Sublime Rare Pair of Knoll “East Side” Armchairs by Ettore Sottsass in Red and Black Wool


Hello Friends, and welcome to another unmissable offering from Lord Browns, the preeminent destination for those who share our passion for the world’s finest seating.

On offer on this occasion is quite a find and a genuine 1980’s icon, it being a rare, original pair of “East Side” Armchairs from the world renown furniture house of Knoll International, dressed in their sublime Woven Woollen-Felt fabric in Jet Black and Red, and with Silver-Painted framework.

As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this Ettore Sottsass-designed masterpiece, Knoll International pieces are the epitome of contemporary furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.

In a world of temporary pleasures, Knoll International create beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever, and there can be few more-beautiful examples of this timeless Sottsass icon of design than this.

This suite of armchairs is in superb, immaculately-maintained condition, reflecting the infrequent employment it has seen in the past, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its fine order reflects the TLC and remarkably considerate-use afforded it in the past but, as you should realistically expect from a fabric of this nature and colour, there are a small number of light, minor superficial-blemishes to be found across the the seat, arm and back, and some damage to one of the plastic foot-caps to one rear-leg on one armchair, but certainly nothing that catches the eye overly, or compromises the beauty of this stunning piece one jot.

Please view the images provided closely to confirm its incredible condition and appearance. Handsome and practical in the extreme, and in a supremely warm and accommodating cloth-choice which only serves to increase its beauty, personality and practicality.

The dimensions of each armchair are H-88cm, W-82cm and D-74cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously upholstered composite-filled back and seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms.

Costing close-to £6,000 when new in the 1980’s, it is a great investment for those who adore iconic seating, represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt that it will serve and delight it’s new owner for many years to come.

Delivery of this suite to most UK mainland addresses will cost £135, 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.
