Design Frères Chairs

American

Design Frères is an eclectic furniture line designed by Eric Thévenot, owner of Blend Interiors, an exceptional California-based dealer of vintage and contemporary furniture and decor. 

Known for synthesizing divergent styles and peppering worldly spaces he creates with works stemming from varying origins and periods, Thévenot is a consummate decorator, and the chairs, tables, case pieces and other furnishings that comprise his Design Frères collection are sophisticated additions to any interior.

Originally from France, Thévenot opened Blend Interiors in Los Angeles in 2005. While the company offers a range of furniture and decorative objects from all over the world — most of which are sourced from its founder’s purchasing trips in Paris — Blend Interiors also offers art advising services and interior design consulting. And the exclusive furnishings he is creating and manufacturing for the Design Fréres collection are part of this endeavor to provide clients with a provocative fusion of design. 

"I believe in mixing periods: Saarinen chairs in a French chateau, Louis XVI armoires in a futuristic pad," Thévenot has said. “I like pulling things out of different time periods and re-creating them for today’s lifestyle.”

Building on Blend Interior’s success, Design Frères was established in 2010 and is a growing venture. 

Given the broad-ranging tastes and concepts at the core of Blend Interiors, it is appropriate that the Design Frères line is so diverse and interesting — the collection features Art Deco-style end tables topped with travertine and stylish counter stools with handwoven rush seats and slender frames of powder-coated steel. Elsewhere, Thévenot’s white oak shelving systems feature chic space elements and draw on the legendary mid-century modernist storage solutions designed by the likes of Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé, with each piece pairing nicely with the vintage European treasures that Thévenot is prone to acquire on his next trip to Paris.

Vienna Chair, Contemporary Design Inspired by Straw Traditional Chairs
By Emmanuel Gallina
Located in Milan, Lombardy
Vienna is an extraordinarily comfortable and elegant chair designed by Emmanuel Gallina who loves to quote Brancusi when saying that “simplicity is complexity resolved”. Inspired to the 1950s of Marcel Gascoin, but also to Vienna at the end of the 19th century. A tribute to Alfred Sloan’s American pragmatism joined to European styling and, in this particular case, to the renowned Italian talent constantly aiming to harmonize beauty and functionality. In solid beech and straw, it is a perfect combination between digital machines and handcraft. The structure is in solid beech. The back is in hand-braided Vienna straw fixed in a milling. The padded seat is upholstered and lined in different fabric categories: cotton, felt, linen, eco-leather, wool, velvet or can be coated with C.O.M. fabric. Finishing is in natural beech or beech painted walnut Canaletto. In the collection you can also find a Vienna little armchair with armrest, Vienna soft chair...
