Pictured left to right: Aldo Bartolucci (Edgar's Father), Claudio Bartolucci (Aldo's youngest Brother visiting from Genoa, Italy), and Edgar Bartolucci.
Aldo had two original-edition BARWAs in the living room. These padded fabric covers were installed over the base canvas-and-spring cover. Several zippers allowed the padded covers to be put on and taken off.
A view of designer Edgar Bartolucci's home showing his personal Barwas. This was sent by his daughter Marisa and is a fascinating look at the home she grew up in.
This is the home where my father was raised and the screened-in porch was where one of their Barwas was kept.
Another view from my father's house. This one is of the den where their second other Barwa was kept.

A wonderful photo of young Hampton enjoying a Barwa in 1975.
Did you know rope or a strong cord can work as a spring replacement? Neither did we! I love how this photo perfectly captures the relaxation these chairs offer.
The was one of our 4th of July family gatherings in Athens, TX 1987. That's my sister sitting the same Barwa we restored after ~35 years and now sits in our living room.
The drawings from patent 2659419 that protected the Barwa design. It's a great view of how the sash chain functions with the springs.
The drawings from patent 2482306 protected the two sitting positions of the Barwa.
