The BA 3 is one of the earliest chairs designed by the prominent post-war designer Ernest Race, who designed chairs for the 1951 Festival of Britain. The BA 3 was unveiled at the 1946 V&A 'Britain Can Make It' exhibition that was intended to boost the public's post-war morale. The BA 3 chair was part of a range of innovative furniture made from cast aluminium, one of the few materials freely available at a time when rationing was still in place and more traditional materials were in short supply. Ernest Race was one of Britain’s most successful and inventive furniture designers, and his BA3 chair will form part of the newly opened permanent exhibition space for furniture in the V&A Museum, London.
 We have sourced 4 original vintage BA3 chairs and have had them lovingly restored to their former glory. Completely refurbished and re-upholstered in a beautiful pistachio tweed, these are design classics that are rarely found in Ireland. For more information, or to view this set, please contact or text 0872600789
