the wish list: maurice bailey for monteverdi young armchairs

 maurice bailey for monteverdi young armchairs, at darrell dean antiques, via 1stdibs
all we can say about these chairs is yum. witty, idiosyncratic, modern, exuberant, maurice bailey's work for monteverdi young, represents a fanciful side to mid-century modern that maison21 has always had quite the soft spot for.  not as famous or prolific as tommi parzinger or edward wormley, two designers m21 thinks are comparable in feel, mr. bailey's creations represent that sweet spot where art & craft met commerce & function at the middle of the 20th century.
