Robert Lewis Bronze Patio Lounge Chair
By Robert Lewis
An early California-made bronze patio lounge chair by Walter Lamb antecedent, Robert Lewis. The bronze tubing in this example is very slender, sculpted into a chair with an angled backrest, comparatively low-set arms, and the C-shaped supports that often distinguish Lewis’ designs. The frame terminates at two decorative finials at either side of the backrest resembling a pinecone. Woven sailcord forms the seat.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition; rope has been replaced with waxed cotton sail cord according to the original design.
Dimensions: 20.75” width x 27.25” depth x 31.75” height; seat height is 15.5” and arm height is 21.5”
All corded 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 when the piece 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.
