Pair of Waikiki Rocking Lounge Chairs by Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan
By Brown Jordan
A pair of bronze rocking lounge chairs designed by Walter Lamb and produced by Brown Jordan. The design, referred to as the “Waikiki” chair, has a boat-like shape in tubular bronze with a sinuously curved seat on a pair of bent runners. Three C-shaped supports intersect the frame beneath the seat. A canvas sling is laced tightly to the frame with sailcord - lightly glazed to render it suitable for outdoor use - to form a taut sling seat.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. The canvas and rope have both been replaced according to the original design. The bronze has an age-appropriate patina.
Dimensions: 70” length x 21” width. At rest, the piece measures 20.5” high, with a seat height of 9”.
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.
