Set of Seven Pretzel Rattan Living Room Set by Paul Frankl
This is an all original, 1950s, 6 strand pretzel steam bent rattan living room or patio set designed by Paul Frankl. There is no makers mark, but many companies produced this furniture using his design. Acquired from the original owner and has been kept in the same home for more than 50 years. Original vinyl upholstered cushions on all of the pieces and glass on the coffee table.

All of the cushions have some wear and some of the vinyl has cracking on the corners. One cushion has a hole in the back corner and another cushion is splitting at the seams. Another cushion has a slit on both sides. All of these cushions have the pattern on both sides so you can rotate and flip them to find the best looking side. You could get away with this for display except for the one cushion that has a slit on both sides. Please see detail photo for damage.
One of the chairs has the binding missing from one side of the back and the binding is scuffed on some of the other pieces, especially the coffee table. Please see detail photo. This doesn't seem to compromise the integrity of the piece at all, though, and is mostly cosmetic. All of the pieces are rock solid, structurally.
The rattan is worn and scuffed from years of loving use, but could easily be restored to like-new condition with new lacquer by a rattan specialist, if desired. The side tables have the most wear from condensation, please see detail photo.
