Funky Chairs

Get into the Groove!  Don’t you agree that these chairs look absolutely delicious?  Our upholsterer has shown off her talents again with this stunning swivel lounge chair and ottoman.


These iconic chairs were designed by Charles Eames for Herman Millar and this model dates from around the 1980’s.  Herman Millar was known for bold and beautiful designs and founded the company in 1923 in Michigan.  These streamlined designs began to be favoured by wealthy clients who had previously favoured heavy, dark and wooden bedroom furniture.  A self- taught furniture designer named Gilbert Rohde came along in the early thirties and used his knowledge of modernist and art deco styles to persuade Millar that modern, smaller homes needed a different approach.  The Millar company survived the Great Depression by moving with the times and the striking iconic designs are recognisable the world over.

The fabric used on this chair was a limited stock line but we have many other furnishing weight materials to choose from in both of our shops and online
