This is a good example of 1970's furniture. It is made of solid imbuia which is in very good condition. I have had the seat support straps replaced and if you look carefully.... no staples!!! The straps fit into a groove in the timber frame. My upholsterer was very impressed with this set. The upholstery fabric has a little life left in them but will need to be recovered in something really contemporary! The foam cushions are comfortable and clean.
