John Keal for Brown-Saltman Mahogany Dining Chairs

John Keal Dining Chairs

Out of stock


We purchased these John Keal dining chairs from the original estate and can say without hesitation that you won’t find a more pristine set anywhere. The Florida waterfront home was a veritable living catalog for Brown-Saltman. Please look close at our photos when comparing your options. The cerused mahogany looks outstanding and has been masterfully and subtly restored. The key to any restoration is making improvements without making it look as though anything has been done. This set now looks like a museum installation, but yet our price is in-step with similar offerings in lower grade conditions.

These magnificent solid mahogany dining chairs have been redone in a mid-mod appropriate, red weave fabric that contrasts perfectly against the cerused honey colored frames. Re-done by our in-house upholsterer with 30 years of experience. All new foam on both seats and backs. The two armchairs are clearly the belle of the ball. A touch of Far East inspired design synergizes harmoniously with modern elegance. Scandinavian lines with the quality and craftsmanship from one of the California’s most lauded Mid-Century Modern furniture makers.

These John Keal dining chairs in Cuban mahogany are a first for us. We probably won’t see another set again for a long time, if ever. John Keal was a member of the gang of talented designers (Paul Frankl, Paul Lazlo, and Gilbert Rhode included), who worked for LA furniture manufacturer Brown-Saltman in the fifties. The company’s tagline: “Live in the Modern Mode.”

Matching dining table also available and sold separately.

H 30 in. x W 22 in. x D 24 in. x SH 18 in.
