These magnificent lounge chairs are shipped as professionally photographed and described in the listing narrative: Meticulously professionally restored and ready for upholstery. Expert custom upholstery service is available.

A stunning pair of lounge chairs from the limited production Merbau Collection designed by John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995. Examples from this particular series are nearly impossible to find for sale. Mr. Hutton was the firm design director from 1978-1998 and was responsible for many of the now iconic Donghia designs produced during that period. While Hutton’s talent was always recognized within design and architectural circles, this influential modern designer’s work is finally becoming more commonly appreciated by the mainstream. Stout mahogany frame construction veneered in Rush style rattan. Mahogany accents finished in black lacquer. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship – built like a battleship. Exquisite textural jewelry intended to anchor a special space. Excellent Restored Condition. The chairs have been professionally cleaned and re-lacquered; aged to absolute perfection. All rattan veneer is intact and complete. The arm height is 24.5 inches. Matching sofa available in a separate listing. Retains the Maker mark. The price listed is for the pair. Expert custom upholstery service is available.
