A very rare chair indeed! I don't know of any others in the UK.

Designed in 1956 by Bernard Goss for Pandar furniture of Australia.

Goss was a British designer who had emigrated to Australia in the early 1950s.

The chair is clearly influenced by Robin Day's reclining armchair of a few years earlier.

I'm not sure if the footstool is also by Goss/Pandar, but I'm told it was purchased at the same time.

The chair and footstool were recovered in the mid '80s, I was told the fabric was Herman Miller hopsack. 

Good condition, but with losses to the metal frame. The upholstery is good overall.

A very collectable piece of Australian mid-century furniture.
