Carlo Scarpa Kentucky Chair


THIS ITEM SHIPS FROM MILAN, ITALY

This set of 4 “Kentucky” chairs were designed by Carlo Scarpa for Bernini in the 70’s. Made with a walnut frame, the chairs retain the original leather seat and backrest with saddle stitching. A beautiful patina is evident. 

Scarpa was inspired by the “Shaker” movement and designed the chair to be slightly inclined at the front so as to allow one to rock backwards and still remain in balance. The high backrest and inclination of the whole chair are made to facilitate the oscillation.
