Gio Ponti, Striking Pair of Armchairs in White Sheepskin, Italy 1950s


Gio Ponti (1891 – 1979)

A stunning pair of armchairs by Gio Ponti, upholstered in soft, ivory-colored longhaired lamb’s wool, set on tapered mahogany legs. The stark simplicity of the design, cozily rounded construction, and lush textured sheepskin play off each other to create a set of chairs that is at once minimalist, eye-catching, and warmly inviting.
