Designer François Carré patented the springy design of these iconic chairs, also known as “Pinwheel Chairs” around 1866. While they were originally created for the parks and public spaces of Paris, their eye-catching form, supportive comfort, and excellent durability would ensure their continued production well into the 20th century. Their popularity peaked around the 1930’s in the United States, which is when a majority of these chairs were produced by the firm of Lalance and Grosjean of New York who had purchased the design patent from Carré. This set of three side chairs is in good structural condition with moderate paint loss and rust, circa 1930’s.
Each chair weighs approximately 15 lbs. Seat height is 16″
