This strikingly handsome Davis Allen design for McGuire of San Fransisco is the model RW-12A "Square Chair" and RW-51P ottoman. It is a cube chair executed in rattan and cane wicker with loose cushions. The rectilinear form is the perfect counter point to the organic materials, the rigid geometry offset by the delightful, fluid details. The ottoman is supported by 4 casters, allowing it to move easily in the room.
Chair: 30"h X 31"w X 31"d Ottoman: 15"h X 31" X 31"
Upholstery needs updating/ replacement.
In addition to this single lounge and ottoman, we have two more square chairs which share an ottoman, the matching sofa, coffee table, as well as round and rectangular side tables– all of which come with Tropical modern aficionado Sir Terrance the toucan's seal of approval.
Iowa native Davis Allen (1916-1999) worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill for over 40 years, and designed furniture for Stow Davis, Steelcase, Bernhardt, Stendig, GF, Hickory Furniture, and McGuire.
