Brazilian Modern Armchair Set in Velvet, Hardwood & Metal by Carlo Hauner, 1950s

$ 25,000
  • Description
    Available now, this Mid-Century Modern armchair set in velvet, Hardwood & Steel designed by Carlo Hauner in the fifties is perfect!

    Size: H27.6, W27.6, D35.4 (in) H70, W70, D90 (cm)

    This gorgeous set features a steel structure painted in black and a seat & body backrest in new gray velvet upholstery with three buttons and delicate Brazilian Rosewood (known as Jacaranda) arms.
    The restoration of the set took a few months because when I bought it the armchairs didn't have the Jacaranda arms, and every collector knows that the value of a piece is on the integrity of the piece, meaning original pieces and method. Finding Hauner’s wood arms took me to many antique markets until two months after I found the wood arms in a shop specialized in vintage furniture in Rio de Janeiro’s city center. Now the piece is complete!

    These armchairs are so awesome that we’ve paired them in the gallery with other pieces and are always spectacular. The first furniture set showcases the armchairs with Scapinelli’s famous Acqua coffee table and Jorge Zalszupin Pullman sofa. The second image has the set next to Celina Decoracoes four seat sofa and a delicate Scapinelli coffee table. The third image has one armchair next to Sergio Rodrigues’s Sabara Rosewood trunk and they look impeccably awesome together.

    These Brazilian Modern beauties effortlessly flex into any Mid-Century Modern, modern, Contemporary environment. The set also looks wonderful in a boho chic, or Hollywood Regency style home as well.
    This iconic design has been countlessly photographed in vintage as contemporary publications. Attached images showcasing this timeless beauty. We can share more publications upon request.

    Carlo Hauner (1927-1997) with Martin Eisler (1913-1977) were the primary designers for the iconic Brazilian furniture company Forma. They are most known for well-shaped armchairs made in iron, but the production is far more complex, handcrafted, and extensive. The wood pieces produced by Forma Móveis e Objetos de Arte during 1950 & 1960’s in Brazil are highly designed and well-executed.

    Their narrative spans four countries (Italy, Austria, Brazil, and Argentina) and several decades and their exceptional works are already highly sought-after examples of the vibrant modern design movement in Latin America.
