A superb Mid-Century leather rocking chair designed by Ecuadorian designer, Angel Pazmino, and manufactured by Meubles de Estilo in the late 1960s. Hand-crafted leather slings form the seat and backrest and feature embossed Aztec motifs which refer to the particular culture of Ecuador's Inca past. The solid laurel wood frames are held together by simple dowels. This exquisite piece presents both natural beauty and cultural offerings showcasing a blend of tastes, styles, and stories that come together to create a truly unique piece to accent your daily living space.

Further History: Around this time in 1961, President Kennedy signed the Foreign Assistance Act into law and created US-AID by executive order. Through this act, Ecuador received an American aid project aimed at encouraging local artisans. Local designers had the opportunity to meet Danish modernists and exchange knowledge and ideas. This collaboration has resulted in magnificent examples of traditional joinery applied to modern forms, with the use of solid rosewood and high-quality leather.
