Item specifics

Seller notes: The fibreglass shell is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips; the velvet is well worn with some very minor tufts and minimal bare patches in places (please see photos for reference). The seat padding is in perfect condition. Overall, the chair probably could do with re-upholstering at some stage in the future, however it is not necessary as the age related wear is hardly noticeable, only on close inspection, for it's age it is in very good condition.

Vintage Original and Rare Late 1960's/Early 1970's French Dark Chocolate Velvet and Fibreglass Shell Armchair produced by AIRBORNE of France (Inspired by Joe Colombo's iconic ELDA Armchair for Comfort, Italy)


Stunning armchair on offer, it is extremely comfortable to sit on and still has the original dark chocolate velvet fabric.  I bought a pair of these chairs, with matching footstools/ottomans just under a year ago from a French Canadian collector, however I do not have the space for both, hence the sale (there is an accompanying footstool available with this chair, however this is not included in this listing/sale although I am happy to send photos and agree an extra price for both items if you are interested, however it is upholstered in a different fabric so please contact me for photos).

The design and construction is very similar to the iconic Elda chair by Joe Colombo, the shell is made from white-coated fibreglass and the padded sections are covered with velvet.  The chair is very rare and has a distinctive shape, structure and form; ideally suited to an open plan space so it can be truly appreciated when viewed from all angles.  The chair was produced by Airborne, France and this example was imported from Canada, I believe when the chairs were originally produced they were distributed by Laroche-Bobois (now known as Roche Bobois).



Condition: The fibreglass shell is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips; the velvet is well worn with some very minor tufts and minimal bare patches in places (please see photos for reference).  The seat padding is in perfect condition.  Overall, the chair probably could do with re-upholstering at some stage in the future, however it is not necessary as the age related wear is hardly noticeable, only on close inspection, for it's age it is in very good condition.

Measurements: Height 87.5cm; Width 94cm; Depth 92cm & Seat height 36cm

Viewings are welcome and encouraged

Cash on collection offers are much more preferable considering the low asking price

I am happy to arrange for a specialist courier and would be happy to look into any other options
