Unforgettable Pair of Block Island Cane Club Chairs by John Hutton for Donghia

About the Item

These magnificent frames are shipped as professionally photographed and described in the listing narrative: Meticulously professionally restored and ready for upholstery. Expert custom upholstery service is available. A fabulous pair of large-scale organic lounge or club chairs from the limited production Block Island collection designed by John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995. This design is Hutton's graphic, highly textural interpretation of the work of Jean-Michel Frank. Examples from this particular series are nearly impossible to find for sale. 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. While Hutton's talent was always recognized within design and architectural circles, this influential modern designer's work has finally become more commonly appreciated by the mainstream. Stout mahogany frame construction veneered in block patterned Rush style cane. Mahogany accents in black lacquer. Aged to perfection. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship - built like a battleship. Exquisite textural pieces designed to anchor a special room. Excellent Restored Condition. The chairs have been professionally cleaned and re-lacquered. All cane veneer is intact and complete. The arm height is 23 inches. Seat height platform is 12 inches. Inside seat depth is 26.5 inches. The price listed is for the pair. Expert custom upholstery service is available.
