Pair Block Island Cane Club Chairs & Ottoman by John Hutton for Donghia, 1990s

About the Item

Pair Block Island Cane Club Chairs & Ottoman by John Hutton for Donghia, 1990s. A limited production, Block Island collection designed by John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995. This seating series is Hutton's graphic, highly textural interpretation of the work of Jean-Michel Frank. Examples from this particular collection are rare. Mr. Hutton was the firm design director from 1978-1998 and was responsible for many of the, now iconic, Donghia designs produced during that period. This set comprises of two club chairs and one ottoman featuring a woven cane patchwork pattern, on mahogany feet, with original Donghia fabric on the loose seat and back cushions. The Block Island series is arguably the most aesthetically successful of all furniture produced by Donghia. Good overall condition, minor fading, caning is complete throughout, some lighter discoloration on cane in spots, surface dirt evident in some areas. Original Donghia upholstery shows only minor fading. Two club chairs: 34" deep x 31" wide x 29.75" high x 23" arm height x 16" seat height (with cushion) 21.5" wide x 22" deep interior seat dimensions 11" seat height (without cushion) Ottoman: 20' deep x 31" wide x 15" high (with cushion) 11" high (without cushion) Provenance: Private Collection, Wainscott, New York
