Perfectly garish and in absolutely stunning original condition Mediterranean striped velour armchairs. A rare time capsule home treasure. The striped fabric captures the period while accentuating the Spanish style wood frame. At a glance, these chairs are a larf, but on further inspection and meditation they are amazing beyond compare. Without exaggeration, the comfort level is ten out of ten.
This style originated in countries north of the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Greece and Italy, and is often referred to today as “Spanish modern.” Mediterranean-style furniture ranges from simply functional to extremely formal. Pieces like these Mediterranean striped velour armchairs are short, with ornately turned legs and feet; hardware is heavy and often burnished. Walls are predominantly textured. A bullnose edge is a common design detail on countertops and fireplace mantels.
