For some of us this is the closest we can get our hands on one of these babies – some of the most recognizable, iconic designer chairs of the 20th century. The collection boasts realistic tiny reproductions of George Nelson’s Marshmallow sofa, Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair, the ubiquitously 60s-70s retro Eero Aarnio Ball Chair, the handsome Barcelona by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and many other sofas, chaise lounges and armchairs from the likes of Eames, Le Corbusier and Panton.
The first time I saw bespoke furniture upholstered with textile designer Helen Amy Murray’s distinct 3-dimensional fabric and leather creations was on a design and lifestyle show some time last year. I saw only part of the program but I remember thinking “that’s one gorgeous piece of home furniture.”
I caught a rerun of the show the other day (I think it was called Living etc) that I realized how much work it takes to create these beautiful nature-based and geometric designs. It’s all handmade using her patent-applied method. Check out this bespoke wingback leather chair with large dragon motive. Just stunning!
I love the floral (peonies, roses, chrysanthemums) motifs the best.
