Rare SCP Conran Special-Edition Mathew Hilton “Balzac” Armchair & Footstool in Black Leather




More Information

On offer on this occasion is a spectacularly-rare, special-edition Conran “Balzac” Armchair and Footstool from the world renown designer, Matthew Hilton.

Different in design to the more-common but iconic “Balzac” now widely available, this stamped and numbered special-edition benefits from more-angular design, a deeper seat, higher backrest (offering a degree of neck-support) and scooped armrests, but shares all of its beauty, quality and exceptional seating-experience these pieces are renown for.

As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this listing, Hilton pieces are the epitome of contemporary European furniture design, are of superb quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of the finest standard.

In a world of temporary pleasures, Conran creates beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever, and there can be no better illustration than this rarity.

This suite is in handsome, beautifully-maintained condition, reflecting the light, regular employment it has seen in the past, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its current order reflects the TLC and remarkably considerate use afforded it in the past but, as you should realistically expect from a piece of this colour and hide of this nature, there are a number of light, superficial blemishes to the leather to be found across the seat, armrests and frame of this divine pair.

Please view the images provided closely to confirm its gorgeous condition and appearance. Jaw-droppingly impressive, but as accommodating as is possible for an armchair and ottoman to be.

The condition of this suite would comfortably meet the requirements of all but the most-particular and, for someone of a slightly-more relaxed disposition looking for an effortlessly-elegant seat to grace their space, it will please and delight in equal measure.

The dimensions of the armchair is H-80cm, W-90cm and D-98cm with the Ottoman measuring H-40cm, W-60cm and D-40cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously upholstered composite-filled back and feather-filled seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms.

Costing in excess of £4000 when new, it represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt it will serve and delight its new owner for many years to come.

Delivery of this piece to most UK mainland addresses will cost £120, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
