The Russell Woodard Sculptura chair is a quintessential example of iconic mid-century modern design. This is our Russell Woodard Sculptura patio chair with wrought iron basket weave construction and signature button feet. It’s a single chair from a long-lost patio set, but it’s still in excellent structural shape and looks great on the patio or in the corner of the living room. It also makes an excellent desk chair. As a matter of fact, most Sculptura patio chairs are typically found indoors these days. And why not, they are genuine works of art that add an ultra-modern touch to any room.
Woodard Furniture has been around since 1866 (they originally made caskets!) and are still manufacturing quality furniture today. Let’s give the Lee L. Woodard Sons company of Owosso, Michigan a chance to sell you on Russell Woodard Sculptura furniture…the following is from the original 1950’s sales brochure:
“Three wonderful things about this new Sculptura chair of ours. You can leave it out-of-doors all the time. The woven wire makes it light and easy to move. And its very modestly priced. Extremely comfortable too – and, we think, very good-looking. Comes in black, pineapple yellow, Ciel blue, antique pink, mocha, Pompeian green, and chalk white finishes. Heavy cotton slip-on covers also available for the chairs. ‘Parkerized’, as is all Woodard furniture, for rust protection”.
This Russell Woodard Sculptura patio chair measures 32.5 inches from the floor to the top of seat back. It measures 19 inches at widest point, and has a total leg span depth of approximately 24 inches. Despite the ‘Parkerized’ finish, it does have a few spots of faint surface rust, and the black finish has faded slightly over decades of outdoor use. A good cleaning and a couple of good-quality cans of spray paint will make most Sculptura chairs look brand new again.
There are a variety of Russell Woodard Sculptura pieces, including the fab armrest chair, rockers, club chairs, and an amazing sofa that we have been coveting since the mid-2000’s (apparently, we haven’t gotten out of bed early enough to find one yet). There are even a few large tables and end tables to match the Russell Woodard Sculptura chairs.
