Awesome Twosome

BB.gifWe're Bond & Bowery, a website with the most diverse selection of antiques, design, and fine art in cyberspace. We highlight quality pieces without the clutter of competing ads and excessive editorial content. B & B understands the importance of a valuable acquisition and its contribution to home decoration.

Your B & B Host: I'm George Evans, and I've spent the last 20 years importing and exporting antiques and fine design pieces from Europe. I'm a New York City dealer and I have two showrooms in Lambertville, New Jersey.

This week we're bringing you a great Pair of Jens Risom Lounge Chairs, offered by Acme Antiques at 53 Ashburton Street in beautiful Providence, Rhode Island. The beige-gray woven fabric of these newly reupholstered chairs go beautifully with the walnut legs -- and you'll need to check the photos in the item page to fully appreciate the amazing detail as the wood of the back legs climb the upholstered chair back. It's a breathtaking detail! 

These 1950s chairs reflect the amazing Jens Risom design tradition, a Scandinavian sensibility combined with the architectural training he received in Europe and the practical furniture making skills he honed as one of the first designers for Knoll. Wouldn't these chairs look amazing in any living room? Look at how this beautiful David Mitchell decorated room in an East Hampton home integrates a pair of George Smith armchairs with a pair of Holly Hunt wing backs, all adding conversational groupings around the George Smith sofa.

We think these lounge chairs will look beautiful in your home, too!

For a more in-depth discussion about these Jens Risom chairs, see my By George! interview with Design2Share. And visit Bond & Bowery for the item detail page and direct dealer contact information on this amazing vase.
