Quilpo Low Back Chair
The Quilpo Low Back Chair (pronounced: KIL-po) is an original design, hand crafted in solid wood and select Argentine saddle leather.
The chair’s striking lines and finished suede back show well from any angle. The thick full grain leather seat and back offer pressure-point-free support that conforms to your body at just the right angle.
The Quilpo Low Back is a a superbly comfortable dinning chair whose pared down design makes for a light and easily moved piece that slides nicely on its non-marring nylon furniture glides. It works well alone or in pairs as a unique accent chair.
Each chair is hand signed, and I make them in Zoita wood, a dense and heavy honey-coloured hardwood; stunning in a hand-rubbed oil finish.
The design is a bow to the european mid-century-modern masters while solidly couched in a Latin-American design tradition; dense and figured hardwoods intersected by two generous slings of tanned full-grain leather. Its curvilinear members meet, press and pull against each other at the service of the seated, it’s a pleasure to sit in and only gets better with age.
I flat-pack and crate the Quilpo Chair for shipping via UPS or DHL. Its easy and fun to put these chairs together, I include a how-to video. Delivery from date of purchase for these special order pieces depends on quantity and work flow in my shop, typically 3-4 weeks.
This chair pairs well with other pieces in the Quilpo Line (check out my Etsy Store) but is also at home in a variety of style environments as an accent chair or as a daily-use dinning chair (no worries, clean up’s a snap).
How about a wood and leather sample kit? I can mail them to you, check out my other listings.
I build these chairs – and other pieces- in my studio here in the mountains of Cordoba in central Argentina. I’m new to Etsy but not to design/build. You can check out my portfolio here: argentina.danbursztyn.com
