0.00

A set of four generously proportioned Loop armchairs, designed by the celebrated interior designer Frances Elkins (1883-1953), after an 18th century form,  in cream lacquered wood, the backs with wonderfully graphic oval latticework design , with down swept arms, with loop supports, over an upholstered drop in seat, raised on four legs, the front two cabriole with reticulated open work, joined by shaped serpentine stretchers. American, 20th century. These stylish and classic chairs are very solid, well proportioned and comfortable. We think they would be ideal at a dining, breakfast or games table; equally, they would make for great hall, vanity or desk chairs.

Frances Elkins incorporated her eye for 20th century design and architecture into her interior decorating business started in 1918 in California. She was the decorator of choice for the affluent in San Francisco in the 1930s, according to an Architectural Digest article from 2005. It is speculated that this chair design, which is documented in two interior commissions by Elkins, was inspired by her love of architecture and classic design.
