The French Laundry Home Chair is another view at the term Laundry Chair.
Actually French Laundry Home is a textile label that is really taking off since 2007. It works together with craftsmen and you can choose a chair or sofa from your liking and let it cover up country style. All textile is produced in the USA. Via Remodelista.
It even has a parallel presence in the imaginary world of Second Life (is it still alive by the way?). Via The I.
Swedish designer Fredrik Färg presented his collection of ‘muscular’ leather stools that seem to be made to resemble dogs’ bodies without heads. Called Succession, the collection was part of 20 Designers at Biologiska exhibition during Stockholm Furniture Fair in February. The bumps and grooves on the surface of the stools were created by wrapping rope around each object and then applying heat.
Having seen the skull chair by Pool being received by you so well, I was reminded of this other skull themed chair I came across a few years back and kept a photo of saved on my computer. Let me introduce you to the Skullduggery chair by Georgina Brett Chinnery who designs for her own “interior couture” firm Bombarock in the UK.
Initially working in fabrics using skull prints and experimenting with textural applications, Georgina exhibited her ‘Skullduggery’ chair at the 2006 London Design Festival. At London Design Festival 2008 Georgina showed her signature style of upholstery using skulls and tattoo roses. The new collection of decorative leather furniture, showing a more artisan approach to her work will be exhibited in May 2011 at Collect.
I rediscovered the designer who is responsible for the various Pixel Chair and Sofa Upholsteries, the Spanish designer Christian Zuzunaga, also know as Mr Pixel. Here on the Moel Lounge Chair by Inga Sempe for Ligne Roset
