Rare Early McGuire Organic Modern Bamboo Armchair

$1,500.00

Rare and important organic modern armchair that was made after the early prototypes designed by John and Elinor McGuire. These first armchairs were made from bamboo with a more pronounced node and reinforced with wicker strapping. These were only available for a short period, then the smoother rattan with the iconic leather strapping became the norm. Beautiful example of the early original California organic modern design from the mid-century. McGuire brass makers plaque on bottom. From an estate in San Francisco, CA.
