Alexander Girard Office Chair

We recently reupholstered this Alexander Girard office chair for one of our clients. Girard's focus was textile design, but this chair was part of a group designed by Girard for Herman Miller and was produced between 1967 - 1968. Since they were only produced for 1 year, these pieces are highly collectible and difficult to find.

The lines are fresh, clean and contemporary, and as classic today as it was when introduced. Girard's furniture designs featured low lines and he liked having the interior and exterior  shell separate from the seat cushions, maximizing varied upholstery and textures.

We kept that aesthetic and in this case, the interior of the chair was reupholstered black cashmere, the exterior in black cowhide hair and trimmed in black leather. It's beautiful.

Custom Vanity Trio

A few months ago we were involved in a large redecorating project in Bel Air, California. Several of the pieces we custom made were for the owners master bathroom and dressing room.

While the pieces are all different, they echo the lines of French upholstered furniture from long ago, and are covered in an imported embroidered silk that has a very light hand.

Of course, the meticulous attention to detail, and the small finishing touches, really make these pieces stand out. They are as beautiful as they are practical.

Custom wood-framed Armchair

We recently finished this beautiful custom armchair, based on a Andre Sornay design, with several modifications.

It's a gorgeous example of the 1940's post-modernist era, with tailored simplicity and clean lines.

The wood is stained a warm espresso and the linen upholstery is as inviting as it is classic.

This is just another example of the spectacular work we do at our on-site  Torrance workshop - from start to finish, this piece was meticulously handcrafted. More examples of our custom work can be seen on our website.

Custom Sofa: The Molly Sofa

We call this piece the Molly Sofa; it is a Dutch-inspired 3-seat sofa with a solid hardwood frame and solid walnut base. As with all our custom furniture, this sofa is designed for comfort and practicality; the back cushions are removable in order to transform the sofa into a daybed.

It's a beautiful, classic piece. For more information on our custom furniture work, please visit the Classic Design website or give us a call at 310.324.1600.
