver style chairs available. As with all antique, retro, vintage items there is some general wear and tear consistent with age. None of my items claim or pretend to be new but all are inspected and leave having been properly cleaned and sympathetically restored if necessary.
All restoration is carried out professionally and only using sustainable and eco friendly materials and methods where possible. New stock arriving regularly so please follow my store for updates. COVID UPDATE All items are properly disinfected and we operate a safe social distance policy during collections and deliveries to ensure that we can all continue to shop responsibly during this challenging time.
