With many years in the business, at first glance we were unsure if these chairs were Parker Knoll as we had never seen any before but our customers father was a designer for Parker Knoll, Robin Howland, and we were assured they were. Possibly a prototype and definitely rare. Robin Howland was one of the designers of the Parker Knoll Drop Arm Sofa, a classic design. (see image at bottom of thread)
The customer chose the fabric Slub Cherry from The Harrow Range to compliment other furnishings and the style and colour of the wood. Above shows with arm caps, styled to still show the wood and below without. New seat cushion interiors were replaced.
The chairs in original covering showing wear areas on the arms.
