Pair of Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan Patio Sleigh Chairs
By Brown Jordan
A pair of low lounge chairs, known as the “Sleigh Chair” by Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan. A continuous length of tubular bronze serves as the frame of a scooped seat, bends beneath the chair to form two runners, and terminates in two delicately curved finials that rejoin the frame just below the chair seat. A curved support bar stretches below the seat, which is wrapped horizontally with cotton sailcord, lightly glazed to render it suitable for outdoor use.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. The rope has been replaced according to the original design. The bronze has an age-appropriate patina.
Dimensions: 22” width x 30” depth x 29” height; seat height 14”
All Walter Lamb patio furniture at DEN has been restored with the utmost attention to the designer’s original specifications. We rope all seating with a polished cotton sail cord that closely approximates what would have been offered by Brown Jordan when the line was originally retailed. While the cord will retain its shape and strength in most US climate zones, please expect to see some changes in color and texture over time due to weathering and natural accumulation of particulate matter. To maintain showroom condition, we advise covering your furniture when not in use, and especially during extreme conditions. Seating can be re-roped in a synthetic cord more resistant to discoloration; we strongly recommend this option for humid climates.
