Edinburgh – EH16 4BB

An outstanding and striking piece of post-war British design by Howard Keith that is exceptionally difficult to source and highly collectable – this very rare ‘Fanfare’ chair was one of the largest wingback chairs produced by HK furniture and shouldn’t be confused with the smaller and relatively common Viking and Comet wingbacks from the same period. 
The ‘Fanfare’ has an incredible profile with its flared seatback, top-heavy wings, angled armrests and splayed, tapered beech legs – stunning from every angle. The combination of a seat that subtly tapers from the front to the back and the large wings and angled armrests make this chair exceptionally comfortable – it literally hugs you! HK furniture produced chairs and sofas of the very highest quality retailed at Heals and Harrods that fused striking design with traditional techniques and craftsmanship. Constructed on a solid beech frame (its extremely heavy) this chair has a fully sprung seat and back. 
The chair was professionally re-upholstered (at great expense) around 8-10 years ago and finished in a chenille type fabric. The fabric is fresh (coming from a smoke and pet free home) and there are no stains or rips/tears to the fabric, so it’s ready to be moved straight into your home.
A very rare, simply stunning and exceptionally comfortable chair.
I have another chair also available – please see the final photo and my other listings if you are interested in a pair.
Collection from Edinburgh (EH16) or I can organise a courier for £60 to most of the mainland UK – please contact me with your postcode to confirm.
Payment required via Paypal within 48 hours of purchase unless prior arrangements have been agreed to pay cash on collection.
Thanks for looking.
