Mid Century Ivory Barrel Chair with Hand Embroidery

About

This Mid-Century barrel chair is part of the Gendo Collection, the first collaboration between couture-trained fabric artist and designer, Maki Yamamoto and Melissa Dougherty, designer and creator of one-of-a-kind upholstered seating. The collection includes a sofa, chair, bench and vanity-sized stool suitable for residential, commercial or hospitality use. Each piece in the Gendo Collection--meaning “movement” in Japanese--is a collage of handmade and collectible textiles, including couture’s pleats, flowers and bows; painterly color and hand-sewn lines. Textiles are created for individual pieces, then combined to project texture, shape and movement—not just stretched tight to cover a surface. This chair is called "Yura Yura", named for the distinctive, looping fringe design on the outside of the chair: “Yura Yura” is Japanese, suggesting swinging, shaking and waving. The velvet inside back a traditional Japanese mountain motif, created using an artistic collage of organically shaped silk elements that are hand-stitched to a velvet backdrop and surrounded by decorative knots. The loops on the back are raw silk on linen.

Couture seating, made in Brooklyn. Our seating stands apart, it sets an agenda. Simple frames are selected so that an artistic collage of textiles can be the focus of each piece. We work with weavers, fabric artists and designers whenever we can, to create textiles that will adorn an individual seat. Like any work of art, the completed piece will be a special part of your room design for years to come. The Studio Series is our line, designed and created in our Brooklyn studio. Our Vintage Collection leverages existing frames to create entirely new pieces, elevating chairs to works of art. We collaborate with textile artists, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with seating. Each seat is envisioned and sketched individually, allowing artisans, designers and their clients to be in synch. In addition to a variety of commercial fabrics (or COM), textiles are created and applied by experienced masters using traditional techniques and a sculptural hand, We love visitors, so feel free to stop by our studio.
