Described as some of the most comfortable yet stylish dining chairs ever made, these "Z" teak chairs by Kai Kristiansen (model 42) are some of the most desirable designs for admirers of mid-century Danish furniture. Well-known for their unique Z-shaped armrests and comfortable tilting backrests, the quality of construction and old-growth teak is of the utmost standard, and perfectly compliments the timeless design.
OVERVIEW: Circa 1960s, these solid teak beauties with playful sculptural lines that are just as comfortable as they are stylish. Notice the beautiful splayed legs, unique Z-shaped teak armrests and floating/curved backrests that actually tilt for supreme lumbar support...so you can lean back a bit and have another glass of wine after dinner concludes.
CHAIR FRAMES: The solid teak frames have just been reconditioned, with all joinery tight and secure ready for another lifetime of usage. These chairs are just as comfortable as they are beautiful...always an important aspect for those longer meals or game nights around the dining table.

SHIPPING: Shipping is NOT FREE NOR $0.01 so please contact me with your zip code for an exact quote prior to ordering. Etsy's shipping system isn't setup for larger/furniture shipments so please contact me prior to your purchase as shipping costs vary on your specific location. I sell and ship much mid-century modern furniture nationwide from my home showroom in Seattle so I'll coordinate all shipping logistics on my end if you'd like...I use shipping companies that specialize in furniture transportation and individually wrap/unwrap each piece for the utmost protection. Shipments usually go out 2-4 weeks of ordering but shipping times aren't always exact so some flexibility is required. Free local pickup in the Seattle area too, or you can arrange you're own shipping if you'd like.
