Absolutely stunning, Drexel Heritage club chairs in outstanding original condition. Fully upholstered in persimmon velvet. We purchased the entire time capsule estate and nearly everything in the home was by Drexel Heritage. In fact, many pieces were monogrammed with the owners name in brass plates. Purchased in the 1970’s and kept in the same home until today. Every piece was pampered and these arm chairs were no exception.
The persimmon (sunset tangerine) velvet velour fabric exemplifies the period while accentuating the fly-spec finish walnut wood frame. At a glance, these Drexel Heritage club chairs seem innocuous, but on further inspection and meditation they are truly exceptional. Drexel’s talented artists combined many subtle design inspirations. Art Deco, Chinoiserie, Spanish- Mediterranean, Hollywood Regency and Mid-Century Modern meld together to create a truly original look. The chairs are perched on walnut plinth bases that parallel trim. All the style with no compromise on comfort. Without exaggeration, the comfort level is ten out of ten.
