These chairs are just about out of date enough to look modern and stylish again. Made by Paolo Buffa at some point during the 1950s, the armchairs just ooze mid-century cool. The pair have been reupholstered and that is the only part showing wear. 

Can't say for certain what the chairs are adorned with, but it looks like a soft fabric to me and the legs are an ebonized wood. Estimated value for the pair is $3,000-5,000 from Heritage Auctions.
