Antonio Citterio Leather Sling 'Timeless' Chair for Flexform ItalyAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Heavy and substantial, this classy and sophisticated yet sleek chair was designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform and given the name "Timeless" which was a great name, as many designers and dealers have a hard time pinpointing when this was made as it has the look, feel and quality of chairs made decades earlier.
This often attributed to Paul Tuttle sling chair features a chromed steel frame forming an X-base and a rich brown leather sling seat is stretched over it. The sides of the frame have multiple embellishments or hand holds, which are wrapped in the same high quality leather. While sharing similarities with Paul Tuttle's Zeta and Arco chairs and sharing in style as many of Milo Baughman and Cy Mann's designs, this unique and high quality chair has been featured in recent TV set design, such as the hit show "Ballers" featuring Dwayne Johnson.
This handsome lounge chair would be a great addition as part of a classic or contemporary living room, large dressing closet, den, man (or woman!) cave, family room, office or bedroom. It would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
