Catalog Note:
Designed in 1934 during the Great Depression, K.E.M. Weber's iconic Airline armchair was never produced on a large scale despite being both attractive and functional. Ultimately, fewer than 300 armchairs were constructed and most were purchased by Disney Studios for use in their Burbank headquarters.


Age-appropriate wear to wooden frame including nicks, light scratching and discolorations to finish. Upholstery in good condition and free of tears and stains. Structurally sound and presents in very good vintage condition with fine patina.
