Vintage Mid Century Leather Swivel Chair and Footstool by Cornwell Norton
An uncommon twosome by makers Cornwell Norton who were part of the Parker Knoll group. This leather swivel lounge chair and matching footstool is presented in good vintage condition. This set may have been a commercial combo when first purchased.
As mentioned, we’ve not seen one like this before, very stylish and extremely comfortable with it. Both pieces are sitting on their original chrome castors and the swivel chair has a tilt action. We love the shape and form of the arms, craftsmanship and the fact that the two have survived together in similar condition.
Workshop report - The deep green leather hide, not vinyl, which we have conditioned is in good shape with all buttons in situ. The chrome castors and wooden bases on both are a little tarnished but fine with no repairs or wobbles. We have lubricated the swivel device on the chair, which again, is working as it should. We have noticed a small line of stitching loose to the top right side of the seat back about 2cm long but this not particularly noticeable and not a concern, still tight. Overall its in great mid-century condition – expect sensible wear marks and the odd nibble on the arm. Smells fine
A marvellous chair and footstool set from a lesser known British maker and in the preferred leather finish.
