About

This pair of wrought iron chairs were used in the patio off the solarium at the Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton. These chairs were purchased by Little and Big Edie from the last owners of the home- Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn. The Beales (Little and Big Edie) were the cousins of Jacqueline Onassis and subjects of the iconic Maysles Brothers documentary set at the Grey Gardens estate. The chairs feature curvilinear backs with heart shaped medallions in the center, painted in a neutral off white shade. They sit on looped and wrapped tear drop shaped feet, and offer circular seats also in painted wood. With their legendary provenance and timeless design, these chairs would be equally suited to interior and outdoor spaces alike. They are as timeless as they are aesthetically compelling, blending perfectly with any style of decor from classic Mid-Century Modern to contemporary. Please note there is a picture of them in the patio of the Grey Gardens estate below.
