Set of Eight William Plunkett Coulson Side Chairs
A set of eight fabric and chromed steel Coulsdon side chairs. This is a classic and high quality William Plunkett 1960s design, which is very rarely available.
Although his furniture was sold by design-conscious retailers such as Heal’s and Liberty, there was only a limited domestic market. For this reason, and also because of the uncompromising modernity of his designs, the main focus of the business was high-specification projects for the contract market, such as the Commercial Union’s London headquarters in 1969. His steel-framed semi-circular Coulsdon Chair (1964) and glass-topped Coulsdon Coffee Table (1965) – which won a Council of Industrial Design Award – were particularly refined in form, materials and construction. These pieces were juxtaposed to stunning effect in a bar on the QE2.
Some age related wear to the chrome plating consistent with age and light use. (If required the frame could be re-plated, at extra cost).
