Pair of Mid-century modern style wooden rocking chaise lounge or patio chairs. The curvilinear seat with wooden dowels and with castors. Similar to designs by Harry Bertoia and Jose Zanine Caldas.

Provenance: From the Estate of Horst Rechelbacher, Osceola, Wisconsin.

Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, was a pioneer in the field of safe and eco-friendly cosmetics. The same curiosity that led him to explore ways to improve the beauty industry led him to travel the world, collecting rare and beautiful objects as he went.

Each, height: 30 1/2 in x width: 62 1/2 in x depth: 32 in.


No visible cracks, dents, or losses. No visible sign of restoration under UV light; under UV light, there are several areas where the finishing varnish is not even; however, it is not visible under natural light, only visible under UV light. Light wear throughout as expected from use. Along the underside of each chair, there is oxidation to the metal components that do not affect the function of the piece. One of the chair's wheels is disassembled for moving purposes; two wooden panels near the foot of the chair are not firmly attached; please note the listing image. Both chairs move smoothly.
