K.E.M. Weber Art Deco Lounge Chairs

K.E.M. Weber Art Deco Lounge Chairs

Although Art Deco furniture is not quite antique, according to the definition, walk into most anyantique show in the country and unless the promoter is stuffy and won’t bend the rules, you will see it.  Unlike other antiques, when you do see it, most anyone can recognize it because of its design and form, which includes the simple and symmetrical. The Art Deco period extends from the mid-1920’s to the late 1930’s, after which people lost interest in it and the usage of the words Art Deco weren’t murmured by people again until the mid-1980’s.

There were many designers of the period and one of the most recognizable furniture and name is Heywood Wakefield.  However, there were many other designers and much beautiful furniture including some the great chairs made by K.E.M. Weber.  Born in 1889 in Berlin Germany, Weber studied in Potsdam but eventually settled in Los Angeles.  He is best known for his Airline armchair, which is sleek and laid back, just like the folks on the west coast. His lounge chairs are also exceptional and there are many examples of his work at the Metropolitan Museum.

The lounge chair pictured on the right is a fine example of Weber’s work.  Made of chromium plated steel, leather and wood, this lounge chair was designed by Weber and made by Lloyd Manufacturing in 1934.  Chairs like these, because they rarely come up for sale especially in pristine condition, usually sell for thousands of dollars.  Reproductions and fakes also abound; we recently saw a listing on eBay for a pair of “in the style” of K.E.M. Weber chairs.
