Stunning and Extremely Rare 1970's American Craft Hammock Chair
Red Oak and macramé hammock chair by artist-craftsman William C. Leete. This spectacular piece, which doubles as sculpture, is approximately six feet long and three feet high. The curved pieces are laminated, which was an extremely labor-intensive process, and was intended to provide both flexibility and strength. The last image provided here is a page from Creating Modern Furniture by Dona Z. Meilach, in which an almost identical piece to this one is featured, along with an illustration of part of the process for creating the springy components of the chair. Two pages of this publication (pages 176-177) are dedicated to the construction of this chair.
Many pieces are stored in our warehouse, so please give us a call at (323) 463-4434 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if the pieces you are interested in seeing are on the gallery floor. Thank you!
