Art Deco Desk Chair inspired by Paul Dupre Lafon

Here is another version of one of our most popular pieces, the Art Deco Desk Chair, inspired by notable French architect & designer, Paul Dupre Lafon. It’s easy to see why it is a frequently requested chair; it’s so easy to customize. Each different combination of wood, finish & upholstery completely transforms the style and tone this chair has in its’ environment. It is also a beautiful example of Dupre Lafon’s style, with the slightly inclined flat back and visible fixing screws.

In this version, we upholstered it in a beautiful smooth leather. The oak frame was finished with a light ceruse finish, utilizing the beauty of the wood grain as a design detail. Smaller details include the bronze exposed screws.

Andre Sornay Inspired Chair

Andre Sornay was a brilliant French modernist furniture designer whose fabrication techniques and ideas helped shape the furniture industry as we know it today.

After the financial crash of 1929, he changed his style to feature clean, simple lines and bold geometric forms, many times using exposed nails along the edges of furniture. This process created the minimalist, modernist aesthetic that has inspired many, us included, in the years since.

Our Sornay inspired chair holds many of these attributes, comfort and form are key as well. The beautiful fabric used here is enhanced by the oak wood, with a light ceruse finish. It is primarily used as an occasional chair, or an office guest chair.
