This is the Chair I picked up last weekend at the Belleville Flea Market. I'm wondering what style it might be attributed to. Status Update: Identified!
The only marking is a tag on the bottom from Lammerts Furniture Store here in St. Louis.
I don't think it's by a recognized designer or manufacturer but it is an unusual design. I hesitate to call it just Danish Modern. There seems to have what I perceive to be a definite Asian influence. While pretty comfortable for a side chair the lines are very stark. What sold the chair to me is the connection between the front legs and the arms. I just love that little detail. It is so old fashioned and unnecessary but so aesthetically pleasing and subtle. I think this chair is going in the Master Bedroom as the color of the wood and styling will, I think, compliment the Brasilia bedroom furnishings. I just rearranged the bed orientation and moved out some unnecessary furniture and the room looks twice as big and, well...empty. I'm thinking I need a bench at the end of the bed now.
Status Update: We now have the ID on this chair thanks to Jonathan Goldstein. Turns out they are 1959 American Design Foundation chairs designed by Kipp Stewart and Stewart MacDougal manufactured by Winchendon Furniture.
