Set of 10 Dining Room Chairs by Edward J. Wormley for Dunbar, USA 1950s


Set of 10 dining room chairs model 453 by Edward J. Wormley for Dunbar in beige fabric, USA 1950s.

This large set of chairs designed by Edward J. Wormley, the longtime director of design for the Dunbar furniture company, is still as marvellous as when it was designed. Drawn in simple lines, these chairs have a timeless quality and signal subtle craftsmanship from every angle. Interestingly the elegantly shaped walnut frame is very similar to some designs by Brazilian design legend Joaquim Tenreiro. Although if there was any, it was most likely the latter being influenced by Wormley.
