Hi,

Thank you for the images.

Your vintage chairs date to the late 1970s early 1980s.

They are barrel back with a chevron, or herringbone wide wale wool type upholstery with tufting on the seat and the back.

This design is based on the lounge/club chair design originated by Milo Baughman; however these were likely not by Baughman himself and moreso inspired by his style.

Here is a link for you to a Baughman example:

and another example:

https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/seating/club-chairs/milo-baughman-blue-velvet-chrome-club-chair/id-f_4906133/

A fair asking price for your chairs is $300 - $400 per chair.

You will now need to please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
