Pair of Leather Sling-Back T Side Chairs

By Katavolos, Littell & Kelley for Laverne International

United States, 1950s
William Katavolos in partnership with Douglas Kelley & Ross Littell designed the iconic sling-back T chair in 1952 as model 3LC in Laverne International's sculptural New Furniture series. Hidden screws attach the leather seat to a frame of chromed tubular steel and black-lacquered flat steel to create a striking three-legged chair. The T Chair can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and other top museums worldwide. This pair of side chairs is rendered in a burgundy-brown leather with a beautiful patina.
